Attractions

There’s so much to see and do in Worcestershire. You can explore the great outdoors, shop ‘til you drop and enjoy a whole host of family-orientated fun. Take a trip to the theatre or sample the delights of its many local restaurants and cafes. Show your support for rugby, basketball, motorsports and cricket. Watch a boat race, spend a day at the races or go golfing, fishing, swimming, climbing or horse riding. The choice is yours…

 

 

Family Fun

There’s a huge selection of animal parks, farm parks and a zoo for the whole family to enjoy near Swallowfields, including the West Midlands Safari Park. Or why not visit the home of the nation’s favourite farmer, Adam Henson, at his Cotswold Farm Park where you can meet the rare breed animals, take a tractor ride or have fun on the bouncy pillows. Swing around in the trees at Go Ape or take a journey on Britain’s premier Severn Valley Railway attraction, which provides some of the best riverside views in the country. Head to nearby Eastnor Castle or take a boat cruise along the River Severn and, if you’re feeling creative, then take a trip to Eastnor pottery.

 

History and Heritage

Worcestershire is a great place to step back in time to a bygone era and cherish the delights of yesteryear. There’s a wide range of historic houses, including Elgar’s Birthplace, Croome Park, Whitley Court and Worcester Cathedral. There are also various historic sites and museums to explore across the county, ranging from the Morgan Motor Company, Avoncroft Museum, and the gas lamps in Malvern, which are said to have inspired the opening line in The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe. And if you fancy a little tipple, then make sure you check out Lovells Vineyard, Westons Cider and The Chase Distillery.

 

The Great Outdoors

You may enjoy adrenalin-pumping pursuits, such as mountain biking or hiking on the Malverns or in the Forest of Dean or a relaxed walk around the Malvern Commons. Whatever you fancy, there are all sorts of places to walk – such as Worcestershire’s Coronation Meadow right here in Castlemorton – cycle and keep the kids (and adults!) entertained with the many attractions near us, many of which are free! You’ll find fishing spots and a variety of National Trust properties, parks, nature reserves, as well as Britain’s longest river.
