My favourite Lewes Shop

My favourite Lewes Shop

As of February of this year I have made another big change, I moved to a new town in East Sussex – the quirky town of Lewes.

I’m also back to teaching yoga, which feels so unbelievably good. I really miss sharing yoga when I don’t teach. So if you’re around the Sussex coast on a Saturday join me for my Saturday slow flow class at the Equilibrium Studio, see here for more details.

Now that I’m starting to settle into my new town , I would like to regularly share my favourite things about Lewes here on the blog, so first up is my very favourite shop called Wickle – a mini department store on the hilly High Street of Lewes.

The first time I visited Lewes I stepped into Wickle, and it just seemed to perfectly capture the creative spirit and quirkiness of Lewes. Since moving here, Wickle has become my go-to shop for gifts. Not to mention the gluten-free award winning Battenberg cake (you must simply not go to Wickle and not try the Battenberg, even when you’re trying to be healthy, it’s a great gluten-free treat!). But there is not just cake on offer, they also do beautiful salads freshly made in the mornings.

But rather than trying to explain the variety of amazing, beautiful things to be found in Wickle, here’s a visual tour for you…

As you can see, there’s so much to tempt at Wickle! I love those stuffed animals on the walls, they look like something from a story book. Check back soon for more great things to see and do in Lewes, but also coming up are some posts about kettlebell exercises for yogis to help improve your poses, and a fantastic new Iyengar yoga book.
