World of sweets exists – it is located in London

Brixton is one of the oldest areas in London, and it has everything: great movies, trendy bars and great restaurants, and because of the various communities, street life is intense. Here you can enjoy the proximity to the center, while remaining in the original district. And here is another reason to love Brixton: from 2013 Brixton became the home of the only chocolate museum in the UK capital. The name of the museum does not pretend to be original - The Chocolate Museum, but this is not the main thing. The main thing is what awaits the visitors inside...

Inside this museum you will learn all the subtleties of making chocolate: from collecting cocoa beans to already made chocolates. But this is not all! The highlight of the museum is an interactive tray for testing different samples that clearly represent the history of cocoa. It goes together with a box of 13 amazing chocolate treats, from traditional Mayan chocolate to desserts from French pastry shops. That is, the visitors of this amazing museum make an excursion into history, trying out various delicacies of confectionery art. Did you know that for the first time chocolate appeared in Europe as a medicine? These are exactly the funny nuances that the Chocolate Museum can give you.

In the museum's gift shop there are chocolates from around the world, but if you want to try on the role of chocolatier, you are lucky, because the Chocolate Museum provides such opportunity. There are master classes on the production of truffles twice a month. If you do not get to the planned master class, you can pay £12, and for this amount you will have a lesson, all the delicious ingredients and kitchen utensils that you might need in your work. But remember, the more you eat at the stage of making sweets, the less truffles will come out in the end. Do not say that you were not warned!

The museum hosts lectures, demonstrations and special events. For example, the birthday of Roald Dahl, who wrote a fairy tale novel "Charlie and the Chocolate Factory". Studies have never been so delicious!

Location: 187 Ferndale Road, Brixton, SW9 8BA. The nearest station is Brixton.

Opening hours: 14:00-19:00 (Wednesday to Friday), 11:00-18:00 (Saturday), 11:00-17:30 (Sunday)

Admission is free, but the cost of the master class starts from £12.

More information can be found on the website of the Chocolate Museum.
