Lakeland Store?

I love browsing in kitchen/household stores such as Lakeland. I've been to the Lakeland store in Stratford-Upon-Avon. How does the Guildford one compare? Is one Lakeland in the area better than any of the others? Are there better kitchen/household stores in the area? Any tips welcome! - thanks!

Zoey I have never been to the Stratford store so I cannot compare. The store in Guildford is on two floors.

You might also enjoy browsing Cath Kidston's store.

Hi, the Lakeland stores stock the same lines (with the exception of the Head Office Store in Windermere which has a greater range) and just scale up and down the amount of space devoted to a particular line depending on store size. There is a far greater range of products to be had online. Hope this helps.

Thanks to you both! Petal, that's pretty much what I thought, nice to have the confirmation. The Stratford store was on two floors, but I didn't go upstairs. And JBart, that Cath Kidston's site - wow! You can still buy oilcloth! Aprons! And the tea and egg cosies are charming! I could go nuts in that one! It's on my list! And yes, I'm gushing! Can't wait!

Thanks, JBart, for that second store!

I'm staying in Epsom with my daughter and son-in-law Oct. 30 - Nov. 9, returning Nov. 10. I'm thinking either on one of the weekends, or Nov. 2, for a Guildford trip. Would the stores be open on Sunday afternoons?

Both Steamer Trading and Cath Kidston are open 11am - 5pm on Sundays but Lakeland is closed.

Recently returned. I enjoyed an afternoon Nov. 2 in Guildford. Delicious lunch at the Loch Fyne there, then an afternoon of browsing and a bit of buying in Lakeland, Cath Kidston, and Steamer Trading Cookshop before catching the train back to Epsom. All in all, a fine time out. Thanks for all of your help!
