What can I expect on the day
Why give a box of chocolates when you can go one step further with a chocolate tour of London! On these gently-paced walking tours around London you'll be tasting lots of chocolate and learning fascinating facts and amusing anecdotes too. Chocoholic heaven on the move in the capital!
A duo of daytime chocolate tours is offered, covering two different areas of London, namely Mayfair and Chelsea. You might think these areas are all about their chic boutiques and Michelin-starred restaurants, but this tour will give you a taste of the finest, most exquisite chocolates to come out of these smart boroughs. Even if you know the capital quite well, you are sure to discover new spots and hidden gems that gourmet chocolate-lovers will adore.
All tours into the sweet-smelling, smooth world of chocolate around central London are hosted by expert guides who certainly know their Rococo from their cooking chocolate and love to tempt you with stories and little factoids about choc, from the bean to bar. After a welcome hot chocolate drink to fuel you up for your walking, expect to tour and taste at some of London's finest purveyors of chocolate, including Prestat (we hear Ma'am in Buck House is a fan) and Charbonnel et Walker for traditionalists, to creative young guns such as Paul A Young.
There is also an evening chocolate tour, where the ambience is little more night-time luxury as you enjoy exclusive after-hours access to a leading London chocolatier who will give you a tour of the laboratory, whilst letting you in to some secrets of the magic cocoa bean. Of course, there are lots of opportunities to taste the chocolates produced in house, as well as sampling deluxe hand-made ice creams and even a rather swish chocolate cocktail to taste. We think this one is VIP for Very Indulgent Party!
Whatever tour you choice, one thing is sure - you will be consuming vast amounts of chocolate as you taste your way around London. Daytime or evening, the itineraries have been designed to offer a fascinating insight into our capital city and some of the best addresses for all things chocolate. And we have to say, if you go to Sketch for your hot choc drink, you simply have to go to the loo!
You might have always considered yourself a choccy fan, but after going on a chocolate tour of London, we have a feeling that a simple slab of milk chocolate won't cut it anymore and you'll be hankering for gorgeous hand-made truffles in a neat little box with a satin ribbon and those delicate rose scented creams you savoured on the day you went chocolate tasting in London.
