The Little Chocolate Shop is more than just a shop, and a visit to this attraction on the fringes of the Yorkshire Dales is an interactive experience that will delight kids and adults alike. Get your hands dirty while making chocolate pizza or lollies, or give truffle-crafting a go instead. Alternatively, observe the chocolate-makers at work from a distance before relaxing on the terrace at the on-site café with a signature shake or slice of cheesecake.
Things to Know Before You Go

Bring extra cash to stock up on local chocolates and truffles at the on-site shop or enjoy lunch at The Little Chocolate Shop café.
How to Get There
Situated in the Yorkshire Dales, The Little Chocolate Shop is easily accessible by private vehicle and there’s on-site parking available. From most directions, follow the A1 and then exit on the A684 where you’ll find The Little Chocolate Shop just outside of Leyburn. The closest train station is Northallerton, a 30-minute drive away.
When to Get There
Visit midweek for a quieter experience, as weekends and school holidays are the busiest times for both the on-site café and workshops. The Little Chocolate Shop is typically closed on Sundays. To enjoy the surrounding attractions, such as the nearby Yorkshire Dales, stop by during the warmer spring and summer months and make the most of your visit.
What to Do Nearby
The Little Chocolate Shop enjoys a privileged location on the fringes of the Yorkshire Dales, one of the largest national parks in England, and is also close to the famed cheesemaking region of Wensleydale. Make a cheese-and-chocolate day of it, then, before taking to the hills for a spot of biking, hiking, or horseback riding through the spectacular North Yorkshire countryside.
