Hawkshead Chocolate Factory

Home > Lake District Events > Hawkshead Chocolate Factory

You won’t meet Willy Wonka, but a trip to the Chocolate Factory in Hawkshead is a fab way to keep the kids entertained making chocolatey treats while you relax in the café or browse even more chocolate in the shop.

The fun workshops run throughout the day and you don’t usually need to book in advance – so a visit is perfect if the weather stops you getting out and about on the fells and you don’t want to stay cooped up inside. Your children will make three yummy chocolate creations during the 45-minute workshop, and everything they make is theirs to take home afterwards – they even get to keep the colourful apron and hair net. They can choose which delicious chocolate shape they want to make and decorate, plus they’ll also make their own personalised sweet-covered chocolate bar and finish off by creating a chocolate and marshmallow treat. If you’re lucky, they might even let you have a bite.

Suitable for children aged three and up.
