Melton Mowbray Souvenirs

We love being based in Melton Mowbray, the "Rural Capital of Food". Not just famous for our pork pies and stilton cheese, this area is also home to the Grade II* Listed former estate of Anne of Cleves, as well as the grand St Mary's Church, whose building still contains many remnant parts from the 13th-15th centuries. With so much rich history in the picturesque place in the heart of Leicestershire, there are always lots of visitors coming to soak up the culture and consume the food! If you want to purchase a souvenir to remind you of your own visits, or want a gift to give someone who has made the trip from far away, we will have something for you here.

Food themed souvenirs

There are plenty of pork pie novelty gifts in our collection. These will serve as a reminder of Ye Olde Pork Pie Shoppe, one of Melton's most iconic buildings and one of the oldest pork pie bakeries in the country. Its black and white Tudor revival style is quintessentially English, and the food inside is as good as you'd expect from the town which invented the pork pie! To call you back to this place and all its culinary delights, we have pork pie shop themed magnets, mugs, bags, tea towels and more. Plus, you can even pick up your own wooden pork pie dolly to help you make the perfect pork pie case yourself!

Celebrating ancient architecture

We also have plenty of souvenirs which celebrate the graceful beauty of Melton Mowbray's historic architecture, whether that be in its high streets, schools or churches. It is an indication of how much history the place has that 'Melton' comes from the early English word 'Medeltone' (meaning middle town surrounded by hamlets). This connection with a rich history is not only born out in language, but also in its sublime buildings. To honour this part of the Melton Mowbray heritage, we have souvenirs such as the original pen and wash pictures of St Mary's and the Anne of Cleaves building. There are also postcards showing the best architectural beauty from the surrounding areas, such as the Buttercross at Oakham School, as well as canvas prints of Twyford Church and one of Melton Mowbray's town centre watering holes, The Half Moon Inn.

Foxy Lots themed souvenirs

As well as souvenirs to celebrate this unique town of ancient churches, art deco independent cinemas and beautiful town, themed, and country parks, you can also pick up some items which will remind you of yours truly! With fox themed pillows, snack boxes and storage bags, you can stay comfy and keep organised, all the while reminding yourself of the team at Foxy Lots - that is until your next visit of course!
