In celebration of Chocolate Week the National Trust’s Goddards are flinging their doors open to the public. Visit the former home of Noel Goddard Terry, of the famous York chocolate-making firm, Terry’s of York. The house was designed by architect Walter Brierley in the Arts and Crafts style and is complemented by four acres of gardens, designed by George Dillistone.
The house has selected rooms displayed to give glimpses into the family home and working chocolate factory. The garden includes yew-hedged garden rooms, bowling green, wilderness gardens and plants for every season; it is also an oasis for wildlife.
Also join the York’s CHOCOLATE Story Head Chocolatier as he shows some of the techniques used in the chocolate industry, making some Terry’s inspired chocolates at the home of the Terry family.
