This great old fashioned Apothecary is the one that Branwell Bronte would buy his Opium from before going to smoke and drink in The Black Bull.
Its really nice inside and they have a lovely range of traditional products and remedies, the owners are very friendly and will be glad to offer you advice or just chat!
This was a nice shop in the centre just near the tourist information. it sold all sorts of things including fridge magnets, badges, coasters and many other items. It may not be the best place to buy souvenirs from but it was Open unlike the others!
What to buy: The chocolate box shop in Haworth is a real trip down memory lane. They sell old-fashioned British sweets like pear drops, cherry lips and cinder toffee. They also sell kali, a pot of rainbow coloured sugar crystals, which you get with a stick of liquorice or a lolly to dip.
Snowdens is a good old fashioned food shop where not only can you but a good range of foods but also the place to go for Bronte food based souveniers. Things such as Bronte biscuits, Bronte chocolates, Bronte cakes and everything Bronte. I wonder what the famous sisters would think if they knew they had launched a whole range of food stuffs! A good range of fruit and vegetables too and could be a useful shop if you are self catering.
Mrs Beightons sweet shop is the kind of sweet shop I remember in the late 1950s and early 1960s - glass jars with screw lids with every kind of sweet imaginable - hum bugs, liquorice, sherbert, Everton mints, toffees and so on.
The poster on the window saying that sweets are off ration and this is a poster that is kept there I think for the Haworth WW2 weekend in May each year. (Sweets were rationed in the war years and for some years after).
A wonderfully restored Victorian shop that is run by a mother and daughter. Worth seeing just for the original mahogany fittings, glass cabinets and their beautiful content. This is an elegant shop that sells a vast array of vintage cosmetics all packaged in beautifully designed boxes and bottles. Not really a shop for me but quite an evocative smell prevails in the shop and it is worth anyone spending five minutes in here just to get the feel of a Victorian shop.
I had checked out this site online before traveling. The shop is filled with so many wonderful bath/body products, I wish I had more time to see everything. If you like to pamper yourself with good quality balm, bath salts, bath treats, soaps, lotions, etc...this is the place to visit. The soap cakes look good enough to eat. I actually saw a little girl try to take a bite out of one of the soaps before her mother quickly got it from her : )
You may know, this shop has a lot of history. It still has it's mahogany display cases and chemist bottles displayed.
What to buy: I liked the Rose salts, the Cherry Almond Body Butter, and the bath treats in all fragrances. They look like candies.
What to pay: Moderately priced. High quality items.
Ponden Mill is one of the Haworth areas most visited soft furnishings and clothing retailer thats sells top brands at discounted prices. This was on of the first mill type shops in the north of England and is very popular especially at the weekends. There is a cafe within the mill.
The Bronte Weaving Shed was once a working factory and you can still see the impressive water wheel on the side of the building.
It now sells many things - real ales and whisky, clothing Yorkshire food and gifts and there is a Costa coffee shop within the building.
What to buy: The range of Yorkshire themed gifts are well displayed and reasonably good value.
There is a lovely sweet shop right near The Old White Lion pub in the centre of the village. Once again, another little find in the village that makes you feel as though you have stepped back in time: Mrs Beighton's Sweet Shop.
The walls are lined with see-through jars of multi-coloured sweets…Mouth watering treats abound in this little nook off the Main Street. You can imagine the Famous Five and Secret Seven of Enid Blyton’s imagination buying their gobstoppers and ginger beer from just such a place!
A lovely place in which to peep your head in search of sweets from yester-year.
A delightful shop in which to loose yourself for half an hour! This old fashioned chemist is filled with ointments and lotions from times gone by…using old fashioned packaging soaps and lotions are bottled and wrapped making delightful presents. There is also a small alcove at the back of the shop selling gorgeous materials and lace. I highly recommend you pop into this shop as you pass through the village. It makes you forget which century you are in!
What to buy: This place is a treasure trove of treats! There are rows upon rows of ointments and bath treats and odds and ends in their old fashioned packaging...bath products, make-up, old fashioned sweets, lace curtains, zambuc! It is facinating to wander around and see what you can find hidden amongst the shelves.
What to pay: The shop is not cheap, but you can buy some nice Christmas presents or birthday treats from there that are quite unique and very different.
This was a great looking little shop with some really good souvenirs in the window, unfortunatly when we visited on a Monday in Novemberit (like a lot of other shops) was closed.
I put this in just for interest as this is the smallest shop I have ever seen anywhere - the smallest shop in Haworth - sells souvenirs.
