Charbonnel & Walker
Established in 1875, Charbonnel et Walker is Britain’s first luxury chocolatier. Encouraged by Edward VII, (then the Prince of Wales) Madame Charbonnel, known for making fine chocolates in Paris, was introduced to Mrs. Walker from London.
Mrs. Walker made the finest jewellery boxes, hat boxes and more. Together Mme Charbonnel and Mrs. Walker created Charbonnel et Walker. Beautiful chocolates presented in beautiful gift boxes. In 1970, the company was awarded the Royal Warrant to Queen Elizabeth II. A very special moment in the history of Charbonnel et Walker.
Our original shop opened at 173 New Bond Street in Mayfair and has remained on Bond Street ever since. It is housed in one of London’s most elegant arcades, the Royal Arcade on Old Bond Street.
