The United Kingdom holds many towns and cities still riddled interesting history and fun discoveries. You’ll also find plenty of Matlock shopping to engage in, so here’s some shops, stores, best buys and inside tips to point you in the right direction.
If you love candies and sweets then you’re going to love the Truly Scrumptious shop! Almost as good as Willy Wonka’s Factory, you’ll find so many kinds of tasty things to tempt your taste buds. But candy isn’t all they offer. For the perfect touch to that warm day, stop in here for some delicious ice cream. While they do boost the prices a bit because it’s in a tourist area, the treats are well worth it. The shop also offers seating outside in front and in a larger area through the back. You’ll find the staff to be warm and friendly, and if you just want a quick refreshment coffee and cold drinks are also available.
Matlock Market hall stands at the end of the town centre after a stream of high street and local shops. On a Saturday afternoon however, you may be disappointed with the lack of occupied stalls. Only a handful of stalls seem occupied: traditionally a sweet (candy) stall, a cakes and breads stall, a fruit and vegetables stall, as well as a handbag and luggage stall. In days gone by town market halls were a hustle and bustle of stall holders and patrons on a Saturday with the women of the town picking up fresh items for Saturday and Sunday dinners. These days, like in Matlock, many town markets have reduced down to a minimal number of stalls with modern-day supermarkets and out-of-town shopping malls taking customers away from the town centers and their markets. Still, it’s worth experiencing the Matlock street shops and taking a peek to see if there are any bargains.
