Help Crown the UK’s Punniest Shop Name

Join Babbel in a nationwide search for the UK’s best pun-powered shop name..

Puns are a very British pastime, and form the backbone of many cringe-inducing dad jokes. However, our amusement at such word play is completely baffling to many overseas. Babbel is celebrating this peculiarly British form of humour by launching a nationwide search for the UK’s best pun-powered shop name..!

From well-known Scottish chippie The Frying Scotsman to Brighton’s infamous cleaning service Spruce Springclean, we're on a quest to find the shops across the UK that have eschewed conventional naming rules, instead opting for a sign above the door that’s memorable for its wit and imagination. We need you to help us find the very best.
