Forget a boring box of chocolates, why not indulge yourselves and sample some homemade chocolate or ice cream.

Imogen recommends visiting the Mayan Monkey Chocolate Factory for Valentine’s this year, noting: “After recently visiting the chocolate factory to make chocolate bars and bonbons, we recommend a visit this Valentine’s.”

“We had an absolutely amazing experience and all the staff were lovely! Especially the lady who helped us make the chocolate, we finished a little early so she gave us a tour too and explained all about the machines.”
