Embrace is tucked away down a side road near the Childhood Museum, so it’s quite easy to miss. However it’s really worth taking a moment to find, I bought some lovely soaps and a pretty coat so I’m a very happy gift shop enthusiast today!...More

What a lovely surprise behind the door of this little treasure. I think the lady in the shop is the owner.......she was so friendly and helpful. I would highly recommend a visit when at the station. The shop is open from 10.30 til 4.30.
