EVERYONE at the Grasmere Gingerbread Shop loves to talk – to customers over our busy counter and on the telephone, as well as to passers-by.
But we also host special talks at our historic shop about Grasmere Gingerbread® to groups of visitors from the UK and tourists from the rest of the world.
Held outside our shop for up to 30 people, the talks bring Cumbria’s unique culinary history and the story of Sarah Nelson to life (if it’s raining we go under umbrellas or beneath the adjacent church lychgate).
Presented by an experienced team member in Victorian costume –great for photographs – they are very popular with special interest groups and UK and global coach tours seeking a different kind of inexpensive ‘pit stop’.
Our talks last between 20-30 minutes depending on your schedules but we can shorten or lengthen times to suit.
Any questions afterwards? Please just ask.
As you would expect – with the mouth-watering aroma of sweet ginger hanging in the air – everyone receives:
Group sizes vary from a minimum of eight* to a maximum of 30.
*Smaller groups can be accommodated – please telephone to discuss requirements.
Larger parties of more than 30 are split in two groups. Whilst the first group enjoys the talk, the second is encouraged to stroll around the village and adjacent 13th century St Oswald’s Church (where romantic poet William Wordsworth is buried).
