The Severn Valley Railway is one of the best ways to see the stunning countryside and the steam train will delight budding Thomas fans.
The city of Worcester is steeped in history and the River Severn runs right through its heart overlooked by the 12th century Worcester Cathedral. For rambling The Malvern Hills offer some of the best walks in the UK with its mini mountain range (not for the faint hearted).
There are plenty of parks to explore like Witley Court, an English Heritage site ideal for taking a step back in time and enjoying a family picnic on the lawn. If you are looking for animal experiences, Rays Farm is a small family-run business offering close encounters with many different animals. For a larger experience visit West Midlands Safari Park which offers a drive through experience as well as rides for older children and a Cubs Kingdom for the littlies.
