Two Birmingham attractions with a shared sweet connection are teaming up to offer visitors a tantalising taste of what is on offer in the city’s chocolate-box village.
Both attractions are steeped in history with Selly Manor Museum, which dates to 1474, saved from destruction and opened as a Museum by George Cadbury in 1906.
Whilst Cadbury World, one of the UK’s most popular family attractions, explores chocolate’s history and the origins and story of the Cadbury business.
The new offer will give visitors a whopping 30% off entry to Cadbury World when they visit Selly Manor Museum first, on the same day, Tuesday to Friday during term time.
Gillian Ellis, Heritage Manager at Selly Manor Museum, said: “We’re really pleased to be working with Cadbury World to offer visitors this fantastic opportunity.
“It’s a great way for visitors of all ages to explore everything that Bournville has to offer for less.
“Both attractions have a shared history, but this is the first time we’ve been able to offer visitors the chance to immerse themselves in both experiences.”
Diane Mitchell, Marketing Manager at Cadbury World, said: “‘The Cadbury story started in Bournville and with the Cadbury family having restored Selly Manor, it only seems right to partner up with our neighbours for a truly immersive heritage experience.”
Cadbury World is also offering visitors to the Cadbury Café 10% off the total price of a meal (minimum spend £5) with their Selly Manor Museum ticket.
There is free parking at Cadbury World and Selly Manor Museum is just a five to ten minute walk away through the attractive Bournville Village.

Now one of Birmingham’s top 50 attractions, Selly Manor was once a prosperous house until it fell into disrepair and was spotted by George Cadbury.
The chocolate-maker had it taken down piece-by-piece and moved to its current site where today it educates visitors and schools on how people lived 500 years ago.
The Museum is managed by charity Bournville Village Trust, which was also founded by George Cadbury.
