York is the UK’s home of chocolate, while other northern centres made their wealth from wool, cotton and steel, York went its own sweet way and built a city from chocolate. This great tradition continues to this day, where all over the city there are echoes of York’s chocolate past.

If you love chocolate, York is the perfect place to indulge your passion. Follow Visit York’s chocolate trail and discover how chocolate shaped the city and some chocolate-themed cafes, chocolate shops and historical sights along the way.

A number of hotels and guest houses are offering two night stays with that little extra something for the chocoholic plus there are lots more offers around the city celebrating all things sweet.
