The Surprises Shop

Owner Gerry Routley moved to Dunster 45 years ago, a fortnight before the National Trust took over Dunster Castle. Since that time, The Surprises Shop has sold fairly priced pottery, stationery, toys and confectionery. Gerry is now in his 90th year and still going strong running the store, he says to ensure “my mind stays bright”. With 73 years of working in business under his belt, this is one shop on the High Street you may want to have on your must-see list. 

Address: Junction of Castle Hill / High Street and Church Street, Dunster.
Open: 11am to 1pm, 2pm to 3.30pm Monday to Saturday
