Gift shop has some nice souvenirs. Didn't do the 'tour' but may do so in future visit. Great central location. more »
From the outside you wouldn't believe they could provide such a good tour within. Our guide was fantastic, acting out her role with aplomb and helping bring the whole story to life. There is great use of technology and I was genuinely surprised to hear about the history of some of my favourite chocolate bars and confectionery. Plenty of tasting and interaction throughout topped off by a visit to the excellent shop.
Very interesting, well paced tour of the history of chocolate in York. This is not a factory tour but a journey through various rooms where the story is told in an entertaining way culminating in an opportunity to decorate your own chocolate lollipop. Great fun for kids but interesting enough for adults to enjoy too. Can get busy. We bought our tickets the previous day for a specific time slot.
