Nineteen of the best chocolate shops in the UK and Europe - This Week

R Chocolate

This London chocolatier and patisserie was born out of founder Sir Evelyn de Rothschild's lifelong love of confectionery. It now has two stores – its flagship in Belgravia and another in Richmond – with the former also playing host to a chocolate-filled afternoon tea and truffle-making classes. Its signature is its sea salted caramel elephants, the shape a tribute to R Chocolate's involvement with the Elephant Family charity, which helps protect Asian elephants and their habitat. Meanwhile the chocolate itself is just as ethical; sourced from Original Beans, not only is it made with high-quality ingredients but with sustainable production and conservation in mind.
