Chocolate City!

A little escape from the crafting world today ... off to York with my two daughters Christmas shopping and taking in some serious chocolate shopping/tasting!

Where to start first!  York is famous for it's chocolate and has several chocolate attractions dotted around the City centre.

The famous chocolate trail itself starts at York Cocoa House, a recreation of York's 17th Century Chocolate Houses and takes in several famous landmarks within the City Centre before finally ending in King's Square at a new visitor attraction - CHOCOLATE at York's Sweet Story.

Other Connoisseurs chocolate stops along the way are York Cocoa House, Florence Wren, Bettys Cafe Tea Rooms, Bettys Stonegate, Hotel Chocolat, Giftag Chocolate Box, Hairy Fig, Melton's Too, Chocolate Heaven, The Chocolate Bar at CHOCOLATE - York's Sweet Story and Monkbar Chocolatiers.

We simply can't stop at all of these - can we?  Will post back tomorrow to see how we got on.


  1. Ooh sounds like I need to pay a visit to York one day. Looking forward to hearing how many stops you managed to make. What a pleasant challenge.

  2. Personally I'm not much of a Chocolate fan but I do have to admit that it looks yummy.
