This little shop packed with different types of Colmans Mustard and relevant merchandise is in the Arcade in Norwich. Colmans Mustard is unique to Norwich so if you are struggling for a pressie for someone; I think this is well worth a look.

This is a small shop in Norwich’s Royal Arcade that is very close to Norwich Castle. If you are indifferent to this brand and you don’t like this type of shops, you won’t miss much if you don’t go there. Otherwise, this is one of those feel-good things to do when in Norwich without having to cross other sights from... More

We saw a leaflet and found this shop. The variety of mustards on sale is vast and well worth examining. The Museum and the Colman Story side is spread around the shop in between the sales cabinets. The premises are not massive but a lot is packed in and is well worth the visit

It's in an arcade. You can probably but the stuff cheaper in a supermarket. Not sure what else anyone can say.

Hi Trecynon, Thanks for taking the time to review Colman's Mustard Shop & Museum. The shop & museum exists to help promote Norwich's industrial food heritage as well as offer a wide selection of mustard-related products - it is quite niche!

What a surprise it was to find that this shop is located in an Art Nouveau Shopping Arcade. Not really an English mustard fan, but I knew that they are based in Norwich and it's such an iconic brand, I've always wanted to visit. Even if you cannot have mustard like me, there are plenty of other food stuff and... More

Based in a victorian arcade off Haymarket is the Colman's Mustard Shop and Museum which is certainly different. The shop was busy with customers and people interested in the trade were looking over and reading the many information boards. Not as big as we thought it would be but if you like mustard this is the place to be.

There are very few English foodstuffs you can find in most supermarkets right across the world, and Colman's Mustard is one of them. For good reason: it's the best hot mustard there is! Colman's is from Norwich, England so it's only right the City houses a genuine shop/museum to celebrate this iconic condiment. Set in a lovely Edwardian (I think)... More
