Hot on the heels of the Diamond Jubilee and Olympics, comes the official Coronation celebrations and with it a new flurry of ‘Great Britain fever’. With this in mind, House of Dorchester, the premium British chocolatier has created three new product ranges designed to appeal to both UK and overseas tourists who are keen to take home a piece of truly British / Scottish memorabilia – the Coronation range, London Red Bus and London England, and Scottish Saltire Scottish Flag collections.

This year’s media exposure of great British events has turbocharged tourism for the UK making London one of the most desirable places to visit in the world. It’s anticipated that the UK will see an extra 4.5 million visitors in the next few years leading to around £2bn in extra spending.*

Made right here in Britain, House of Dorchester’s latest collections provide the perfect opportunity to promote the premium chocolatier’s ‘Home of great British chocolate’ credentials.
