Worcestershire

Stunning cathedrals, idyllic market towns, rare white lions and Britain's premier steam railway? It can only be Worcestershire.

 

The Commandery, close by, has exciting stories to tell you about power, greed, war, wealth, romance, death, society and industry. Step back in time to catch a glimpse of the lively characters that have inhabited this ancient building during the past seven centuries.

Situated in the heart of the picturesque Georgian town of Bewdley is Bewdley Museum. Set in a historic Butchers Shambles, fascinating displays give an insight into the trades and crafts of the Wyre Forest area.

Malvern HillsThe great outdoors is around every corner in Worcestershire, from the magnificent Malvern Hills and the Vale of Evesham to the Forest of Wyre. Enjoy a dollop of Worcestershire’s breathtaking scenery at Go Ape in the Wyre Forest. A smattering of tree-top wires, crossings and wind-in-your-face zip wires; finished off with a liberal dose of people in search of their inner Tarzan!

For a different perspective of the Malvern Hills, try out the Spy Mission Drive Trail. The Malvern Hills boast scenic views over both Herefordshire and Worcestershire. This circular driving Spy Mission Trail around the North Malvern Hills takes about 2.5 hours. Crack the clues to save Malvern’s famous water!

Voted best attraction in the Midlands by children and parents, West Midlands Safari Park offers a drive through safari including the world famous African White Lions.

Severn Valley Railway

In Bromsgrove, the Avoncroft Museum of Historic Buildings rescues and cares for historic buildings including an earth closet, windmill, interactive National Telephone Collection (including a TARDIS) and Britain's premier steam railway.

Don’t forget to jump on board a steam-hauled train on the Severn Valley Railway between Kidderminster and Bridgnorth.
