The Enchanted Chocolate Mine
More attraction details
Attraction details
Recommended length of visit: <1 hour
Owner description: The Enchanted Chocolate Mine is a very small visitor attraction located beneath the chocolate shop in Kirkby Lonsdale. Aimed at children and the young-at-heart, this free attraction provides a quick insight into the world of chocolate mining. A short visit might only take 30 seconds but if you follow all the story boards you could be in the mine for up to 10 minutes. Now, a lot of you may be thinking that chocolate only grows on trees, and you'd be right to a point. But here at Kirkby Lonsdale we have been mining chocolate for many years. Actually the Faeries have been mining here for years, not us - but well, you can find all that out for yourself by visiting the history, community and geology pages. The Chocolate Mine is located at the foot of some steep stairs which might prove tricky for those who have mobility issues.

Lovely little shop, excellent choice, a treat. Chocolate mine very sweet and very small. We treated ourselves to a selection of the hand made dark chocolates every single one of them was delightful. Even my diabetic husband was pleased with the selection.

Extremely charming, and it makes you smile (even though we think we know where chocolate comes from!!!).

“Great quality! Great place!”
Reviewed September 1, 2013 via mobile

Absolutely love this place, visit every year and never regret it. The chocolate mine was a great suprise and the chocolate is to die for, cant get enough.
bought a couple owl shaped chocolates for some friends and they begged me to get them some more for next year.
There's a super range for such a small shop is great if u have 5 minutes and want good quality chocolate :)

“Not what I expected!”
Reviewed August 27, 2013

Before a recent visit to Kirkby Lonsdale I heard about the Chocolat shop with 'enchanted mine' beneath. The shop upon arrival was tiny and the chocolates expensive. Deciding to go and see what the mine was like I can honestly say I was very disappointed as it was so tiny and dark and claustraphobic, not worth going down the dangerous flight of steps to bend double to see a hole in the wall with one display of the mine being worked! It is okay if it was as the website described but definitely not what one imagines before seeing it!
