Visitor Reviews

We loved our time at Butlers Chocolate Experience. I took my 3 boys (aged 7-9) on a rainy afternoon during the school holidays. Theres only quite a small number of visitors each tour which we liked as it felt more personal. The factory tour was a highlight - with a guide who spoke really interestingly about all the different parts of the production process. We also loved the chocolate experience room... I would highly recommend this tour.
