Cadbury World information
The next best thing to Willy Wonka's Chocolate Factory, Cadbury World is about 4 miles south of Birmingham in the village of Bournville. It aims to educate visitors about the history of cocoa and the Cadbury family, but sweetens the deal with free samples, displays of chocolate-making machines, and chocolate-themed rides. Surrounding the chocolate works, pretty Bournville Village was built by the philanthropic Cadbury family to accommodate early 20th-century factory workers. Opening hours vary through the year; bookings are essential in July and August. Trains run to Bournville from Birmingham New St Station.
