A difficult one, I run the London Chocolate Meetup Group http://chocolate.meetup.com/51/, there are just too many memorable experiences to pick one! At the top of the list though is our weekend visit to Brussels and a visit to the production facility for L'Artisan du Chocolat.
My favorite chocolate is:

Clay asked me to contact you regarding the tours that he's leading for the Chocolate Lovers Travel Club. Your group gets a 50% discount by virtue of the fact that the pound is worth twice as much as the dollar and all our journeys are priced in US dollars.
With that in mind, please check out our website - we have a fantastic trip coming up to the World Pastry Team Championship in TN, in October, we're going to Hawaii for both chocolate and coffee with 2 experts leading tour (Clay being one of them). That brochure will be on our site in June.
Now, we also wish to come to London by way of the Orient Express next May - Venice - Prague - London.
We encourage you to let your Meet Up members know about CLTC and what's coming up. Also please feel free to contact anyone else in Europe who LOVES chocolate!
We leave for Belize next week for our first CLTC trip and look forward to sharing about it when we return.
Although I run the club and make the travel arrangements, it really belongs to all of our members (membership is complimentary, of course) as it is strictly a traveling social club for those with a passion for chocolate, coffee and specialty teas.
So, we're all doing our best to build our club - and given that it's only been around since December - it's growing very fast.
I have been to London once (a whirlwind 4-hour layover on my way to Paris) back in 1993. Other than going from 105F degrees in Phoenix to 55F degrees in London - it was great. I especially loved Harrods! Anyway, it's nice to reach across the "pond" and touch base with you.
Another Londoner- cool- have you taken the Chocolate Ecstacsy tour there? Do you lead tours? I have compiled a list af about 30 choc shops in LON, not sure that all of them are still in biz....what i also would love to visit is the choc section of Harrods- any chance you could send pics??
Welcome to The Chocolate Life. I hear that London is a real hotbed of chocolate these days and I look forward to visiting there soon, perhaps even leading a group. I know the US members would love to hear more about chocolate in the UK and I think your London Meetup members might be interested to learn more about chocolate here in the US. I look forward to your participation.
