This is the shop where you can find A.A Milne's loveable character Winnie the Pooh, a honey loving bear and of course all his friends like Eyore, Piglet, Kanga, Tiger and Roo.
The store is fairly small but they pack a lot in.
I bought a door handle tag for my bedroom with tidy this room - perhaps in the hope one of my housemates will do it for me?? :-)
You can also order online
What to buy: There are a number of collectable items as well as soft toys for all ages and story books
My sister is a Pooh fan of note!
When we came to Canterbury, this was one shop she HAD to visit! It has a wide range of Winnie the Pooh toys, ranging from puzzles to crockery to pencil drawings to fridge magnets!
Everything you could think of really.
We bought a little Christening bowl for my niece and some other knicknacks. My sister has enough Pooh stuff to be honest haha
Here is another photo of the arcade and its great range of shops. There is also a wishing well in the centre of the arcade so if your feeling flushed then throw a few coins in, you never know your dreams might come true(and if you believe that, you believe anything hahahahaha)
I can't remember what this shopping arcade was called, but i can remember that it was opend by the duchess of Kent in 1985 and has been built to a very high standard, with all the ornate ironwork and yellow brick. There are some great shops here as well

This shop will absolutely delight teddy bear lovers everywhere. Although named the Winnie the Pooh shop, all your other favourites (Paddington, Rupert etc.) get an outing. It has just everything bear related, and ranges from pocket money items to bears the cost of which, frankly, staggered me. These are only for serious collectors, I suppose.
What to buy: Teddy bears, and just about every related item.
As you can see from this piccie the main high street is Pedestrianised from top to bottom, there are "very" restricted times when vehicles can use the high street, making it a much safer place!
Ok, there are a few bookshops in town, the best being Methevens, right next door to the post office.
They have a huge travel section (which I live in most lunchtimes!!)
They have tons of books covering the city and surrounding areas.
What to buy: There are also a couple of others, waterstones the big chain are here, as is WH Smith, theres a small bookshop called Albion as well.
If you want your photos developed here or need any extra films or batteries, there are a few shops in the city centre that will help you.
What to buy: The main shop for developing is Boots, this is a chain of chemists but they have a great photographic service upstairs and can process in 1 hour.
Jessops is another, they process in 30minutes I think?!
There are also another couple on the main high street, but these are the main two.
What to pay: I think 1 hour in Boots is about £10 for an APS, depending on your type of prints. They have the prices up on the wall behind the desk anyway!
