GodivaBelgium's finest export, the first Godiva was opened in Brussels approximately 75 years ago by master chocolatier Joseph Draps and named after the legendary Lady Godiva. The Draps family set the chocolate world alight with their unique formula of rich yet remarkably smooth chocolate. There are now eight branches of this shop in London alone.

These are Belgian chocolates at their best - a chocaholic's heaven.
