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!

Cadbury World Information

  • Cadbury World has rides for the children, but there are often long lines for the rides as well.

  • Had a lovely time with our 10 year old and 4 year old. Well impressed. Shame you don’t get to see the production line working but it didn’t matter so much. You get free chocolate all the way round the tour and the shop is well priced. Great day out. :-)

  • I went here for the 1st time with my 2 boys aged 10 and 12 recently and my partner and we all loved it! It's great for all ages and a lot of time and thought has gone into Cadbury World. We spent about 4.5 hours here and we would definitely come back again. The shop prices were also very reasonable with some great offers!

  • I remember going here years ago and loved it. Unfortunately, I can't say the same anymore. The first half of the tour hasn't changed or been updated in 20 years, it's the same as when I went with school! Then the second half, the production and packing plant have been shut down and boarded up. So we didn't get to see all of the chocolate bars moving along the conveyor belts like we used to. Yet it was more expensive than it used to be! To top it off, we tried to go on the park round the back to extend our day but it was closed due to bad weather. Only there wasn't bad weather, it had rained the night before and there was a little surface water on parts. Give me a mop and I'd have sorted it for them. Instead they just locked the gates. Lastly we tried the 4D cinema. It was probably the best part of the day but unfortunately only lasted about 5 minutes and you could only go once. I certainly won't be coming back any time soon if at all. It's a shame as I used to like this place.

  • Waste of time. Came here years ago and it was informative and will put together. Since then, everything worth seeing (the operating factory) has shifted to other buildings and all that is left is a succession of queues for rides or opportunities to get you to pose for pictures you can then buy. Kids were desperately unimpressed. The only reason this isn't one star is the guy doing the chocolate making demonstrations appears to genuinely love his job and life!

  • Fantastic place for adults and kids. Lovely shop full of treats. A longer wait in the cafe, could do with a better system or more staff. In the whole kids will love the chocolate, the fantastic ride in the fantasy world and all the extras.
