Chocolate Manufactory Hands-on Chocolate Connoisseurs Tour

  • York Cocoa Works 10 Castlegate York, England, YO1 9RN United Kingdom (map)

Join us on our in-depth and hands-on guided tour of our Chocolate Manufactory at York Cocoa Works.

We'll take you into the Bean Roasting Department and through our Chocolate Manufactory with this in-depth and hands on tour of our facility. Together we'll ask for your help to create one of our latest origin chocolate blends, from analysing the cocoa, roasting the beans through to making the chocolate.

During your tour we'll share with you the secrets of our cocoa, the stories of the farmers that produce it for us and an insight into how we select and transform that cocoa into the chocolate that we make. You'll meet the chocolate makers that create our chocolate who will share with you a taster of what their currently creating and meet our chocolate team who will share with you their own favourite chocolate creations to enjoy at the end of your tour.

At the end of your visit you will hand mould your own chocolate bar from your choice of chocolate, tempering and packaging your own creation.

Following the tour you are invited to join us in our Cocoa Cafe or visit the York Cocoa House where you can use your ticket to enjoy further discounts across our whole product range.

Tickets are £75 per person and include tasting ingredients, behind the scenes tour of the facility, hands-on cocoa handling and chocolate making insight as well as your own crafted chocolate to take home.
