If you love chocolate then you need to hop along to Chococo to sample some of their handmade chocolates. ‘Cocoa Central’ as it is known is in the heart of Swanage and here you can watch the chocolatiers in action, hand making their original chocolate in the kitchen. You can also pay to join one of their chocolate workshops, but spaces are always at a premium, so we recommend that you book in advance.
