G Baldwin & Co Pharmacy

They have come a long way since George Baldwin first opened his doors on 77 Walworth Road, South East London in 1844.

In the last 170+ years, Baldwins has passed from the loving care of George Baldwin whose family helped to establish 12 shops (before downsizing) to the Dagnell family, who have enabled Baldwins to grow into the thriving and vibrant store you see today: London’s oldest and much loved Herbalist.

Now located on 173 Walworth Road, thei store still captures the nostalgic atmosphere of the original apothecary – wooden floors, high old fashioned counters and shelves stacked with herbs, oils and ointments.
