If you didn’t know York was the chocolate capital of the UK, you certainly will after a visit to one of the city’s most popular attractions. Starting with a guided tour, discover the origins of chocolate and the stories behind the York families responsible for Terry’s Chocolate Orange and KitKat. Watch carefully as you observe the skills needed to master the craft, then bite the bullet and give it a go yourself. You’ll even be taught how to taste like an expert, which will definitely come in handy when you reach the cafe!

For those really wanting to immerse themselves in the sugary deliciousness, why not treat yourself to a room at a chocolate hotel? As the only one of its kind in the UK, there’s plenty of unique experiences to enjoy – none more bizarre than painting your own portrait with Belgian chocolate! As well as truffle making and bean to bar workshops, you can even pay extra to have a chocolate fountain in your room. Over the top? Yes. Tempted? Absolutely.

We can’t talk about chocolate without an honourable mention to the UK’s top dog – Cadbury World. An iconic British brand known the world over, Cadbury has been lovingly making chocolate since 1879 at the exact site the factory stands today. Divided into 14 zones, the attraction includes rides, interactive games, and chocolatier demonstrations, as well as the opportunity to put the skills you’ve learnt to the test. And of course, there’ll be plenty of treats to take home too!

 Located inside Harrods in swanky Knightsbridge, Cafe Godiva is definitely the most pricey option on our list – but doesn’t everyone like to treat themselves now and again? From crepes and freakshakes, to pastries and cakes, the Belgian chocolatiers have sweet indulgence down to a tee. The real star of the show, however, is their ‘Create your own Fondue’ offering, complete with strawberry, marshmallow, brownie, and banana dipping pieces. In the mood to splash the cash? Go all out and order your own chocolate fountain!

 

Salivating? We thought so. With chocolate on the mind, there’s only one thing left to do… Head to          Super Break and let us take care of the rest!
