York chocolate story

York Chocolate Story

The York Chocolate Story tour is an interactive journey through the history of chocolate. Not only is it great fun for all of the family, but you even get to make a tasty treat to take home! Plenty of delicious chocolate samples can also be tasted throughout the tour. Perfect for those with a sweet tooth!

The York Roast Co

If you are looking for a spot of lunch on the go then the York Roast Co is the place! They are probably best known for their delicious Yorkshire pudding roast dinner wraps, but you can get some other tasty sides too.

Stuffing balls and roast potatoes all come smothered with thick, flavourful gravy and are perfect to eat in or take away. Absolutely delicious and well worth a visit if you are in York!

Potions Cauldron

For the truly Harry Potter obsessed who are looking for things to do in York, you can even make your own ‘potion’ drink at the fantastic Potions Cauldron in The Shambles. My teenage daughter had fun making a delicious ‘Power of a Wizard’ potion drink. This went down a treat on a hot day!


The Dark Horse Espresso Bar

The Dark Horse was a place we found ourselves popping back to on multiple occasions. You can grab a truly high-quality cup of coffee here as well as some tasty snacks to fuel your shopping adventures in The Shambles and the York Markets where this is located.


I would definitely recommend the warm chocolate banana bread with butter. Perfect with one of the delicious lattes from The Dark Horse.


Bad Dog Bakery

If you are looking for artisan cakes and tray-bakes then Bag Dog Bakery has to be on your list of food stalls to check out in the York Markets. All of these delicious sweet treats are home made by the lovely Ellie who is always happy to help.

lemon crumble

Our favourite had to be the Lemon Cream Crumble Slice. The perfect mix of citrus and sweet! Eat them on the go or ask for them to be boxed up and save as a desert for after dinner. Lovely with a mug of Yorkshire tea!


That Fudge Guy

If you think you’ve tried good fudge then think again. That Fudge Guy has the best fudge we’ve ever tasted and it went down a treat with the whole family when we took a box back home to share with our family and friends here in Somerset.


The fudge is all hand made by Roy and he’s always happy to suggest some new and exciting options that you might not have tried before! With just about every delicious flavour you could dream of catered for That Fudge Guy at York Market is a must visit!


Gourmet Hotdogs

Another great place to try out is Gourmet Hotdogs. Also located in York Markets, this is perfect for when you want a quick bite to eat that’s packed full of flavour. You have a wide variety of choice when it comes to the hotdogs and their toppings. A quick and easy snack to grab and head off for more exploring!



Just around the corner from the Shambles and York Markets is Milkshack. This is the place to go if you want a seriously sweet milkshake and have a love of confectionery.


You can combine just about any sweets or biscuits to make your own milkshake. Perfect for cooling down on a hot day.
