In Yorkshire, Parkin is as much a part of Bonfire Night as sparklers, toffee apples and hoping that the rain stays away. It’s a real warm, cosy scarf of a cake, deliciously sticky and with a fiery ginger kick.
Spectacular and unique, these dainty Genoese sponge fancies are each hand-iced with a Catherine wheel or rocket design. They're one of several shop exclusives, which also include our legendary White Chocolate Ganache Ghosts and our spooky Ghost Biscuits.
The picturesque Bettys at RHS Gardens Harlow Carr has a touch of magic about it. Why? Because it changes with the seasons. Take a chair in the Café Tea Rooms or on the terrace, and look out over the majestic gardens - lovingly maintained by the RHS - where the rich, abundant flora celebrates the four seasons with stunning displays of colour. It's never more spectacular than during autumn, when a visit to Bettys with a friend is best followed by a stroll amongst the bright, uplifting fall trees.

Jack D March is a Bettys fan and a hugely talented photographer and Instagrammer. In fact, we love his photos so much we wondered what would happen if we sent him some of our Halloween treats with the simple message, ‘Work your magic!’ These are his wonderful creations.
Halloween is a frightfully fun time of year when playful mischief and ghoulish games are positively encouraged. For that reason, it’s one of our favourite festivals, and we like to celebrate it the only way we know how: with a touch of traditional Bettys Britishness.
We’re really happy to announce some brand new enhancements to your online shopping experience, making it easier than ever to shop with Bettys for delivery to your door.
Announcing our new and redesigned range of chocolates, presented in luxurious new keepsake boxes with decorative patterns by York artist Emily Sutton. The only thing more perfect than what's on the outside, is what's on the inside.
As part of our Trees for Life work, we support the Hagge Woods Trust, which manages the 25-acre Three Hagges Jubilee Wood, and are helping them achieve their aim to develop it into a beautiful and thriving community woodland. Biologist, Lin Hawthorne, is helping to lead this pioneering approach to woodland creation and shares progress from the project through her ‘Nature Notes’ blogs for Bettys. Read her latest words from the wood.
It’s a hard job, you’ll agree, but Jamie Ball and Rick Tingley, two of the coffee experts from our sister company Taylors of Harrogate, have been busy working their way through some of Bettys most delicious confections. Their mission? To use their finely honed tastebuds and in-depth bean knowledge to come up with the perfect pairings of chocolate and coffee. That’s two of our favourite things, made even better.
