DISCOVER THE DELICIOUS CHOCOLATE SCENE IN LONDON
Since 2005 Jennifer Earle and Chocolate Ecstasy Tours have been taking people around London neighbourhoods to explore the ever-growing number of chocolate boutiques.
As more and more patissiers choose to focus on chocolate, or city employees turn their backs on their desk job and retrain as chocolatiers, new hidden treasures of chocolate are popping up across London.
Chocolate Ecstasy Tours now run three regular tours of London chocolate boutiques, each visiting different locations.
The Mayfair tour that runs every Saturday at 10am is an introduction to chocolate, with chocolates to taste that are miles better than what you would find in most supermarkets, but still familiar and accessible. This is the tour with the royal history, in the poshest shopping district in London.
The Chelsea tour, on Sundays at 11am, is for more serious chocophiles, visiting some of the up-and-coming chocolatiers to sample their more experimental chocolate creations. It also includes a more in-depth education on the origin of chocolate. Both tours are still very light-hearted. We love chocolate and we believe it is to be enjoyed - we don’t mind if you still prefer your Mars Bar at the end of the tours! To ensure you get your chocolate fix straight up, both the Mayfair and the Chelsea tours kick off with an indulgent hot chocolate. Your guide will look after you with water and salty snacks to help you along the way, they will even have tissues, should you end up covered in cocoa!
The most chilled out of all the tours is the Evening Chocolate Tour. Starting at 6pm, this tour gives guests the chance to taste the best of chocolate in all its forms: truffles, bars, brownie, ice cream and finishes with a bespoke chocolate cocktail. As we guide you around Soho at night, you will also get an insight into this neighbourhood’s bizarre and sometimes sordid history and its growing hip restaurant and bar scene.
Each tour is designed to introduce the tour guests to new shops, new tastes of chocolate, new information on chocolate and a few interesting history nuggets as we wander around the beautiful London streets. Every location is expecting our arrival and they have samples ready for us to taste (or in some places we choose our own).You will also learn a little about the background of each venue. Most stores offer a specially agreed discount for any purchases for friends (or yourself!).
