"Chocolate Heaven" Cadbury World Tip by DUNK67

Cadbury World, Birmingham: 10 reviews and 14 photos

Claire used to work in a chocolate and wants to start her own, I love chocolate so after months of talking about it we decided to take a trip to Cadburys World, this Tuesday 12th October 2004.

Cadburys World is the visitor centre of Cadburys Chocolates in Bourneville, Birmingham.

As you walk through the sliding doors you notice how modern it all looks compared to the factory buildings surrounding it. To your left there is a large reception desk, to your right a large restaurant and in front of you is the largest Cadburys Shop in the World.

As soon as you enter the exhibit you are each given two bars of chocolate free.

You start off by walking through a Mayan jungle and learn about how they and the Aztecs used Cocoa beans as a currency.

From there you see a bit of a hologram show about the history of chocolate and how it came to Great Britain.

You then enter a small courtyard scene with a facade of a Chocolate House and some shops and listen to a short story before entering a theatre to hear how the Cadbury family started manufacturing chocolate.

From there you move into another theatre, this is the closet thing in this country that I have seen to the way they do things in the theme parks in Florida. This theatre shows you how the chocolate is processed. Beware though, if you have any back conditions sit on the back row or stand.

Once you have watched the film the door opens to a room with 4 or 5 computer terminals where you can watch how the various chocolate bars are made and packaged.

Adult £9.00
