Hope and Greenwood


Welcome to cornucopia of confectionery that is Hope and Greenwood where please, thank you and polka dots are never out of fashion.

From much-loved traditional sweets in old fashioned glass jars and pick'n'mix treasures, to a lavish selection of British-made chocolates - including Granny's favourite Violet creams - you are sure to find something to tickle your fancy.

At Hope and Greenwood we get very excited about The Best of British confectionery.

Miss Hope and Mr Greenwood believe that confectionery should be as gorgeous as a pair of posh knickers or your favourite perfume. They also like inventing new sweets such as Sugar Plums, Fizz! Bang! Wallops! and Gingerbread Humbugs, because they don't like sleeping much and who needs social life anyway?

I have been reading a book about owning a sweet shop, and as soon as I walked by this place, I knew I had to go in. The bright airy shop is so inviting and there is such a large collection of both traditional and new sweets. It was very hard to not buy a little bit of everything!

I opted for the medium bag and got to pick 2 sweets to go in. I got the cherry jellies and the pineapple chunk...more

Sweets! It's a proper sweet shop. Touristy souvenir things mixed with the jars of old school candy behind the counter, with an array of chocolate-y fudge seasonal things on the counter and just generally strewn about the place. tastefully, methodically strewn mind you.

Cute decor, love the colors, they have some candy accessories for the diet conscious gift givers.

Kind of out of the way,...more

I definitely do not need any candy.

At least that's what I told myself while I stood under the bright red awning of Hope and Greenwood's old-fashioned sweet shop and stared in at the brightly coloured sweets on display in the window. But then I saw the Bitter Raspberry Balls, the cola cubes and the pink chocolate pigs and I realised that I DID in fact need some candy.

As this store...more

I don't think this candy store could be cuter if it tried. It's candy-covered awesome. A stroll back to candy stores of yesteryear. Bright colors, outstanding variety, and just a whole lot of fun. I wanted to buy one of everything. I brought back a jar of gobstoppers for my office as a London souvenir. (Once the candy was gone, I brought the jar home to save.)

Great location in Covent...more
