Quirkiest Greggs outlets ever – from Harry Potter-style bakery to converted bank

Greggs is a British staple that was first founded by John Gregg 75 years ago.

There are more than 1,700 of its bakery outlets in the UK including on high-streets, train stations and airports.

But these particular eateries really stand out from the crowd.

Bury St Edmund’s Abbeygate Street branch is often described as the “poshest Greggs in the UK”.

Its stunning exteriors wouldn’t look out of place on the set of Harry Potter, which is probably why it’s been described as the “Greggernaut” or “Ye Olde Gregges” over the years.

On TripAdvisor, a visitor described the outlet as “the most stylish Greggs (they’d) ever seen”.

Another described the shop as a “lovely old building” with “romantic charms”, which are words you wouldn’t often use to describe Greggs.

And on Reddit, a punter gushed that it “looks like the kind of place Harry Potter would frequent”.

The fancy Bury St Edmund’s outlet isn’t the only Greggs location that’s set tongues wagging.

Previously, customers were left gushing over outlet stores where they can get baked goods for a lot less cash.

One of these bargain shops is in Newcastle, where a bloke managed to snap up £37 worth of food for £12.

There are 13 more of these lesser known “outlets” across the UK too.

As these locations stock goods that can be a day old or slightly damaged, they’re much cheaper.

Meanwhile, you can find another quirky Greggs outlet in Edinburgh.

In Scotland’s capital, an old banking building was turned into a bakery.

The store has pillars and a crest above its door, as well as large sturdy windows.

Then in Peterborough, you can find a branch at Fletton Quays.

The Greggs store blends in nicely with a new housing development – and if it wasn’t for the logo, you’d never know it was there!

Another bakery that’s popular with customers is the one outside West Bromwich Albion stadium where football fans grab a treat before matches.

And we’d also like to give a special mention to the brightly-coloured store in Basildon that is affectionately referred to as "Patisserie Gregorie”.

During the coronavirus pandemic, there are new rules you must follow when going into stores.
