The shop’s delightful and wise chief chocolatier, Jess, works tirelessly to handcraft a brilliantly intricate array of eggs, bunnies and other seasonal surprises, each one as eye-catchingly beautiful as it is delicious.

The big yacht race is the main event, of course, but there’s enough food, drink, market stalls and activities to ensure that everyone has a blast. Last year even featured the Easter Bunny himself dropping in via paraglider, soaring through the great blue yonder like some majestic, floppy eared angel. Find out more
