York is home to some big names in the chocolate industry, Rowntrees created Kit Kat, Smarties and Aero, whilst Terrys created the Chocolate Orange and the rich dark All Gold collection. The boom of the railway brought movement to the city and helped ship products around the country, making Terrys and Rowntrees household names. Join us to learn how chocolate was made and have a chance to create something special to take home and enjoy. Our chocolate making workshops take place in the gorgeous setting of the Mansion House, the official residence of The Lord Mayor of York, one of these was Joseph Terry, who took on the role 4 times and must have entertained greatly in the house in his day!
