A family visit to Goddard’s house

Some times the greatest treasures can be on your backdoor. Living in or around York you become numb to the history all around you. Bobbie has been around old things (Roman walls, ancient buildings, Victorian landscapes, me etc) for as long as she can remember and although some things fill her with wonder,  history doesn’t quite do it for her and I suspect that’s because she lives in a city surrounded by Roman walls and enough history for a county let alone a city.

Be that as it may, the wife and I attempt to take our kids to historic places all over the UK. That means not forgetting to do so in our own city of York. Goddard’s House is the newly opened home of the famous Terry’s family of chocolate factory fame.

The bellow images are of our visit, they had games available to play on tables which was of great fun to Bobbie, Amelie and National Trust properties don’t get on just yet but she’s mellowing slowly.

Highlights picture wise

  • The Terry’s mixed drops with 1930s decor behind looks awesome
  • The fact that, not only did they make chocolate oranges…they made chocolate APPLES!
  • finally the Terry’s ash tray.

Anyway click below and enjoy…Sorry for the lack of activity on this blog.  I’ll work my way through the back log now I’ve taken loads of pictures but had no editing time, I’ll catch up.
