We’re set to be the sweetest destination this Easter! Our chocolatiers are creating over 80 different Easter chocolate products from tiny bunnies and decorative eggs to filled eggs, nearly one metre tall bunnies and decadent truffles. Easter creations are in the showroom now – better hop to it so you don’t miss out on our delightful range to share with your family and friends.
Plus we have a weekend of free family fun activities. From Good Friday to Easter Monday, be greeted by the Chocolaterie’s Easter Bunnies, enjoy loads of free chocolate tastings, delight in our giant chocolate sculptures and the kids can find a special treat with our Easter egg hunts each day.
Hunts will take place four times a day (at 10am, 12 noon, 2pm and 4pm – no bookings required) in the Chocolaterie’s picturesque grounds where the Easter Bunnies will help kids under 12 search for special tokens to then claim their complimentary egg.
