  • Had a great day at Cadbury World. There was plenty on offer to entertain kids and adults alike. We went on a quiet day, which meant there was plenty of parking and no queuing at all - there is a large overflow car park for busy days. Tour was interactive and interesting - although there were large areas of the factory sections empty and unmanned (we were notified beforehand). Had afternoon tea which was great & there was also a good 4D ride included in the ticket price! All in all a great day and good value in comparison to a lot of days out as a family.
  • I absolutely loved my visit to the Cadbury World!! So exciting to see all the chocolate and to learn the history of the chocolate factory I grew up with. I do wish we were able to actually see the entire process as the line production wasn't working that day. The chocolate store was just awesome and so mind boggling crazy!!
  • I was here today with my elderly parents and my sister. The service on arrival was outstanding. The staff were very observant in offering a wheelchair for my dad and making us aware of various parts of the tour that may be a struggle for him. All staff around the tour were really helpful with organising the lift ready for us to go up and down levels. As well as entry points to and from the venues. The tour was fascinating and none of us had ever been before, so we all loved it. Our expectations were smashed with the 4D cinema and hologram displays. Amazing! For 4 grown adults to be so amazed, my sister and I are definitely coming back with her children too. What a fantastic day out!
  • was going well until it got to the point where they hand out the chocolate bars... guess what... they ran out of chocolate!!!! but not because they hadn't made any, but because the delivery from Poland hadn't come in!!! Couldn't believe my ears!! Unbelievable not even half the chocolate is made in Birmingham!! its all just for show!! truly shocked! if you want to go along for the whole fake experience go for it, but I cant recommend!
  • Awesome experience with the kids. They just loved it and the adults enjoyed too, what with the free chocolates and amazing tour. The 3D show was great and children had a park to play. Set up in a nice place, its definitely worth the value of your money. Book your tickets in advance for online discount.
