York's chocolate-scented streets await...

Glance in any direction when you’re in York, and it becomes clear you’re in one of the most stunning cities in the UK.

Cobbled streets wind their way between gothic buildings that reach up high into the sky – leaving you to gaze in awe wherever your wandering feet take you.

But sooner or later, the intoxicating aroma of cocoa mixed with sweet sugar begin to fill your nostrils. Your feet take on a life of their own as they pull you towards that smell.

Until eventually, the caramel-inspired waves covering the floor of York’s Chocolate Story welcome you to the home of one of the UK’s most beloved treats.

The bean to bar journey

On a guided tour, you’ll get the chance to learn all about York’s famous chocolate history before getting your hands on plenty of delicious samples.

It’s the easiest thing to just grab a bar of chocolate and tuck into it without a thought of the journey it took to get into your hands. But that journey is remarkable and worth discovering.

From the cocoa bean’s origins in Central America, through its long history and into its transformation to become a mouthful of decadent delight – you can’t help but be in awe of chocolate’s incredible story.

Before heading back home, best to stop by the in-house shop to load up on much-needed supplies, don’t you think?
