EAT CHOCOLATE AND EXPLORE ITS HISTORY...
We will be closed for winter after the 15th of December. We will reopen around Easter 2024. See you then
Take a chocolatey journey 5000 years in the making at our new tourist attraction! Starting in a Mayan hut you will weave your way through nine eras, exploring how chocolate has ingrained itself into our society…
We can safely say that we have the only Aztec temple in Llandudno as well as a recreation of a pirate ship's cargo hold, a Moroccan tent and many other detailed scenes.
The tourist attraction is laid out across nine areas; each recreating a different part of chocolate’s history. Our helpful videos will be your guide and you will also find activities, information panels and wonderful scenes in our immersive world.
Our building is also the centre of our chocolate company, where we make a wide variety of products which we sell across Europe. When we are at work, you can take a peak into our world through the viewing window.
Why would you want to just read about the history of chocolate when you can taste it…
As you go round the experience, we have a selection of samples to help you see how chocolate has evolved into what it is today.
Enjoy a nostalgic look at our collection of chocolate wrappers, tins, boxes and posters from the last few decades.
We have items made by all the main UK manufacturers as well as some from companies that are now but a memory.
We even have a few that were made in the reign of Queen Victoria!
Last entry 20-30 minutes before closing.
It is free flow - You do not need to book for small groups. (Booking is advisable for large groups)
The attraction takes anywhere from 20-45 minutes to get round. (Depending on how many of the displays you wish to look at)
