An extensive collection of keenly priced second-hand books always proves an attraction. Outside there is a growing display of garden and architectural items, in front of the brightly painted ‘beach huts’ containing yet more antiques, collectables, crafts and plants. Enjoy a break at The Flying Goose Café while you are here, where the emphasis is on local and home-made produce, including Creasey’s ham and bacon and Marybelle ice-creams.
Not only does the café offer a full range of teas and coffee made from freshly ground beans, but you will also find everything from a light snack to a full lunch, with delicious home-made scones, cakes and our ever-popular sausage rolls. Your dog is welcome to sit with you outside the cafe, although we do not allow dogs in the Centre itself. But there is much more to the Centre than the opportunity to buy or browse through antiques or take lunch or afternoon tea in the café, for there are large mature gardens and meadows to explore, freely open to customers (and their well-behaved dogs!), making a visit a ‘trip out’ rather than just a shopping expedition.
A sign points towards the field where Larry, Humphrey and Charlie Brown, our three alpacas, can be found – a great attraction for children and adults alike. We are open six days a week from 10 am to 5 pm (4 pm on Sundays), closing only on Tuesdays. The Centre welcomes disabled customers. Yoxford Antiques Centre is easily found on the A1120, the ‘Tourist Route’, about a mile from the A12 turn-off at Yoxford. Drive through and beyond Yoxford village, and you will soon see us on the right-hand side. There is ample free parking, and a friendly welcome awaits all visitors.
