Cadbury World consists of 14 zones, the first one being the Aztec jungle where we were introduced to the cocoa tree, the Aztec Emperor Montezuma and the Spanish conquistador Hernán Cortés.
Next up was Bull Street, a full-scale replica of the original street where John Cadbury opened his shop in 1824. Here a video image of "John Cadbury" introduced us to the next zone, "The Cadbury Story", which took place in small theatre. Video images of John Cadbury and his sons told their fascinating story and it was really interesting, so I hope I'm not going to bore you by retelling it!
Finally when leaving the Cadbury World building and following some other tourists we found the next zone of the tour - "The Bournville Experience" - tucked away behind the main building. "The Bournville Experience" was an interactive exhibition about how the village was created and you could design your own village, too.
So the next time you're in Birmingham, go visit Cadbury World, but make sure to book your tickets in advance. Visit their website for further information.
