Owner description: There's so much to see and do for the whole family. From learning how your favourite confectionery is made and uncovering the fascinating story of Cadbury chocolate, to playing in chocolate rain and adding your favourite treat to a delicious pot of warm liquid Cadbury Dairy Milk. You'll discover the origins of the cocoa bean amidst trees and waterfalls in the Aztec Jungle, before jumping on board the magical Cadabra ride and visiting the brand new 4D Chocolate Adventure zone, a 4D cinema experience featuring Cadbury's most popular characters. A visit to Cadbury World is not a factory tour. You'll discover the history, the making and the magic of Cadbury confectionery and experience the sights, smells and tastes of the place where chocolate really comes to life. With fourteen amazing zones, there's something for everyone!

“Great family day out”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 22, 2012

we visited in September as a birthday surprise for my 11 year old son, we also took our 20 month daughter.
Our son was so excited when we arrived and realised where he was going to spend his birthday.
The queue was long when we arrived as it opened but seemed to go down pretty quickly. We had some vouchers 2 for 1 which we used no problems. We had to choose what time we wanted to go round the exhibition but was able to explore the rest of Cadbury world until our time came. We had the opportunity to have a photo with some choco beans which made a lovely photo. There was a play area outside which both of the children had lots of fun on with plenty of picnic tables to relax while children are playing or to have your dinner. There is a small food shack outside that you can get ice creams and some hot food. We took our own food and drink so couldn't comment on the prices.
On the exhibit we found it very interesting with both children having lots of fun,
there was lots of free chocolate as you go round, which is what you would hope for. We wrote our name in chocolate, went on a car ride through a history of chocolate and we seen how chocolate was made. The smell as you go through the factory was gorgeous. In the exhibit there was things for the children to interact with playing games which was chocolate themed of course.
Near the play ground there was essence where you watched a short video showing you how dairy milk was discovered. You are then taken through to more chocolate to taste. You have some liquidized chocolate and can chose to fill it with shortcake, chocolate buttons, rice crispies, marshmallows or you could just have it on it's own.
We had a great fun, family day out and would recommend it.

“Designed for families”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 22, 2012 via mobile

Does educate you on Cadbury chocolates, and how it all came to be, but doesn't go too deep as it is more for the kids, good one to tick off the list if your into chocolate

“Interesting local and social history attraction.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 22, 2012 via mobile

Better than expected, travel through the history of Cadbury's chocolate company from its humble beginnings through to the multi national company it is today.
Lots of free samples of chocolate - full size bars!
You need to ring and book your arrival time as it can get very congested at peak times.
There are lots of gardens and a play area to look around but not so great if it's raining!

“try for yourself!!!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 21, 2012

On listening to some of the reviews I wasn't looking forward to the trip but we were not disappointed. It was a well set up attraction with plenty of freebies!! and it was for all age groups ok it wasn't like Willy Wonkas Factory but it isn't meant to be! it was informative and good fun, the factory shop was cheaper than the shops aswell . Go and enjoy!

“Only for kids”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed November 20, 2012

Unless you are a chocolate freak or have kids with you, do not visit Cadbury World. The exhibits are mostly all aimed to children. And I prefer Swiss chocolate. We liked very much watching the machine fitting automatically chocolate packs onto a pallet.
The chocolate sold there is more expensive than in the supermarkets.
