Covid-19 Update: Our apologies, due to issues over staffing and obtaining new stock, we have decided to temporarily suspend taking any new orders. We are looking to adapt the online orders to cope with the present situation. We are aiming to make our online ordering service available from the beginning of June. Our shop in Pateley Bridge will remain closed until government restrictions are lifted. Thank you for your support and understanding.

The Oldest Sweet Shop in the World

The Original Old Sweet Shop   (Official Guinness World Record!)

 The famous Oldest Sweet Shop in the World has been trading continuously since 1827! We are an official World Guinness record holder (Guinness book of records 2014 - The Oldest Sweet Shop in The World) and have appeared on national TV and in the world wide media. It is one of the few authentic traditional old sweet shops still selling retro sweets of a bygone age.

 The Oldest Sweet Shop online has been delivering old fashioned sweetsretro sweet jars & luxury chocolates for over a century and now online for over a decade. We pride ourselves on the quality of our confectionery which is still made to the original recipes dating to the 19th century (boiled in copper pans, the way sweets should be made) we have an unsurpassed knowledge of sweets and chocolates, gained from nearly two centuries of trading experience. Our packaging and presentation is second to none. Importantly we still retain the traditional business values of yesteryear which are today often lost.

We only source the finest products whether that is a black jacks, a pear drop (guaranteed to taste like a proper pear drop!) or the finest box of chocolates -we do not compromise on quality!

Most of all we love sweets and want to share our passion with everybody - enjoy!
