Abbe Bates, Editor of Group Travel Organiser magazine said, “The experience that CHOCOLATE – York’s Sweet Story provides visitors with is both engaging and of real quality. The way in which history and heritage are presented has changed hugely in the past few decades with new technologies and approaches, and the people behind this attraction are making a reputation for themselves as experts in their field. The attraction has done well to create an immersive experience where groups are given their own chocolatier as a guide and the chance to taste, smell and feel chocolate as part of a visit.”
CHOCOLATE – York’s Sweet Story opened in March this year and tells the story of chocolate in York, UK. The attraction is the sixth in the Continuum portfolio which includes the Spinnaker Tower (Portsmouth), The Real Mary Kings Close (Edinburgh), Oxford Castle - Unlocked (Oxford), Kent Life (Maidstone), and The Canterbury Tales (Canterbury).
