Cadbury World - Review
Ever wondered what it would be like to live in a world of chocolate? Well, head on down to Cadbury World in Birmingham and you’ll find out for yourself! Essentially a self-guided tour, visitors can enjoy the Cadbury story through exciting animatronics, video presentations, multi-sensory cinema, interactive displays, staff demonstrations and much more. Maintained by the famous Cadbury chocolate company itself, this place takes you on a delicious trip to explore and discover Cadbury’s tasty history.
The Birmingham Cadbury world is one of only two such attractions in the entire world, and it opens its doors to over 500,000 visitors every year. It is divided into 14 zones, all of which are highly enthralling experiences for the entire family.
With almost 200 years of heritage, each zone tells the visitors about a particular type of chocolate or an important aspect of the company, with exhilarating attractions like the ‘Aztec Jungle’, ‘Chocolate Adventure’, and the ‘World’s Biggest Cadbury Shop’.
Discover how the famous Cadbury chocolates are made in the demonstration area, where the Cadbury chocolatiers exhibit their extraordinary skills on hand made exclusive items only available at Cadbury World. For all die hard chocolate lovers, this is the one thing you cannot miss.
Head on to the ‘Making Chocolate’ zone to find out how Cadbury uses their ingredients to acquire that signature taste which everyone enjoys. If you’re lucky, you may even get to try your hand at making the chocolate yourself!
Don’t forget to check out ‘The Bournville Experience’, one of Cadbury World’s most well-known zones. Here, you can find out everything that goes into the making of the iconic Bournville chocolate bar. You can also try your luck at designing the packaging yourself.
Before you leave Cadbury World, don’t forget to pick up lots of chocolates and Cadbury merchandise for the irresistible gift store. If you’re really a true chocoholic, you can ever personalize your own Cadbury bar to top up a day you’ll never forget! Also, visit the popular attractions in the city by following Birmingham itinerary 1 day.

Cadbury World, Birmingham Reviews
We had such a fun day out at Cadbury World. Every part of the tour was interesting and interactive. The 4D experience was a laugh too. We went in with a group of comp children and they made the experience hilarious. We also booked the Cadbury afternoon tea which was delicious. Very filling so we had to take some away with us in boxes. We spent 4 hours in Cadbury World in total and definitely got our moneys worth. Also bought some lovely gifts in the shop.
Really interesting tour. You can learn a lot about the origins of the chocolate industry. Tons of free chocolate on the tour itself (Go on the tour before buying more chocolate in their shop) The tour is very busy. There are a lot of people allowed in to each section at the same time. If you are socially anxious beware. There is a large Cafe here where you it's possible to get hot and cold meals. I highly recommend the hazelnut frappe. It was excellent. All in all, quite a good day out.
Great place to visit to learn the history of Cadbury’s chocolates and many more. Love the setting they had inside the factory but think they could of had a bit more attractions, felt like the tour was too short. Also the ticket price ain’t too cheap either but other then that it’s a good day out. Enjoyed the chocolate tasting and the free chocolate hand outs.
Enjoyed the visit. It was unclear as to what was involved in the tour. Took a punt on late entry and actually enjoyed it. Our 3 children would have been more engaged if we could have seen the factory itself and the machinery/processes involved in making chocolate as opposed to hearing about it through video presentations. That said the tour was surprising for them with the interactive elements. They enjoyed being given lots of chocolate along the way too!!
Wonderful place for a day out with kids. The staff were very welcoming and greatly supportive of our requests. Cafe option is great. Queues were well managed and waiting times were efficiently utilised for demonstrating interesting stuff. Will come back again
