Handmade Easter Egg Decorating with Ashley McCarthy

4th, 6th and 7th April: £12 per person

This Easter, York-based master chocolatier Ashley McCarthy is coming to York Mansion House, and bringing his incredible creativity with him. In the State Room, multiple-award winner Ashley will take you through the art of decorating hand-made Easter Eggs, in a delicious chocolate of your choice.

From dark to vegan chocolate, and everything in between, this is a wonderful opportunity to treat a loved one, or just keep your creation for yourself (we know you’ll want to…!). Settle into the beautiful State Room, find out more about the Mansion House’s unique chocolate heritage, and get gloriously chocolatey.

Fancy making an evening of it? Our workshop on Saturday 4th is exclusively adults only. A cash bar will be available throughout the event, so grab a drink and get decorating!

Chocolate Trail

Throughout the Easter Holidays

Throughout the Easter Holidays, little ones are in for a delicious adventure with our Chocolate Trail! Running through the whole house, this self-guided walk through the Mansion House’s chocolate history will unveil York’s tastiest secrets, and the stories of the people who made our favourite treat what it is today.

Answer questions, solve puzzles, and explore the smallest cellar and largest Hall; and don’t forget to stick around for dressing up and our Little Mayor backpacks!

Running through the whole holiday, our Chocolate Trail is free with admission, and as always, York residents are entitled to 50% off. No booking required.
