Attraction Information

While other British cities were built on steel, coal or wool, York’s history is somewhat sweeter as you’ll discover at York’s Chocolate Story.

Discover York’s mouth-watering 300-year history with chocolate and unwrap the origins of much-loved and well-known chocolate brands. Watch as chocolatiers make delicious treats and then get to sample a few! Get hands-on as you wander through the exhibition that tells the stories of beloved sweet makers from back in the day.

Learn how chocolate is made from bean to bar and have a go yourself! Then enjoy more chocolaty delights in the café, not forgetting to pick up extra goodies for home from the shop on the way out!

It’s an interactive chocolate experience!

  • Perfect for chocolate lovers!
  • Interactive history of chocolate in York
  • Loads of chocolatey samples
