At each section we were given... More

I really enjoyed the experience because i was with my class and the class really enjoyed the chocolate experience. The Butlers chocolate experience puts all the class trips to shame, I would highly recommend it to every other school for a trip and for visitors as well.

This was a fun way to spend an hour and a half!! The lady who ran our group was fantastic! She had a great sense of humour and contributed to our fun! We had some delicious samples along the way, painted our egg and spent a lot of money in the shop! Definitely worth the stop!

At the start of the tour you are dressed in a white overall and hat, which is all part of the experience.
