Charlie’s not the only one who had a golden ticket into a chocolate wonderland.
To celebrate the final year of the modern-classic London theatrical experience, Charlie and The Chocolate Factory
, yelpers were given a magical evening filled with sweets in the belly and seats in the theatre. We began at Hotel Chocolat
for a bean-to-bar experience and learned how the chocolate is made. Then, we got the chance to make it ourselves (man, that was a lot of bean grinding). Afterwards, we were whisked away on our tour to see the famous musical, which is based on the novel by Roald Dahl and directed by the great Sam Mendes (and it has some pretty catchy original songs). It was as delightful as it was colourful. It was a mad evening fit for anyone still a little bit of a child at heart.
But don’t just take our word for it. You can read all the reviews here

All this sweet info not enough for you? We’ve put together a beautiful map of the West End with some of yelpers top picks for things to do. Give them a read and enjoy your adventure.
