3. Cadbury World; Early Bird

As ever, the best chance to get ahead of the queues at Cadbury World, is to ensure you arrive in good time. Guests with vouchers will need to join the standard line at the main reception where queues can quickly form.

Regardless of whether you have pre-booked your visit or not, you will probably still experience queues for the main exhibition tour, (timed ticketed slots).  With 80 time slots being allocated for every 10 minutes, the queues build quickly. At peak times, it is wise to arrive by 10am to avoid lengthy queues with the busiest times being between 11am & 3pm.

4. E-Tickets at Cadbury World

Cadbury World now offers an e-tickets system when booking online.  This does hold the added attraction of bypassing the initial reception desk queue as you arrive.  With an e-ticket, you will have already pre-booked your tour & can take your pre-printed ticket directly to the main exhibition tour/shows etc.

5. Cadbury World; Choose Wisely

You’ll not be surprised to learn that Cadbury World tends to draw crowds during school holidays, particularly half term holidays, where Cadbury World can be catering for around 3000 visitors a day! If you have flexibility on when you visit then avoid particularly busy times.  During term time, try an afternoon visit, that can be distinctly quieter as the school parties begin to depart for the day.  Look out for off-peak promotions too that combines cheap tickets with a quieter experience.

6. Cadbury World; Cadabra Tour & Queue Times

The Cadabra Tour is primarily a visual tour, within a carriage, aimed at families with pre-school children.  Queues can quickly build for this ride & older visitors may wish to bypass this experience by moving directly to the demonstration area.  Look out for signs along the route that offers this detour.

7. Cadbury World; Ahead of the Queues

By completing the main exhibition tour early on during your visit, you’ll quickly find you are ahead of the queues when accessing later attractions within the setting.  Making your way straight to other popular queue attractions within the setting whilst queues are low.

8. Cadbury World; Take Water!

As you move around the attraction, there will be a limited number of free samples of chocolate on offer that will quickly have children asking for a drink.  Worth having a bottle of water with you to avoid hidden expenses.

    Good afternoon ,

    I am planning to visit your attraction but due to the distance I have to travel I am worried about what time slot to book and what if I miss my slot??
    On average how much time would you recommend to allow to see all that is to see and do?!

    • Hi David, topdogdays is independent of Cadbury World so you would be perhaps best placed to contact Cadbury World directly with your query on I would imagine that if you miss your time slot you would be able to join the queue but worth double checking with Cadbury World. Cadbury World is a popular attraction so on busy days you can spend considerable time queuing to enter attractions so you are probably looking at a full day out if you plan to explore all aspects of the setting. Enjoy your visit, Liz
