Owner description: Uncover a world of chocolate delights and enjoy a fascinating, fun-packed day out at Cadbury World. 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. Cadbury World is located in the grounds of the original Cadbury factory, but isn't a tour of the factory itself. Instead, you'll discover the history, the making and the magic of Cadbury confectionery as you journey through our chocolatey zones.

I visited Cadbury World with my partner and despite worrying about it being for the kids it was actually fun for all ages. Don't be fooled it's not Charlie and the Chocolate Factory but is very exciting to walk round and see how chocolate came to England and how it was made then and now. It takes about 90 - 120 minutes to get round but there are lots of exciting things to do along to the way - See how chocolate is made, how it's packaged, hear about the Cadbury / Bournville family, watch old adverts, have your photo taken in different chocolate settings, go on a ride with the coco beans, and of course get free chocolate samples. There's a cafe and a shop at the end which is a must for the token Cadbury mug and large bars of chocolate.

If you have the chance take a walk in to Bournville (2 mins away on foot) as it's very picturesque!

Bit disappointed as no chocolate river. Could be more entertaining. Did like the free chocolate though

I visited here with my mum and little sister as we all like the Charlie and the chocolate factory movies, we were expecting this to be kind of like this, we were quite wrong on this.
The start of the 'experience' is a walk through the amazon that is extremely dark, my sister is massively afraid of the dark and wanted to get to the next area, they wouldn't let her as she needs to find out the history of chocolate making.
After this short section it was into the section where 'everyone' as the sign states can have a green screen photo taken, this wasn't the case with my sister as she is in her wheelchair as they said to do this she is to be stood up, this is understandable in some cases but one involved sitting in a bath of chocolate except the fact you had to stand for the photo.
The final part of the tour is in the factory section, this is all upstairs with apparently no lifts so this was a no go for my sister, in here people were expecting to see chocolate being made except it was just chocolate being packed into boxes ready for shipping.
There was a free chocolate tasting area where you got a pot which is about the same size as a shot glass with melted chocolate and then that's it for the tasting although it was very nice.
The highlight of the day for me was strangely not the chocolate but was my find in the car park.
As a big car nut I loved how there was a jaguar e type and an wrist atom supercar in the car park.

Really enjoyed it here, staff very friendly and helpful especially in the café. A lad called Reece in the café was particularly kind and helpful.
They had a scalectrix set up for fathers day but the guys running it were really grumpy (they were not part of Cadburys staff) my little boy waited patiently to have a go and when he got a chance, the grumpy guys said they were shutting it for a 10 minute break!!!
My children are 2 and 4 so were a bit to young to appreciate the history of Cadburys, but they loved the ride on cars going through the cocoa bean world , but it was me that really wanted to go...Really enjoyed it.

we went to cadbury world for my grandaughters birthday it was ok! parking and booking time entrance was good plenty of chocolate handed out but the children did become a little bored there needs to be more interaction with little ones. There are things for them to do but it needs to be almost disneyfied to make it a bit like `Willie wonkers chocolate factory` abit more magical.
