Visit the sexually charged hotbeds of decadence, depravity and despair that Georgian Londoners came to know as ‘chocolate houses’. 

WHAT'S THIS ALL ABOUT?

This tour takes you to the squares and cobbled courtyards of St James’s. Your guide will be the social historian Dr Matthew Green, who will be spinning tales of cacao pods and chilli, conquistadors, and gamblers in this delicious introduction to London’s addiction to chocolate. Free servings of Baroque hot chocolate will be served along the way - brewed of course, to an authentic 18th-century recipe.

Expect chocolate to take on a whole new meaning - really. This is a drink that bankrupted Florence, made fortunes and lost fortunes.  Salacious heaven in a cup.

THE ALL IMPORTANT DETAILS

All you need bring is a good pair of comfy walking shoes and a thirst for knowledge.  The walks run twice a year (Easter and Christmas) on Saturdays from 2:30pm and last 2 hours. Choose whether you want to do this walking solo or invite someone along to share the experience. 

The location is Mayfair and St James, London
