This tour was launched in 2005 from a love of chocolate, London and meeting people. Now there are a team of passionate guides who will ensure that your time spent with them is delicious and entertaining.
The tour starts in one of London's most exclusive venues with a rich and indulgent hot chocolate and pastry whilst your guide shares with you an introduction to chocolate and the tour ahead. After a private tour of the venue's constantly-changing art collection (and a bathroom break) you'll be out on London's streets for part two.
Wandering through Mayfair, St James', Piccadilly and Soho you'll take in incredible architecture and learn a little more about each area. All of the venues you'll visit are expecting the group and delighted to share their best treats with you, as well as a discount if you want to buy some for later (or as a gift).
By the end of the tour you are guaranteed to feel completely satisfied with chocolate, or else your guide will get you more!
Public payphones are disappearing everywhere in the mobile era, and of the some 47,000 phone kiosks remaining on British streets, fewer than 11,000 are that iconic, classic red phone box.
The two most popular variations of this British classic were designed in the 1920s and 30s by Sir Giles Gilbert Scott—same bloke who did the Bankside power station that now houses the Tate Modern. Its design and domed top were supposedly inspired by Sir John Soane's tomb in the yard at St Pancras Old Church.
