The Londonist give our new Chocolate House Tour a winning review
The highly discerning Londonist has joined the Guardian, Telegraph and Time Out in giving our new Chocolate House Tour a glowing review. Read the full feature here.
According to reviewer Sejal Sukhadwala, herself something of a chocolate connoisseur, the immersive tour brings London’s forgotten chocolate houses bursting and bubbling to life, giving a “fascinating insight” into how chocolate corrupted the most fashionable quarter of London, St James’s, one that ranks as amongst the city’s most beautiful today with its graceful neoclassical townhouses, mighty elms, and lavishly wide streets.
Being something of a chocolate connoisseur herself, Sejal was pumped to try a shot of our thick, rich, spicy baroque hot chocolate, a modern-day re-imagining of Monsieur St Disdier’s brew, then one of the most luxurious and extravagant drinks in the world.
The Chocolate House tours have got off to a great start and they usually sell out fast. We’re running them throughout 2014 and beyond; click here to book your place to avoid disappointment.
Oh, and here’s a picture of Henry Jermyn, pioneer of St James’s Square and the Father of the West End, seconds after sipping a dish of inferior-quality hot chocolate:
