A continuation of a tour of Great Ayton

We continue our tour of Great Ayton with a visit to local legend, Suggitt's. (Missed the first part of the tour? Hop onboard here).

Suggitt's ice cream shop is apparently renowned worldwide for it's ice cream (perhaps Captain Cook spread the message to Ozland?) so don't resist popping in on the tour- in fact, it'd be rude not to. Ignoring the fact that it was January in Yorkshire, I entered the shop/cafe in pursuit of an ice cream.

The left part of the building is the shop, selling mainly sweets and postcards, which feels slightly as if it's trapped in a gentle, nostalgic time warp. To the right of the door is a cafe area. In the summer, people queue down the street for one of the ice creams, so unsurprisingly, it is good ice cream, lovely and creamy.

Lastly, take your ice cream, cross the street, and eat it whilst watching the ducks trying not to fall off the edge of the picturesque waterfall. Such fun and games to be had in Great Ayton.


  1. I remember Suggitts being in one of my fave books- Pillow Talk by Freya North. She writes about places so well, this one stuck in my brain :)

  2. I've never read that book, but I'll definitely be giving it a go now, thanks for the heads up!
