Cadbury World named Midlands’ top accessible venue

Disabled access guide hails Birmingham tourist attraction.

Birmingham’s Cadbury World has been named Midlands’ Venue of the Year by disabled access charity Euan’s Guide.

The family-friendly attraction’s staff impressed voters. The Cadbury World team were noted as being “incredibly helpful” and “made the experience stress free”. The venue has good accessibility and also benefits from having a Changing Places toilet in addition to their accessible toilets. The additional equipment provided in the Changing Places toilet, including a hoist and an adult sized changing bench, gives so many more people the chance to enjoy a great day out.

Euan MacDonald, Co-Founder of Euan’s Guide said: “Staff can have a tremendous impact on someone’s visit, and it is great to know that so many people have had a great experience at Cadbury World thanks to their staff. We’re delighted to recognise a venue that ensures everyone feels welcome by providing a Changing Places toilet in addition to their other accessible features.”

Gerrard Baldwin (pictured), General Manager at Cadbury World, commented on their award win saying: “We strive to offer an inclusive experience for everybody at Cadbury World, and want to create lasting memories of a wonderful day out for all of our visitors. Our aim is to be as inclusive as possible, so we are delighted to be named as the winner of the Midlands’ Venue of the Year by Euan’s Guide.”

Disabled people nominated hundreds of venues for the awards. Eight regional winners were selected who each provide an outstanding welcome for disabled visitors.

Disabled access information can often be hard to find which is why disabled people use the disabled access review website to share their own experiences and find new places to visit that have been recommended by other people. The website holds thousands of reviews for all types of places making it easier for people to find great accessible places to go.
