Cadbury World offers self-guided tours through the history of chocolate and the origins of one of the world’s largest confectionery manufacturers. Opened in 1990, this site is one of the city’s largest attractions, welcoming over half a million visitors each year. No ordinary factory tour, the location features 14 zones narrating the story of chocolate and the Cadbury business through static displays, animatronics, video presentations, multisensory demonstrations, and interactive exhibits. Don’t miss the popular "essence" zone, where you can create your own confectionery concoction in a tub of liquid chocolate. This indoor attraction allows a limited number of visitors each day, so be sure to pre-book your tickets online to guarantee entry. With our custom trip planner, Birmingham attractions like Cadbury World can be center stage of your vacation plans, and you can find out about other attractions like it, unlike it, near it, and miles away.

  • A good day out a couple of areas were not working on the tour to start with but were OK later. The children really loved it. The 4D cinema show could have been a little longer. Overall an enjoyable da...  read more »
  • My youngest child(4) enjoyed it alot but my older two found it quite boring after 20mins. So if your thinking of going here it's best with children under 11 or 10 in my opinion. 
  • The worst tour I've ever been to. To start with they give you 4 chocolates straight away. You usually only get 3 but they give us 4 because production line was closed. They didn't even give you a bag ...  read more »
  • Great place for a day out in Birmingham. The exhibition is full of variety and great for learning about chocolate and the work of George Cadbury in transforming bournville. The cafe is a little expensive and the staff seemed panicked and rushed. The chocolate in the shop is more expensive than in your local supermarket
  • Today we went to cadburys world and we had a good day the ques was quite short and the tours was good... But however when we visited the gift shop we was expecting more of a selection of different chocolates that are not on the shelfs in supermarkets such as Morrisons or asda or even your corner shop the prices would still be cheaper in a supermarket also, - I think a wider selection of past chocolate would have been a really nice touch and added to that experience of cadburys world!
  • OK seems like people love or hate this place. Well it's OK but not great. Entrance fee is a bit steep. Not much in the way of rides but I didn't expect that. Would have liked to actually see the chocolate being made and you don't. Just the packaging department and even that wasn't running whilst we walked through. Problem with this place is its not clear what it's supposed to be? Museum? Themepark? Promotional? probably won't return would have preferred a more factory tour experience.
  • Interesting outlet shop although only about 20% of it is a genuine outlet priced piece of chocolate. The tour is interesting but will only entertain you for a couple of hours. Kids will enjoy the playground but you will need to hope the weather is good as it is predominantly outdoors. Pricing is reasonable as they recognise this is not an all day attraction. A recommended visit but temper your expectations - it's not Disneyland!
  • If you are into Cadbury chocolate, the evolution of industrial automation and / or queuing then this is the place for you. Tour is entertaining enough and the gift shop is impressive. Probably wouldn't travel specifically for this but if in the area with spare cash and nothing else on then give it a go. Just don't bother queuing for the car ride in the factory as we spent an hour waiting for a 5 minute (at most) jaunt.
