Pre booking well organised although a few problems making initial contact via email. The day itself -the pupils really enjoyed the museum and the hands on activities. The workshop was very good -pupils were engaged and entertained.Positive experience. (December 2019 - Secondary School)




Lots of information given about how chocolate was made and where it comes from. The children enjoyed tasting the chocolate. Had to pay extra to eat lunch inside a church as the weather wasn't good, which worked out at 75p a child. (November 2019 - Primary School)




It's a shame there is nowhere on site for the children to have lunch (September 2019 - Primary School)




(September 2019 - Primary School)




A really enjoyable experience and the children learnt a lot about the chocolate making process through their science based workshop. This meant that they were able to apply the knowledge gained to write explanation texts back in school about how chocolate is made. (April 2019 - Primary School)




The University was really informative and got the students thinking about what they could study as well as what Uni life would be like if they moved away from home. The session covered finance, living accommodation, the options of course available and a tour of the campus. We also got to sample what the food is like for those students who have catered accommodation. The chocolate factory was really interesting and it was fun being able to taste lots of chocolate but I was a little disappointed at how short the tour was. Over all it was a really good day and the student feedback has been extremely positive. (March 2019 - Secondary School)

Really informative and explains how York became a centre of chocolate production. (May 2018 - Primary School & Secondary School)




Thoroughly enjoyed the trip, as did the children. The content was engaging and age-appropriate. I'm pleased that we had done some pre-teaching to prepare for the trip, as without it, I'm not sure the children would have been able to engage with the Mayan specific workshop as well as they did. (May 2018 - Primary School)




Its very dependant on the person taking you round. (April 2018 - Primary School)




(March 2018 - Primary School)




Children really enjoyed this trip! Learnt about the history of chocolate and then made our own lolly to take home! Staff member who took us on the tour was very friendly and appropriate for KS1. (January 2018 - Primary School)
