The West Midlands' most-visited attraction - Cadbury World - successfully incorporates manufacturing processes with a host of child... more » and family-friendly attractions to create one of England's top 25 tourist sites, and thinktank the science museum aimed at young people, makes a virtue of celebrating medical and scientific advances that originate in the city.
The Cadbury family's ambitious plans to build their Victorian chocolate factory and model village for workers on the greenfield site to the south that became known as Bournville, means that Cadbury World is about four miles from the city centre, so you will need transport - public or otherwise - to explore this route. This is a sprawling city, and Millennium Point where thinktank is situated is also well over a mile from the Sea Life centre and the BBC at The Mailbox (which are a relatively short distance from each other), so even within the central area it's unlikely that little legs will want to walk.
Because of this it will take a day to visit these attractions - but the variety of experiences on offer - from all things chocolate, to trying your hand at a bit of CSI at thinktank, encountering the ultimate alien baddie at the BBC and marvelling at sharks, should mean that there's something for everyone. less «
