  • Went there several times for chocolate, my ex likes it a lot, as he describes: eating alone = cheating on me with chocolate. They do a variety of flavor, I would recommend the ones with liquor (rum gi...  more »

  • Brownies in this store are the best in the world! The day I went was Tuesday, but it was a shame because it was a regular holiday. I wanted to do shopping.
  • The lady who served me was extremely helpful, she helped me choose 9 chocolates as part of a graduation gift for a friend. I sampled some of the chocolate buttons and brownie and they were delicious!
  • Lovely experience. I picked up a gift box of truffles and some brownies for my partner and me, and was taken aback by the service. The woman serving was happy to offer recommendations and to chat away with me endlessly about chocolate. The presentation of everything I got was superb: the truffles themselves, the gift box, the bag, instructions for storing the chocolates (if they survive the night) and a handwritten 'key' telling you which of your truffles are which. It all felt very special. Perfect for gift shopping. To the chocolate: the truffles were all very tasty - delicate, distinct and interesting. The Bakewell Tart and Persian Spice truffles were probably my favourites, though I can see why their Sea Salted Caramel is so acclaimed. The Tobacco Caramel I picked up in a fit of pique was very interesting, and definitely worth a try. The brownies didn't stand out terribly for me, despite rave reviews. They're certainly very rich and chocolatey, though thankfully not to the point of being sickly, but I just felt like something was missing from them somehow. All in all very impressed, and will certainly be going back for another box of truffles before too long!
  • Yes it's expensive, but better one mouthful of Paul Young chocolate than a stomachful of inferior chocolate (i.e. almost all other chocolate).
  • Top quality chocolates and very helpful staff. I'll be back when I can :

Where to stay in London

Many of London's main attractions are spread out, so nearby public transportation is key. There is no downtown area as such in London, and some of the least expensive hotels have more convenient access to tourist sites than the costlier ones. For a quintessential London experience, consider staying in the West End. This part of town offers excellent theaters, historical sites, and eating and shopping options for every taste. Lodging won’t be cheap, but you’ll have the colorful variety of London life right at your doorstep. Look at Notting Hill or Chelsea for charming and less expensive boutique hotels and B&Bs.
