This is now CLOSED for good.Seems like Unilever did it at short notice and with no advice as to an alternative site. I had made a special trip from London to go there so I am spicy hot under the collar. What is it with big companies and their lack of customer concern these days ????

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.

Unlike the press on this place it's a shop pure and simple and nothing else. Was not impressed to say the least

Nothing much to praise or criticise to be honest. Have popped in a few times when visiting Norwich, but there is really very little to see other than a few bits of memorabilia and an interesting selection of Coleman's products. As the title suggests, worth a few minutes of anyone's time as it's right in the city center. But unless... More

Sadly I wasn't overly enthralled with this shop. Even though it had lots of old artefacts and information about the history of the brand. I found the staff not engaging even though we were the only people in there. The store also seemed to be a bit messy, in the respect empty shelves and poor selections of the Colman brand.... More

Situated in the Royal Arcade, this shop is worth popping in for a look around. It has an artisan feel about it with non-mainstream food and other items for sale. The tag 'museum' is overselling it somewhat, there is some Coleman's history on banners and some artefacts, but this place is actually a themed shop with a bit of company... More

With Christmas shortly approaching - ideal place to go to get Christmas presents with a difference. Having a step son who likes mustard - this shop has valuable source of items consumable and non-consumable.

Came across the shop so thought we would have a look round. Found items were rather expensive so didn't make a purchase. Will carry on buying Colman's mustard from my local supermarket.
