Delight someone special with Walk & Mint, a unique gift set created in partnership with SEE Southampton.
Our ‘Walk & Mint’ set includes:
- A ‘Hidden History’ tour ticket: a 1.5 hour guided walking tour of Southampton
- Our heavenly Mint Chocolate Magic Circles chocolates (though we advise not to consume the chocolates while on tour!)
- A pack of 4 Southampton illustrated coasters
The Hidden History walking tour by SEE Southampton is typically 1.5 hour long and takes you through Southampton’s past…filled with more secrets than you ever imagined! You will explore the city’s Medieval Vaults, the D-Day Wall, Medieval Quarter, the Western Walls, St Michael’s church and more. The Mayflower and the Speedwell departed from Southampton 400 years ago, therefore the stories around the Pilgrim Fathers are also included in the tour. SEE Southampton guides are accredited members of The Institute of Tourist Guiding, Tourism South East and received the Highly Commended Award for Excellence by The Beautiful South.
The guided walking tour by SEE Southampton departs weekly from The Bargate. Tickets issued as part of this gift set are valid through to Dec 2021 and can be redeemed directly with the operator. Details will be sent to you after purchase.
Our (vegan-friendly) Dark Chocolate Magic Circles are intense yet delicately infused with locally sourced peppermint and created the artisan way in the New Forest. The peppermint taste ‘develops’ on your palate like a Polaroid, with the dark chocolate firmly in focus. Our ethically sourced chocolate supports cocoa growing communities as part of the Cocoa Horizons programme. Did you know? peppermint is a hybrid between watermint and spearmint, with 94% of the world’s production coming from Morocco. But we have our own English production in Hampshire, at Summerdown Farm!

Keeping with the local theme, a set of 4 coasters is included in our Walk & Mint gift set. Designs include The Bargate, The Cowherds pub, The Old Bowling Green and The Mayflower & Speedwell, all from original illustrations by local artist Aaron Jay. These are humorous illustrations and the underside of each coaster features a snippet of history. View our coasters here.
