We spent an absolutely fantastic couple of hours at this factory. As well as being totally spoilt for choice when it came to buying sweets in the factory shop, we went on the factory tour where we rolled our own sticks of rock. With plenty of mis-shapes to sample these two senior citizens had an enormous amount of fun. Highly... More

We had been to Flamborough for a weekend away and called in here on the way home. We got there and the tour of the factory wasn't until 1pm. We had a look round and found a soft play area for the kids, so our 4 year old was straight in there and really enjoyed it. It passed the time... More

Went today with 5 year old and 2 year old. Well worth the visit. The children made their own rock and chocolate lolly. Also lots of samples of rock, sweets and biscuits. Staff very friendly and factory shop amazing. Would highly recommend. There is also a soft play and cafe attached. The only fault I could find that was you... More

Factories fascinate me and I was not let down. You can sample the wares all the way round and kids get to make their own chocolate lolly for £1. There's a good soft play for them to run off some of the sugar at the end too.

Great for inquiring minds and quite hands on, although this is at extra cost, so it could turn into being an expensive day out. Staff were great, especially the chocolate lolly making lady.

Quite boring as an attraction but handy for a toilet stop on a long drive to Scarborough. They also sell novelty shaped sticks of rock. If you like that kind of thing.

We happened across this by accident, but really enjoyed the tour, and rolling our own rock. Would have liked to stir the colours into the molten syrup/rock, but possibly not a good idea for h&s reasons!! Brilliant!!

Found this place, whilst driving past, gave the kids the the choice and they wanted to go in, great decision! Very busy but we did the factory tour, we rolled our own sticks of rock, tried their biscuit samples and the kids made their own chocolate lollies too. The only thing I would say, is to tell people when buying... More

My friends and I came here for a day out with our children. On entering the candy kingdom soft play I noticed an unpleasant smell which wasn't rock or chocolate. The staff whilst not rude are definitely not friendly. The actual soft play area appeared to be clean and in good condition and the kids certainly loved playing on it.... More
