Recommended to all chocoholics

To all my fellow chocoholics, York’s chocolate story is a must see. It’s not only delicious but it’s educational, i never knew chocolate had such a past. The staff are so informative and enthusiastic which is lovely to see! I was hooked from start to finish. A fun, tasty and educational day out that ticks all the boxes!
