Kieran, a fantastic fella, served up our afternoon tea with smiles and could not do enough for us.  Scrummy scones, jam, strawberry’s and cream, sweet caramel slices, chocolate slabs, mouth-watering macaroons, chocolate dip with mini marshmallows and the most dainty and delightful, expertly made in house, chocolates.  All washed down with tea, hot chocolate and some of the fizzy stuff.

Make sure you don’t miss out on your chocolate fix the next time you’re in York and make York’s chocolate Story your must see attraction.

Thank you for reading 😊

  2. This would be a must-visit place for me in York, for sure, Makes me think of a chocolaterie (Choco-Musee) on rue St-Jean, just outside the walls of Old Quebec – I used to live half a block from there, and boy was it rough walking past every day on my way to/from work!

  4. I have been to York a few times and just haven’t made it to the Chocolate Museum yet. It looks like a really great place to explore, learn and obviously taste chocolates. I have been to the chocolate museum in Brussels and thoroughly enjoyed learning more about the history so think it would be even better learning about it from a more local aspect.

    That afternoon tea looks delicious too! What a great way to end a trip to a museum. Well deserved after the hard work of enjoying chocolate, right?

  6. Chocolate is my guilty pleasure, but this year I am on purpose choosing dark chocolate because I read its healthier. (Though not quite as tasty as the others) in my opinion. This looks like a great place to visit.
