York's next great story
Chocolate News: York will have a new tourism attraction in 2012. 'Chocolate - York's Sweet Story' will open in the spring and is assured to be a hit with both children and adults alike. 'Chocolate' is to be in Kings Square York, right in the heart of the City near the Shambles. The new attraction explores the story of the chocolate and confectionery industry and will include interactive experiences (like chocolate sampling!) and will invoke many past memories as products old and current plus artefacts from around the world that tell the story are displayed. A new 'Chocolate Break' will be announced shortly - check back here soon. Older Chocolate news: A trail about the legacy of Joseph Rowntree launched by the Rowntree Society tells the story of perhaps York's most famous chocolate entrepreneur. Guests at the Newington can take advantage of a special package to explore this trail and learn more about early 20th century York through the Rowntree family history. Rowntrees chocolate works was just one of the many benefits to be left to the city of York plus a legacy of social justice, a research trust and was a forerunner in social housing provision still providing economic homes to this day. Book your visit for a Rowntrees Walk soon - special discounts available when you mention this newsletter.
