​can I ask why? was looking to book a few days away
Any recommendations on these actual places please.
Does it include a factory tour where the chocolate is made in Poland?
Please dont go! Really run down, litterally seeing a small part of the working factory which isnt very interesting, the rest of the place hasnt changed and was exactky the same as when i went with school. Can tell that they arent investing any money into the place and its a real shame as it Could be great. Please avoid to save on disappointment!!!!

​Let's put it this way,you won't need a golden ticket !
went 2 year ago and our kids enjoyed it. from the viewpoint of an adult, it's not that great but kids still enjoy it and they get free chocolate.
Yea i have to agree with the above comments , its like looking around Iraq on a bad day ...... save your money and go elsewhere

i went about 17 years ago and it was great,loads of free sweets,huge factory tour with a guide,it was really good full day out,One of the people i went with visited with there kids a couple of years back and hardly got any gifts on the way round and the tour was a couple of rooms with chocolate pouring into a bowl and no workers about.
its such a shame that what happened to cadbury was allowed to happen because its an icon imo
It has also been something I was thinking of doing with the kids but based on the comments I think I will now give this a miss.
Good deal but awful attraction, save your money!
We live about an hour or so east of Solihull/ Cadbury and so our three kids regularly end up on school trips there. Dont expect "Alton Towers", "Lego land" or "Chessington" type place. Pretty average place to visit in my overall opinion (kids think its just OK) and the amount of "free chocolate" you get on the tour and afterwards, doesnt justify the price tag normally. But for this price though, its a good deal with the hotel and easy enough from Solihull to catch a bus, train or drive into Brum city centre for the day. I lived in Solihull for a while (whilst at Uni in Birmingham), which is a typical overpriced (posh) place to visit, nothing exciting there, but you could use it as a base to visit places south/ South east like Stratford or Warwick, which are "nice" towns for a bit of gentler culture for the adults. Warwick castle is fun if you can get a discount voucher (run by the same group who run Alton Towers).
Should this be moved to Deals/Travel ?
Agree that Cadbury World is a disappointment. When we went it was a bit of a crush waiting to enter in our timeslot. The corridors charting the history of the factory was too narrow and we got pushed along unable to read everything. The main factory was just miles (or so it seemed) of white corridors with very little going on. Most factory machines weren't in operation and the few that were had an occasional box being carried along. Hardly exciting. There was a small child's ride but the queue was huge and kept breaking down.
Yes there was a bit of chocolate handed out at several station points, but we're talking about half a dozen or so individual bars, not carrier bag quantities.
Outside of the main factory experience there was a small kids play area, a climbing wall which cost extra and a 3D cinema experience. The cinema was really good and we went in there early. Glad we did as later in the day the queue was massive and the waiting kids were all really restless.
Better go to Drayton Manor.
I normally don't write reviews. But this dayout gave me so much frustration and i decided to write one. When we arrived we did not know what to do and where to go. Arrived at 10am but given a time slot at 3pm. You have to book a time slot for a tour which does not taken even 2hrs. So we had our snacks and We saw a person calling for kids about the Magic show entertainment trying hard not to make adults and kids bored.
In the tour they have 2 large screens which shows history of Cadubury family, and how the chocolate is made. Basically you-tube videos. They make you wait and ask you take pictures with a nice looking young lady dressed up in victorian days, don't know the connection. In the tour which is boring you will see they is a Face Painting lady to drag your day and kids obviously attracted which costs a fiver per kid. What is the need for face painting in the middle of tour. Then behind the glass windows a robot machine packing chocolates into boxes, this is maximum you can see a factory. Then the worst ever family photo session with certain backgrounds costs 15 pounds. At the end one lady showing chocolate carving on a table. Thats it. Worst day out of my life. Costs 45 pounds for family of 4 and high cost of finger food. They attraction should be banned in order to save peoples hard earned money.

Snap.
Have to agree, its the dullest day out you can imagine. 14 zones apparently - well, my living room has 14 zones if you divide it up small enough (TV zone, coffee cup resting zone, dust collection zone etc).
Solihull is lovely though, and you can get to ThinkTank in Birmingham in a flash on the train, or many other attractions that may actually keep your kids busy for an hour or two!!
Its Rubbish Save your Money. The UK never should have sold Cadbury
I live not far away and heard it's ****!
Our family visited recently and had a very enjoyable day. Our daughter is in a wheelchair...access was brilliant, a specially adapted car is available on the cadabra ride and the staff couldnt have been more helpful. I wouldnt say its a day out but certainly a nice morning or afternoon trip. Only complaint was that the wheelchair accessible outside play area was a small consisting of 2 decked areas joined by a bridge. Not very exciting.
I booked this few weeks ago off a living social deal, wish i had of waited now as this cheaper
