The store’s range covers thousands of familiar products for Brits, from PG Tips to Weetabix, or Hartley's Jam to Patersons Shortbread, from Ginger Nuts to McVities Digestive biscuits, and yes they’ve got Marmite too.
This little piece of Great-British shopping is located in downtown Budapest’s Tátra utca, where you can get a great taste from Blighty via a wide range of food staples, seasonal specialties and holiday delicacies.
The British Store is only a few minutes away from Jászai Mari tér in the 13th District, but if you want, you can also shop online: check their website BritishStore.hu to see if your district’s eligible for free delivery.
Now the friendly English speaking team at the British Store would like you to know that although Christmas Pudding isn’t something that Magyars usually do, you can still find it here, in several varieties too.
For example the British Store has Matthew Walker’s homemade Christmas puds, made from the finest ingredients from carefully selected farmers and suppliers.
Christmas just wouldn't be the same without mince pies either, as they have been served as part of the traditional British Christmas meal since the 16th century. Today you can find a few types of authentic mince pies here, back then they were made of meat but now they’re made of sweet ‘mincemeat’; a mixture of dried fruits, sugar, spices and brandy.
Plus there are Festive Snacks, like Mackie's Pigs in Blankets Potato Crisps and their Turkey & Stuffing special crisps, just to tell you about two great seasonal snack flavours.
To top it all off here you can sort out top Xmas Gifts for family and friends who love a taste of the UK, as they have many Gift Boxes including Thorntons Classic Chocolates!
They also stock Jacobs Biscuits For Cheese in a lovely big tin, Grandma Wilds Embossed Musical Nutcracker Carousel, and Elizabeth Shaw Famous Names Signature Collection Liqueur Chocolates.
To get your Christmas meal or seasonal celebration started with a bang you’ll be happy to hear they even have a range of Christmas Crackers here as well – making it truly a one-of-a-kind store here these days as they are almost impossible to find elsewhere in Budapest or Hungary.
Being a shop that’s anything but ordinary, the British Store is both a Cadbury chocolate heaven and the mecca for British tea-lovers.
After shopping here you can easily hold fancy English style tea parties using specialties such as the award winning and rather untraditional Ace Tea London, which can be mixed into cocktails, or the naturally extraordinary Taylors Of Harrogate Kew Tea Range.
If you would take smaller steps in experimenting with tea novelties, chose Darvilles of Windsor Tea that’s inspired by heritage and tradition and flair.
To get any type of party flowing properly the store sells a huge variety of ciders as well as many beers, including Fullers, Robinsons, Innis & Gunn, Brewdog and Wychwood plus Crabbies ginger beer.
So there you go, this is the best place we know to go to get all you need for a happy holiday season, British style here in the heart of the Hungarian capital, ho ho ho!
Tátra utca 26.
