A family-run traditional sweet shop – tucked away in the Edwardian Arcade in the centre of Bedford. Arcadia first opened its doors as a sweet shop in 1905.
Stepping into Arcadia is a trip down memory lane and a nostalgic experience, we are proud of our heritage and maintaining the original ambiance of the shop.
