The Duck House – Brighton

Hello!

I do apologise for how long I have neglected my blog for 😦 I know I promised this post to a few people so I’m sorry for the delay!

Me and the mother went on our annual trip to Brighton about 5 weeks ago now and I stumbled across the most amazing little shop in The Lanes. We were walking back from The Seven Stars (on an unrelated note – you should go here! They infuse their gin and vodka with all different flavours and oh my god it is amazing!) but we must have taken a wrong turning somewhere because we ended up walking past this:

So this is a shop. A Rubber Duck Shop! But sadly it was closed! Poor mother then had to listen to my raspberry and vanilla infused waffling about how urgently we had to return to this shop in the morning.

Look at all these ducks! I think I’m in the wrong job. This is where I should be working. There is a duck for every occasion! I particularly liked the wedding ducks which were available in “Mrs & Mrs”, “Mr & Mrs” and “Mr & Mr” which was a nice touch. I definitely spent far too much time in this shop but I’d never seen a rubber duck shop before! Eventually though I came out with the following:

Einstein Duck, Brighton Duck, Queens Guard (I think that’s what they are called correct me if I’m wrong) and SPYRO DUCK!! My poor long suffering flat mate lives with me and all these crazy creatures that seem to waddle their way into our flat but even she loved Spyro Duck! I was gifted the little death keyring duck from the nice man in the shop. I think he thought I was Quackers. He’d be correct.

So if you are ever in Brighton please go pay this charming little duck shop a visit! Trust me there will definitely be the right duck in there for you! They even have their own bags!

After the Duck shop we went to Choccy Woccy Doo Dah. Choccy Woccy Doo Dah is to Chocolate what the duck house is to Ducks. And look what I found!

Chocolate Duck! I would never eat it though so reluctantly had to put it back :(. I still have my chocolate wand from the Harry Potter Studio Tour which has now gone way past edible so chocolate novelties are a bit wasted on me. Big bag of Revels or peanut M&Ms though and I’m sold!

As if I had not encounted enough ducks today then I found even more on Brighton Pier! Managed to win these in the arcade:

We even had enough tickets left over to get mum a cuddly Donkey from Shrek 🙂

Apologies again for the delay for this post, and all of you who were submitting guesses for what Ducks I got in Brighton now have your answer!

And if you wanted to go to any of the places mentioned in this post I promise you will not be disappointed!
