This year, I’m making my way around World Showcase at Epcot with a monthly series of shopping stories. You may recall the first story that featured a visit to Canada Pavilion. Today, I’m sharing details about my recent stop in United Kingdom Pavilion.
When visiting the United Kingdom Pavilion, I love strolling along the cobblestone street and admiring the architecture of the shop facades. From a nod to Hampton’s Court Palace to a quiet English cottage, the shop exteriors are just as interesting as what’s found inside.
Inside, guests will find a wonderful mix of products representing the best of the British Isles. These items include apparel, jewelry, accessories, decorative items, consumables and much more. There’s even a spot to look up name histories and family crests.
At The Tea Caddy, guest can build their own selection of Twinings teas using a specially designed wooden slot box. I also found items inspired by a trip to London, England such as a toy London bus and apparel decorated with Disney characters.
The Sportsman’s Shoppe now offers golf accessories from The Old Course at St. Andrews, plenty of football items, and an assortment of pub goods from my favorite place to grab a pint, the Rose & Crown Pub located across the street from the shop.
Finally, the Toy Solider houses a mix of products from popular British television shows like “Doctor Who,” or British musicians like The Beatles and David Bowie.
I could probably write two articles about the United Kingdom Pavilion as there are numerous unique products offered in its many shops. Instead, I’ll share an image gallery of other things that caught my eye during my visit.
We are almost at the two week mark awaiting our upcoming Disney Spring Break trip!
We are dedicating a full day to the World Showcase side of Epcot this year!!
What is the photo of “is your name here” book about? I have some English blood in me and just wondered if this was geneaology related? If so, where would I find it?
You have peaked my interest and I cannot wait to go exploring in the United Kingdom pavilion and travel the rest of the world at Epcot World Showcase!
Thanks for a great post as always!!
@Ann – I hope you have a wonderful trip. The Epcot International Flower and Garden Festival will be going on during your visit. It’s such a lovely time of the year. I invite you to stop by the Crown & Crest shop where you can have a Cast Member look up your name. The name search might reveal a family crest, especially if your family is from the region.
In the England shop with the Sherlock, Dr Who, Beatles, etc…Where did all the Monty Python merch go?
@Ronald – We sent them on a quest to cut down the mightiest tree in the forest with a herring. 🙂 Actually, the World Showcase team periodically reviews assortments and tries new things. The newest items I saw were shirts featuring David Bowie and the animated series “Danger Mouse.”
We can always count on the UK’s shop catching SoccerKids attention!
