What you'll do
We'll start inside a mini-chocolate factory in Covent Garden (it won't be running when we're there). You'll taste the cocoa bean and several different types of chocolate and learn about the process of how chocolate is made, while enjoying a rich hot (or iced!) chocolate. Then it's time for the tour of London. Of course stopping for more chocolate treats along the way. From Covent Garden we'll head to Soho and more chocolate truffles. Then we'll try the best chocolate sorbet in town and some more chocolate gelato. Finally, we'll finish in an exclusive bar with a bespoke chocolate cocktail and send you home with a chocolate treat. I promise you will feel completely full of chocolate by the end of the tour!
I've been running chocolate tours of London since 2005. I'm a senior judge at the Academy of Chocolate and the International Chocolate Awards and a Chocolate Expert at the Great Taste Awards. I regularly speak on the radio and television about chocolate. I am passionate about random London facts and history and love to include interesting stories as part of my tours.
Water, hot choc, cocktail It is possible to get a non-alcoholic cocktail and a dairy-free hot (or iced) chocolate drink.
Where you'll be
We have exclusive access to the first location where we start with our hot chocolate to see their machinery in an area not accessible to the public. All of the other locations we visit will also be expecting us. They are some of my favourite places in London and I'm a regular there even when I'm not guiding tours! This tour is basically the best of all things chocolate - hot chocolate, bars, truffles, gelato, sorbet, cocktail and a brownie.
