Grimm & Co... ...BY LAUREN MACKENZIE

Offering an enchanting experience for all, Grimm & Co is one of Yorkshire’s leading small attractions and recently took home a prize at the White Rose Awards 2018.

The museum of magical artefacts includes an amazing collection of objects and there are a variety of weird and wonderful items for sale at the unique apothecary, including ready-blended potions (aka bath salts) - making it the ideal place to get some Christmas shopping done whilst enjoying a fun day out.

There’s much more than just unique products to discover - the apothecary also houses Yorkshire’s own School of Wizardry and Wonder, with workshops for the apprentice sorcerer, from wand crafting to potion creations.
