Our award winning educational programme brings the National Curriculum to life in ways that you might not expect.

Through the story of chocolate we cover subjects related to history, science, and geography. The local history of York is a strong feature in our classes, as is the practical science of chocolate creation. Our class also explores the story of chocolates’ discovery in the Americas and its eventual journey to England.

As accredited Quality Badge holders and winners of the Sandford Award, we are highly qualified in delivering educational school trips that follow the curriculum;  inspiring and entertaining children through the story of chocolate. To find out more about our deliciously different approach to learning outside of the classroom, contact our friendly team today by emailing

A visit to York’s Chocolate Story is a feast for the mind as well as the tastebuds.”
