The York Chocolate and Sweet Trail Treasure Trail starts at:

Blake Street

Discover the wonderful world of chocolate and sweets in the heart of York, the chocolate city. Now deeply entrenched in the history of York, the confectionery story began as far back as the 18th century.

As York's sweet story unfolds, you will see a grand selection of the city's architecture and historic attractions. Starting at the centrally located Visit York tourist information centre, you will be led past the Mansion House, along the shopper's haven that is Coney Street, round past the monumental Clifford's Tower, up the cobbled, olde worlde street that is The Shambles, into the vibrant market place, through the buzzing cafe and bar-filled winding streets of Swinegate, onwards through upmarket Petergate, before you reach your final destination - the chocolate museum.

York Cocoa House have sponsored one of the clues on this Trail. They have also kindly offered 10% off your bill when you show them your York Chocolate & Sweet Treasure Trail.

This one and a half mile Murder Mystery Walking Trail will tantalise your taste buds and will last approximately one and a half hours. It is suitable for both pushchairs and wheelchair users.

The York Chocolate and Sweet Trail Murder Mystery Treasure Trail should be purchased prior to leaving home. Once you have your Trail booklet in your hand you're good to go!
