The Best Chocolate Shops in South East England

As with The Midlands, the proximity of the South East England to the city of London means many producers in the region supply the capital's glitzy restaurants and hotels, so the calibre of produce here is exceptional. A diverse range of chocolate makers and chocolatiers span Berkshire, Buckinghamshire, Oxfordshire, Dorset, East and West Sussex, Hampshire, Surrey, and Kent. The national chocolate chains have outlets across the Home counties and there are many more independent makers and shops spanning the region.

I've separated the listings for London and Greater London to make it easier to read. You can find my list of London chocolatiers here.

I've excluded supermarkets and franchise stores from this list. I urge you to support your local chocolate makers as many of them are crafting superb quality chocolate treats and gifts. I've listed bean to bar chocolate makers seperately. If you are a real chocolate fan, try a chocolate bar from your local craft chocolate maker and you'll be blown away by how different it tastes compared to mass-produced chocolate. I've also listed national chocolate chains seperately, and have defined a chain as a business that has at least two stores.

Run a chocolate shop but missing from my list? Please get in touch as I'd love to add you to my growing list.

Disclaimer: Distances in this calculator are approximate and are listed as the crow flies (you know, the fastest way to get to chocolate). Online shops are normally open to place orders 24/7, subject to availability. For physical shops, check store opening hours before travelling to avoid disappointment.
