Was quite happy to see the Beehive Building as it houses my favourite chocolate shop Haigh's Chocolates, as it is in the main street it does not smell of chocolate like Haigh's at the The Strand Arcade in Sydney, I did get my rocky road

Haigh's is right on the corner where I went back (twice) to to pick up some delicious dark chocolate for my husband... I could have quite easily gone and bought one of everything and to top it off they offer a free taste which I happily accepted!!

As this Building is within skyscapers, eArmy Morning or Late afternoon 6 to 7 pm is the right time to have the sun on the Building. Do keep un mind this Timeline Renates to the Summer time arround end of January.

This building is wonderful, it is so unique. Have never seen anything like it. Haigh's Chocolates are in this building, which is certainly worth a visit.
