Celebrating York's Chocolate heritage, industry & culinary expertise.
The city of York has had a long and distinguished history with the confectionery and chocolate industry, even back in 1781 the city boasted 8 confectioners for it's 17000 inhabitants. Today the Nestle's Factory still creates 1 million Kit Kats a day! whilst the city has a comforting smell of dark chocolate lingering over it on roasting days. Many of York's population have had family that once worked in the confectionery dynasties of Rowntree, Terrys and Cravens, and everyone has a lasting memory of their favourite chocolate bar, many of which were created in our city.

Hold Your Breath For The Ultimate Journey Into The Past
The world famous JORVIK Viking Centre is a must-see for visitors to the city of York. Built on the very site where archaeologists found the remains of the original Viking City of JORVIK, the JORVIK Viking Centre offers visitors a unique opportunity to ride in a time-capsule and take a journey through the streets of AD975 Jorvik, a city as important in its day as London or Tokyo. Everything here is based on fact, from the working craftsmen, the chattering noise of the gossiping neighbours to the smells of the cooking, the cesspit and the preserved 1000 year old Viking timber. Passengers are transported through the Viking City of Jorvik, taking in all the sights, sounds and smells, for the most authentic taste of everyday Viking life.
