York Chocolate festival

A visit to Northallerton somehow doesn’t seem complete without a trip to Betty’s. Right in the centre of the high street it’s really hard to miss with a beautiful seasonal displays of cakes, pastries and breads in the window. I’ve actually been coming to this particular Betty’s my whole life!
