One of Norwich's most popular and cherished tourist attractions.Colman's have been making fine quality mustards for over 180 years and this tradition is celebrated in Colman's Mustard Shop & Museum.We stock an extensive range of powdered and prepared mustards, including a number of specialities made exclusively for the shop and a wide selection of mustard pots and spoons, gift packs, tea towels, Colman's memorabilia and more.Our displays illustrate all aspects of the history and production of Colman's mustard, with many historic items on show such as wartime mustard tins and Art Deco mustard pots.Housed in the historic art nouveau Royal Arcade near Norwich Market, the shop is a careful replica of a Victorian trade premises."A Real Taste of Norwich's History".

We loved this place but: Davina the Dragon got her mitts on it and closed it, undoing all the excellent work put in by the now defunct Norwich Heart.

The shop is really bright and lovely with little old fashioned treasures and just a little present to bring back for friends and family after your holiday.

Shop and museum? Well, in truth far more shop than museum. All manner of mustardy products but who needs that much mustard? Excellent range of cakes at sensible prices but could be more interesting.

Correction: They stopped distributing the small jars we use at home, but Colmans still make French mustard and only supply it in a 2 litre jar (getting-on for ½-gallon). I suspect that if you still want to get this, it will... More
