Choc-a-block at Cadbury
Who can refuse over an hours’ worth of chocolate sampling? Cadbury World, just 750 metres from your front door, is the ideal place for chocoholics young and old.
There are three tour length options, but the whole hog is your best bet. The 75-minute 'Full Tour' offers ultimate bang for buck with endless opportunities to sample, smell and see all of your favourite Cadbury chocolates as they’re being made.
