Our guide was amazing, really interacted with everyone throughout the history of chocolate. Obviously all the chocolate was great to try. Only bad point i have is that the last two activities seemed quite rushed.
Great way to spend one to one & half hours following the history of Chocolate in York. Learned some interesting facts during our time here. Great to be able to make your own chocolate lollipops and (at an extra cost of £3) truffles. I must...More
We went and had a great tour, the guide Pedro was informative and entertaining and the tour element of the visit was very good. Unfortunately the rest of the staff encountered were quite rude and the admissions and cafe area looked run down and dirty.
The tours are very busy, because of this we prebooked. My wife uses two crutches to walk, it was very pleasant to find access is totally disabled friendly and each point at which you stop to listen to the story there are seats available. The...More
Recommended to visit by others who had been to York before us. Great for families, and those with a disposition for chocolate. I learnt about the history of chocolate from our expert guide Pedro (After Eight) and tasted the product from its early stages to...More
We’ve always just walked past on previous trips to York, but having been on a diet recently we decided to treat ourselves.
The tour itself was fun and informative with different forms of presentation to keep it interesting, Nick our guide was fab, very knowledgeable,...More
Interesting and interactive, with lots of chance to try chocolate along the away. Our tour guide was knowledgeable and engaging. We paid extra for the truffle rolling which was a fun and delicious addition
Hello, My wife and I are having our anniversary in York. We're travelling up tonight and coming back Wednesday lunchtime. We've looked at things to see; York Minster, Clifford's Tower, the York Chocolate Story ;) Would a York Pass be the best thing? How many things would you need to use it for to get good value? I notice the Hop On bus is valid for July, but also the boat ride on the River Ouse. If you buy a one day York Pass is it valid for the same day or 24 hours, e.g. if we bought it...More

To work out if the York Pass is the best option for you, you'll need to look at the cost of the pass and then the cost of entry to the attractions you want to visit, add those up and see if it comes to less than the cost of the York Pass. If you book online for July it says you get 15% off a 3 day pass so that might help swing it in the favour of the pass too. The 24hour bus ticket is usually that - valid for 24hours so you can spread it over 2 days if you first board part way through day 1.
York in 1 Day (9 Replies)
Hi, We will be in London March 13-20 and decided to do a day trip to York on Wednesday March 16th. I know that a day trip is not ideal because York is worth a few days but it was all we could fit in. We arrive by train at 9:54am and leave at 7:11pm. I know the things that we must see and some that we would like to see if time permits and am hoping you can give me an itinerary of which things to do in which order (which attractions are near each other etc.) We have purchased York passes...More

Shambles is interesting as it's still the same narrow street it was hundreds of years ago and has been used in films such as robin hood (recent version). It will certainly be a full day to cover all of those you list as 'must's' tbh.
Yorkshire itinerary in August - all advice appreciated! (15 Replies)
Hi! I'm sure you get asked this a lot but I would really appreciate your help. My fiancé and I are coming to UK for 8 night in the beginning of August (3 Aug - 11 Aug) and will spend the first night in London because we have tickets to a play. On Saturday morning, we want to leave for countryside in order to do hikes and enjoy the scenery. I am thinking North Yorkshire might fit the bill and here is my proposed itinerary, could you please have a look and see if it's feasible? For some...More

Oh and if it is relevant: we will stay in self-catering accommodations because we are vegetarians and are not quite sure whether pubs will cater for us. :) I have found suitable accommodations in the areas I mentioned (in rural areas, not villages).
