Situated in the heart of England, Worcestershire lies between the majestic Malvern Hills and Broadway known as the 'Jewel of the Cotswolds'. With a population of under 600,000, Worcestershire has plenty of fun activities to offer families. From exploring National Trust Worcestershire to the Worcestershire Wildlife Trust, the northern gateway to the Cotswolds is worth a trip.
When in Worcestershire a visit to Broadway Tower, the Cotsworld's highest tower, is a must. Sitting within a 50-acre estate of parkland, this piece of architecture is steeped in history. If other historic buildings tickle your fancy, check out Worcestershire Cathedral, which was built in 1084.
Another Worcestershire staple is Witley Court and Gardens, home to beautiful greenery, country houses and enchanting woodland to explore. Malvern Hills is also excellent for reconnecting with nature, especially for those who love walking and exploring - don't miss out on Worcestershire Beacon for the full experience.
West Midlands Safari Park is fantastic for the kids, holding over 165 species of exotic animals and a small theme-park. For history fanatics, Avoncroft Museum of Historic Buildings is a fun way to discover more about the 30 historic buildings and structures that have been restored across rural Worcestershire, and beyond.
Be sure to check out the fantastic food that Worcestershire's local restaurants, pubs and eateries are serving. You can sample anything from local produce at markets, to pub grub, pizza and more.
