There are gardens, museums, unusual places of interest, farm parks, even a safari park. Worcestershire offers a variety of attractions, all year round, for all ages.
There are a number of curious buildings and follies for you to visit. The Broadway Tower being one of the most spectacular and the Avoncroft Museum will give you an interesting insight into the county’s historic buildings.
Many of the larger houses open to the public have extensive and fascinating gardens, often having been tended for generations.
For gardeners of all types, they are a source of inspiration and wonder. Burford House Gardens near Tenbury Wells is particularly delightful. The attractions themselves are becoming major tourist attractions – like farm parks, some specifically designed for children.
Away from the farmyard, you will find wildlife sanctuaries protecting the once common species, usually found in the wilds of Worcestershire. At the West Midlands Safari Park (www.wmsp.co.uk), near Bewdley, the fauna of much hotter and wilder climes have made a home. It makes an unforgettable visit for children of all ages.
