National Trust: Blewcoat School Gift ShopThis small, distinctive school building boasts graceful architecture and a noble history. Standing alone in Caxton Street, Blewcoat was built in 1709 to grant an education to London’s most deprived children at the expense of a local brewer. It remained a successful school up until 1926.

Today the National Trust Gift Shop and Information Centre can be found in the endearing building. The shop offers a wide range of related merchandise, much of which is exclusive to the National Trust. However, a statue of a Blewcoat charity boy still stands above the doorway serving as a poignant reminder of how this building became a haven of hope to so many children.
