2012’s Awarded Winning Attraction, York’s CHOCOLATE Story is an interactive museum, café and shop located in the heart of the city. This experience is an entertaining and informative guided tour of the attraction, taking you through the history of York’s most famous chocolate-making families and their finest creations. As part of the tour you will make your very own chocolate, as well as tasting it for yourself.

Travel through different Zones where you’ll discover the origin of chocolate, how it is made, how to taste it like an expert, as well as learning about the sustainable future of this delicious sweet treat. You’ll also uncover a host of surprising secrets and fascinating facts behind York’s greatest chocolate products, from the Chocolate Orange to the globally famous Kit Kat.

York’s CHOCOLATE Story experience is spread over three Zones.

Your journey begins in the Story Zone, taking you back thousands of years to the rainforests of Central America. This is where the power of the mighty cocoa bean was discovered by ancient tribes. Your expert tour guide will then lead you on your journey through the history of York’s most famous chocolate-making families and the fascinating facts behind their finest creations.

You will continue on to the Factory Zone where you will learn how a simple cocoa bean is transformed into the finest chocolate in the virtual chocolate factory. While you taste the chocolate and watch it being made by the skilled chocolatiers, you will learn the secret of why it makes us feel so good. It is then your chance to get hands-on and create your very own chocolate delights at the Chocolate-Making Station.

Once you’ve explored chocolate making and its history, enter the Indulgence Zone where you will put your new knowledge into practice as you are served a luxury hot chocolate made from the chocolate York’s CHOCOLATE Story produce.

Great few hours away from the hustle and bustle!

I bought this at the end of December 2016 for a trip to York in February 2017. The staff were all very friendly and our guide who's name I can't remember now was very enthusiastic and helpful the tour was good in that there was a tasting at each stage of the process . Then we moved on to making a white chocolate lolly which we decorated with sprinkles and chocolate etc this was good as it was something take home without having to pay extra! We choose to have our hot chocolate at the end and it was divine! We both had a white chocolate hot chocolate.

A must for any chocolate lover!

My sister and I had a great time and enjoyed all the free samples. I also like history and liked learning about the history of chocolate, it's relation to York and how it's made. It was a shame that the package I selected was advertised as including a free visitors guide and free hot chocolate each but once booked the paper work didn't have any mention of it and therefore we couldn't claim them once there. But we still had a great time anyway.

Fun and interesting

We were bought this as a gift and decided to make it part of a day trip to York. The experience was very good and we both really enjoyed it. Staff are friendly and make the experience fun. You get to try a lot of chocolate too! I think it's good for all ages and would be great for families. We went on a Saturday and it was very busy so the group we were in was big. This meant that we could only just fit in a couple of the rooms. There were always seats for those who needed them though. A thoroughly enjoyable experience overall!
