Eat chocolate at Charbonnel et Walker

Charbonnel et Walker have been selling fine handmade chocolates since 1875. Formed from an alliance between a Mrs Walker and a Madame Charbonnel, who had previously worked with the Maison Boissier chocolate house in Paris, the original shop was at 173 New Bond Street in Mayfair.

Whilst the flagship store has since moved to the Royal Arcade on Old Bond Street, the chocolates are still the same, and are even a favourite of the Queen, who has endorsed them with the Royal Warrant.

Given all the above, readers will not be surprised to hear that they're jolly expensive, but might be worth a try for a special occasion or something. They are very nice.
