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

You don't really see many things like this anymore. It has some good snippets of information around, but there's also a lot of products to purchase, some quite interesting. To be honest, I've had great service on one visit & average on another. The arcade it is located in is lovely too. If you're in the area, it's a good... More

We visited the Colemans Mustard Shop & Museum in Nowich, after the comedian Harry Hill mentioned it on TV - well, we were in the vicinity anyway. The shop/museum is located in the Royal Arcade, a delightful area with many other interesting shops. The shop/museum is interesting to visit though you will have seen everything in a hour. Some interesting... More

The Royal Arcade is a lovely Victorian relic of how retailing used to be, and the Colman's Shop & Museum is a worthy occupant. It's a museum showing the history of mustard, especially a large variety of pots across the ages, and it sells the products too. All museums have a gift shop nowadays, so why pretend it's otherwise.
