Jess Soothill's Great Family Days Out In & Around Worcester

Getting out and about with the children is ideal in order to experience new things together and to have lots of fun!

Family days out are such a fantastic place to make lifetime memories and to spend precious quality time together.
We love being together as a family of four, and since we moved to the area of Worcester we have been exploring it and finding things to do here. Everything from walks, to local attractions, to theme parks.
So if you are looking to visit or discover it further then here are our top 5 places to visit in Worcester for the family:

1/ Witley Court.

This English Heritage site is a great place for the children to explore and play, and learn about history too. With two play areas and lots of green areas to explore, it is perfect for all ages. The ruins of Witley Court are dramatic and the beautiful gardens and monumental fountains are breathtaking. Plus the woodland walks are perfect for children to explore and hide! There is a small shop, toilets and a café on site.

2/ West Midland Safari park.

With a safari park, theme park and the UK’s largest dinosaur animatronic attraction, this is one amazing day out for the family for all ages! At West Midland Safari Park see the rhinos, giraffes and lions from the safety of your car, and then head over the see the animatronic dinosaurs and ride the rides at the theme park! Although this is more of an expensive day out, there is lots to see and do and plenty of places to eat with great facilities.


3/ The Hive Library.

The Hive
opened in July 2012 and is the first of its kind in Europe. With lots of quiet areas and places to study it also has a superb children’s section, to read, play and explore. Children love reading and being read to, and this place will fuel their imagination. What’s great is that it is free to join or visit plus it is open at weekends. For more activities and what’s on for kids do visit their website.


4/ Severn Valley Railway.

Children love trains, especially riding on a steam train and so this experience is a must! In its 50th year as a tourist attraction Severn Valley Railway is a full-size standard-gauge railway line, running regular, mainly steam-hauled, passenger trains between Kidderminster in Worcestershire and Bridgnorth in Shropshire, a distance of approximately sixteen miles. Children will love the trains and the whole experience!

5/ Worcester Woods Country Park.

With free entry and two large play areas this is ideal for the children and to let them play and run around safely. It also has two nature reserves, a huge open field and a delicious cafe. Whether you are looking for birds, swings, coffee, flowers, footpaths or all of these and more, the Country Park is a great place to visit.
