We have 42 Roly’s Fudge pantries across the UK, all the way from Falmouth, Cornwall to Keswick in the Lake District. Whilst our stores are located in towns and cities that are all unique in their own way, we have compiled a list of some of our favourite tourist destinations that are situated close to one of our pantries, so you can enjoy your fudge in an extra special place!
We have just opened a store in Lyndhurst, a village considered as the capital of the New Forest with many regal ties. You can find us on the High Street (@lyndhursthighst)! There are many different things to do when visiting Lyndhurst, especially if you’re a fan of history. In the graveyard of St Michael and All Angels Church sits the grave of one of the New Forest’s most famous residents, Alice Pleasance Liddell. Alice inspired the famous books by Lewis Carroll: “Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland” and “Through the Looking Glass.” The nearby Bolton’s Bench (not much beyond the bottom of the high street) is one of the villages most popular landmarks due to its green, open space and superb views.
To continue with the book theme, visiting Exeter will provide some insight into JK Rowling’s inspiration for her wizarding world of Harry Potter. Our pantry is located on Queen’s Street, close to the quirky, independent shops of Gandy Street, the place which allegedly gave inspiration for Diagon Alley. Exeter is also home to the narrowest street in the UK: Parliament Street. At its narrowest point, the width is only 25 inches! Why not come and visit these unique streets, both a short walk from our Exeter pantry.
3. Matlock Bath
Our Matlock Bath pantry has just opened! Matlock Bath is a picturesque village in the Peak District. It has been nicknamed “Little Switzerland” thanks to its beautiful alpine scenery. Our store is located right next to the Peak District Mining Museum and Temple Mine (@PeakMines), so you can take a guided tour into an authentic mine and explore some of the history of Matlock Bath. If you don’t fancy going underground, you can enjoy your fudge at all heights! Or if you want the best view of the rocky walls, wooded hills and lakelands of the village, you can take a cable car ride to The Heights of Abraham (@Hts_of_Abraham), a popular tourist destination and the perfect way to see the beautiful scenery of the Peak District.
Recently named “The Best Place to Live in the UK” by The Sunday Times, Salisbury is also a great place to visit and is home to one of our Roly’s Fudge Pantries. The Cathedral (@SalisburyCath) is one of the central attractions of the city and here you will find the four original Magna Carta manuscripts, dating back to 1215AD. The Cathedral’s spire is the tallest in Britain, standing at 123m above ground level! Known as ‘a city in the countryside’, there are many picnic spots to sit down and enjoy some fudge with friends and family.
Salcombe is one of the most beautiful coastal towns in the UK and we love that our Roly’s Fudge Pantry contributes to the many wonderful boutique shops, high street brands and independent producers that line the town. Salcombe is a water sports haven and the crystal blue waters are enough to tempt anyone to take a dip! The Salcombe coast makes the perfect backdrop to enjoy some of our delicious, crumbly fudge, so why not extend your stay? The Camping and Caravanning Club (@CampAndCaravan) will help you get more from your camping holidays and there are many great spots in Salcombe where you can enjoy the great outdoors.
