A retro sweet shop with shelf upon shelf of sugary nostalgia and handmade chocolate from various chocolatiers.
Gordon & Durward's kaleidoscopic sweetie shop and factory has thrilled kids – and adults alike – since 1925. Its quaint, old-fashioned trappings include a Wonka-style Grandfather Clock made of sweets in the window and shelf upon shelf of sugary nostalgia – from clove rock and their famous sugar mice to chocolates, toffees and all manner of chewy and boiled offerings from the jar. Their own traditional, handmade confections include an enticing array of flavoured fudges, tablet, macaroon and nougat – many of which you can watch being crafted in the factory at the back of the shop – and are embellished by memorable Scottish brands such as Jenny's of Edinburgh, Duncan's Chocolate and Buchanan's Boilings.
