We’d booked online for a tour that started pretty promptly. Probably about 30 in the group, all ages, and content was pitched pretty well for all of us. There were funny stories, chocolates to taste and some great video story telling elements.
At about 75 minutes duration it all felt rushed though, with not enough time (for us, at least) to look at the photos and displays in the different sections, and a sense that the shop was the most important destination.
The chocolate-making demo in particular was ridiculously short and could easily have been more informative and less ‘here’s one I made earlier’.
We caught fascinating glimpses of the people who’d worked in the factories, the work conditions and social activities provided by the employers as well as old adverts, branding and TV commercials - intriguing social history that deserved a closer look.
