Castle Welsh Crafts is a family business that has been supplying Welsh gifts and souvenirs for over forty years. From t-shirts and magnets through to miner’s lamps and Penderyn Welsh Whisky, or just a postcard and some creamy fudge.

Attached to the main Castle Welsh Crafts store is the very popular Lovespoon Gallery. Here you can find the world’s largest and smallest hand-carved wooden lovespoons. During the 17th Century the giving of wooden hand-carved gifts to loved ones was common amongst working people, but the gift of the lovespoon originated in Wales. They were given to a woman as an indication of the gentleman’s serious intentions. Designs were often influenced on things around him, and soon certain symbols became traditional with a traditional meaning.

On offer is an extensive range of carved lovespoons suitable for many occasions, including weddings, anniversaries and birthdays. They have also incorporated the small gift shop 'Things Welsh' which use to be in Duke Street Arcade and specialised in Welsh and Celtic jewellery.
