Cadbury World Heritage Weekend

PAST EVENT - Walk through the history of the nation’s favourite chocolate, 1-2 March, 2014

Visitors to Cadbury World’s Heritage Weekend from Saturday 1 – Sunday 2 March are invited to take part in a guided walk and discover where the sweet dream began.

Weather permitting, visitors will be able to stretch their legs as part of three special guided walks through Bournville village. The walks will showcase the history of the village which was home to the famous Cadbury brothers. During the scenic walk, those taking part will be told the story of the Cadbury family’s journey to build a factory which vastly improved the lives of those living in the area.

In addition to Cadbury World’s Heritage activities, visitors can explore the attraction itself where there is sure to be something to suit everyone. History lovers can learn even more in The Bournville Experience zone or step back in time onto a replica of Bull Street where the first shop was opened in 1824.

Throughout the year, Cadbury World is offering a series of specially themed activities and this Easter will be hosting an eggstra-special line-up of activities including an Easter Egg Trail and Easter bonnet competition.
