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.
