Cadbury World offers self-guided tours through the history of chocolate and the origins of one of the world’s largest confectionery manufacturers.

  • This place is worth a visit. It's not too expensive and easy to get to by car or train. There is not loads to do here and I wouldn't expect it to fill more than a few hours. Friendly staff, nice cafe, free chocolate. A nice addition to a day out in the area.
  • We love this place but the factory is never working which is disappointing. We waited for ages for our picture to be done and then walked upstairs and around the building to come back down and be where the photo was taken again for no reason. The women giving out the chocolate at the beginning was so grumpy, we saw her again when we came out at the tills with her arms crossed picking at her nails. We will be back because it's interesting and fun for the kids.
  • No factory sections were on display. It felt like you were shuffled from one queue to another. Staff friendly, 4d adventure was very good. A reasonable amount of chocolate is included in the price. We had 2 for 1 vouchers and I would say it was acceptable value. Full price and you would feel robbed.
  • Their website looks good and suggests plenty to do but actually there's not that much. I was expecting being able to see how chocolate is made, produced etc but all me and my kids saw was a 2minute demonstration. Kids don't even get a chance to do anything with chocolate themselves. A bit of a spending trap - as soon as you walk in they try to get you to buy their bags for sweets, then it's face paint and two occasions to take and pay for photographs. 4d cinema was really good. I won't be coming back though. Oh and most of the factory was boarded up and what you could see was not in use - they could at least put the machines on for a show.
  • Ah ha.. chocolate factory it is. Nice and simple tour of the chocolate making. Free samples given upon entering and at the end of the tour. Huge varieties of chocolates though not all of them taste great. Stick to Toblerones and you are golden.. 😁😁
