9 Bridge Street,
Rimmingtons has been offering its dedicated healthcare services for well over 180 years to the people of Bradford. This well known pharmacy was founded by the prominent chemist and druggist Felix Marsh Rimmington, in the 1830s and its elegant façade is a well known and loved feature of the city centre, standing opposite the historic City Hall.
Rimmingtons has been operated from the very beginning with a very strong ethos and passion for high quality individual service which is why it is loved by many and is why you find Rimmingtons still with us today.
The history of Bradford is also closely entwined with Rimmingtons, and one of the more infamous episodes dates from 1858 with Felix Marsh Rimmington uncovering the mystery of the humbug sweets poisoning! The poisoned sweets were traced to a market stall on what is now Kirkgate Market. Rimmington confirmed that each sweet contained enough arsenic to kill two people, unfortunately this misfortune led to the death of around 20 people and contributed to the passing of the Pharmacy act 1868. Felix was also involved in shaping the Pharmaceutical society we have today. He passed away in the 1890s and was buried at Undercliffe Cemetery.
Rimmingtons continues to offer a national healthcare service in a beautifully laid out and modernised Victorian pharmacy, which is truly bespoke. Whilst you attend to your healthcare needs you can marvel into Bradfords Victorian past, a truly remarkable mix of time periods set decades apart, a must see pharmacy and loved by many.
