Blackpool, the home of the ‘kiss-me-quick’ hat is a must visit for souvenirs. And Brighton is spot-on for artwork and traditional English fudge and toffee, the folk back home will love you for it! If you’re looking for something with a bit more endurance try the Denby Pottery Factory in Derbyshire for all your kitchen-related cravings.
