Enjoy a spree
Not just a pretty village, Walsingham is a fun place to shop, with a handful of excellent independent shops, each with their own distinctive style.
Award-winning farm shop
Walsingham Farms Shop was established by a ground-breaking partnership between the Walsingham Estate, its tenant farmers and local producers, aiming to connect shoppers with farming and the countryside.
Enjoy beef from Great Walsingham, pork from South Creake, lamb from North Creake. In season there is game from the Walsingham Estate and venison from the Houghton or Holkham Hall estates. The kitchen is busy every day, making pies and quiches, fresh soups, ready meals, cakes and puddings.
You may find homegrown allotment produce alongside Norfolk’s finest fresh fruit, vegetables, herbs and salad. The shop is open seven days a week, but visit walsingham.co for up to date information and opening hours.
Walsingham’s Old Mill (formerly part of the village’s historic prison) is home to Holt Antiques, upstairs, for original antique oak and country furniture, fine art and decorative period items.
Downstairs in the basement you’ll find a local artists’ studio, they are happy to greet people and to show their work.
On the corner of the High Street and Common Place, Shed Crafts offers an eclectic mix of original craft work made in Norfolk, with knits, clothes, jewellery, paintings and vintage items.
Close by the Mill is Littleblood, an interesting, one-off shop hidden away nearby. It’s an unusual shop that combines decorative vintage treasures with a great selection of leather bags. This old brick and flint building used to be an icon painter’s studio, then a carpenter’s workshop and is now home to Littleblood and it’s evolving collection of unique & varied objects.
Linking directly with Walsingham’s religious history, the Pilgrim Shop in the High Street has an astonishingly comprehensive range of religious items, from icons, rosaries, statues, church incense and candles, to Christian jewellery, baptismal and confirmation gifts, pilgrim badges and sacristy supplies. Visit pilgrimgifts.co.uk.
Ore et Labora in the High Street supports the Roman Catholic shrine, bringing together products created at monastic houses throughout Europe and beyond, from honey to leatherwork.
Visit their page on the RC shrine website.
Let The Children Live
Commended by the Cash in the Attic team, this village charity shop is well worth a visit, with good quality donated items – raising funds to transform the loves of street children in Colombia. Visit letthechildrenlive.org
