Why we love it

Paxton Gate will fill you with wonder. It’s a treasure trove of natural oddities and specialty knick knacks. The front of the shop contains animal and insect oddities, while the back of the store showcases their specialty plants. Ever wanted to own a carnivorous plant? Here’s your golden opportunity. I don’t want to spoil the surprise, so I won’t go into much more detail. Some of this you’ll have to just see for yourself.

We recommend

Open the door at the back of the shop for a peak at their small but delightful landscaped patio.
