The Enchanted Chocolate Mine is a very small visitor attraction located beneath the chocolate shop in Kirkby Lonsdale. Aimed at children and the young-at-heart, this free attraction provides a quick insight into the world of chocolate mining. A short visit might only take 30 seconds but if you follow all the story boards you could be in the mine for up to 10 minutes. Now, a lot of you may be thinking that chocolate only grows on trees, and you'd be right to a point. But here at Kirkby Lonsdale we have been mining chocolate for many years. Actually the Faeries have been mining here for years, not us - but well, you can find all that out for yourself by visiting the history, community and geology pages. The Chocolate Mine is located at the foot of some steep stairs which might prove tricky for those who have mobility issues.

From the outside and the fact that it is a chocolate shop it is very enticing to go in. However, once inside it is a bit disappointing as there is a cellar, not a mine, with a couple of ugly pixies in it. There is...More

We popped in to see the mine. It's downstairs and not really more than a very very tiny room in the basement. However the kids enjoyed it. The selection of chocolates is very wide and there are some whiskers as well. I ended up with...More

The shop carries every type of chocolate you could imagine. My favourite is chocolate and chilli. The chocolate mine in the basement is great for the children who can see how chocolate in mined in Kirkby Lonsdale.

It's a tiny room in a cellar with a couple of pixies and a display - not much but my kids and niece clammer to go there whenever we're near by ! Nice chocs sold upstairs
