Birmingham is the birthplace of beloved chocolate brand Cadburys, which began production here way back in 1824.
What’s more, Roald Dahl’s ‘Charlie & the Chocolate Factory’ was inspired by this very factory during his time at Repton School, where he and his classmates were the very willing testers for a number of Cadbury’s latest chocolate inventions.
