    Celebrate Easter in Britain’s Home of Chocolate

    Only five days left until Easter comes to York. Beginning this Friday (19 April), York will be celebrating its chocolate heritage with York Chocolate Festival. The city lays claim to being ‘Britain’s Home of Chocolate’. It was once home to two of the country’s most famed chocolatiers, namely Rowntree’s (now Nestlé which still produces millions of Kit Kats in York every day) and Terry’s (remember the Chocolate Orange?). Over the past few years, there’s also been a revival of chocolate making by independent artisans in the city and there’s even a downloadable walking trail to discover more about the city’s chocolate making credentials.

    York Ice Trail Success New dates announced for 2020

    As busy as a summer’s day – that’s the conclusion drawn in research published today on  York’s frozen Ice Trail.  Thousands of people turned out to see fifty icy sculptures dotted around the city on the first very chilly Saturday in February.  Organisers, Make It York, moved the trail from December to February to help bring visitors into the city at a quieter time of year.  On the back of the success of this year’s trail, the event next year will be back to two full days; Saturday 1 February and Sunday 2 February.
