A new, immersive exhibition exploring the history of chocolate is coming to Greenwich this Easter.

The new exhibition will launch on Good Friday, marking the beginning of the Easter festivities in the Old Royal Naval College.

The exhibition, named Chocolate House Greenwich, will aim to recreate the 18th century “royal” Chocolate House of chocolate makers Grace and Thomas Tosier.

The exhibition will explore the origins of chocolate when it was first discovered in Central America, exploring how it has evolved over time and some of the key players in the chocolate-making game.

The exhibition will feature an audio soundtrack and visual experience created by writer and actor Jonathan Coote, which will present the proprietor of the original Greenwich Chocolate House, Grace Tosier.

The soundtrack will capture the essence of the chocolate social club at Hampton Court, where visitors will be able to listen to the conversations of great minds of the day: Sir Christopher Wren, John Evelyn, Royal John Flamsteed, and John Vanbrugh.

Chocolate House Greenwich will reveal the architects, astronomers, scientists – and chocolate makers – that made Greenwich a centre of innovation in Georgian Britain.

The exhibition will also be accompanied by a series of events including a family-fun Easter Trail, along with various chocolate-themed activities and chocolate making workshops over the spring and summer.

Entry to the Greenwich Chocolate House is included with the price of a ticket to enter the Painted Hall at £15 for an adult, increasing to £16.50 from April.

Children go free and entry is also included as part of a Discover Greenwich adult ticket, and it will be running from March 29 until November 3.
