    London/Chocolate and alleyways

    Im catching the train down to London on Wednesday,staying overnight to meet up with a friend from Devon.
    We both have places we want to visit during the 2 days we are there.
    However, I remember reading about a trip that I think Ilklyway (sorry if Ive spelt that wrongly!) that involved dodgy alleyways but the best Chocolate/hot chocolate. We are both into chocolate, and with all the walking we
    Will be doing, it would be good to find it.
    Can anyone help out with a name and where it is please , I tend to use maps.me to find places on foot -
    It doesn't stop me getting lost though!

    Thank you

    And for the record, that alley was not dodgy! I led Ilkyway and ceepee there very safely! It's on Broadwick St andthere is also an amazing place for weekend brunch just down the street called The Ivy. It's not cheap, but great ambience and on the weekend they make a special sourdough loaf. Yum!

    @Jaffa,

    From the posts about their London Bihnfest:

    The chocolate shop, Said London:

    MONDAY - SATURDAY 08:00 - 23:00

    SUNDAY & HOLIDAYS 11:00 - 19:00
    And there was also a posted example of one of the chocolate bars in that thread, following the many Shaun the Sheep pictures:

    @ceepee - Thanks very much...Ive saved it to maps.me and it seems to be perfectly placed for a visit...
    @Pokilani - Not sure where I got the idea that you would lead anyone down (or up) a dodgy alleyway...perhaps that's just me then..
    Roll on the walking and chocolate adventures over the next two days.
    Now have to pack,but seeing as its only overnight, shouldn't be too difficult!...Co-pilot is my favourite bag of choice for this, just wish my toiletry bag would fit more easily in a front pocket.

    Ha...
    Well I survived..Chocolate was amazing, the walking was very tiring, so needed the refreshment..(no excuse needed though)
    Managed to avoid the security problem on the friday, but there was lots of armed police at Kings Cross station the day before.
