Really good entertains all ages plus lots of tasting

Really enjoyed the tour, our guide was engaging and fun and you get to taste your way through it. I really loved how interactive it is and it suits all ages. My daughter went there on a school trip and enjoyed it so much she wanted to go again on our visit to York. Don't miss out on the history of chocolate that is part of York's past and present.

Emma was very friendly, helpful and clear. She was professional when technology let her down in one of the rooms. It was very interesting and one thing that has stuck is that Cadbury’s don’t put a glass and a half of milk in their chocolate as you cannot use milk in liquid form
