At York Cocoa Works we are an open working chocolate factory in the heart of York, inspired by York's chocolate making heritage. We look forward to welcoming your group to join us to learn how we craft our chocolate, how the city's heritage inspires what we do today and how we're trying to make chocolate that's different. 

Our group visitor experiences share the chocolate making process from cocoa bean through to chocolate bar with an opportunity for your guests to get hands on and craft their own chocolate to take away and enjoy! We encourage group participation and co-operation, but at the end of the workshop everyone gets to take home something that they enjoy that they've crafted themselves as an indulgent souvenir of their visit to York.
