£6.95-£8.95; cheaper when bought with an attraction ticket
Experts from York’s Chocolate Story will be guiding folk around the city and highlighting its unique chocolate history.
They will take people to key areas of the city centre and reveal fascinating facts about chocolate heritage. And there’s an opportunity to sample treats from York’s three big confectionery names along the way: Rowntree’s, Terry’s and Craven’s.
The remarkable history is hidden within York’s winding streets waiting to be “unwrapped” by the guides.
Destinations include St Helen’s Square and the Terry’s shop (did you know there is a ballroom with a fully sprung floor inside?), Lady Peckett’s Yard, Coppergate where a sweet factory once stood over a Viking village and many more.
Tours start in King’s Square opposite York’s Chocolate Story and last about 1 hour 15 minutes.
