Indulge yourself in the home of chocolate
What's your favourite chocolate bar? Aero? Yorkie? Mine is a Kit Kat. All these chocolates have something in common, and if you've spotted the title of this article, you have probably already guessed what it is. That's right. They all originated in York. York is known as the home of chocolate, and continues that tradition with its themed cafes, tours, and stores.

One such place accommodates all three: York's Chocolate Story. As well as giving daily tours, history lessons, and tastings, the company also host special events around the holiday season. Right now Halloween and Christmas are fast approaching, and they have some special evening dos on offer.


27th October - 4th November, 10am-6pm
