IIf your hotel’s only nine miles from a chocolate factory, you have to go. On Cadbury World’s self-guided tour you’ll find out how some of Britain’s favourite treats are made. You can take a Willy Wonka-esque roller coaster trip at the 4D cinema, drink liquid chocolate and play on interactive games. And don’t forget to pick up a little something from the enormous shop to take home.
Medieval Warwick Castle, 25 minutes’ drive from the hotel, is a must for a family day out near Birmingham. Scale the battlements, descend to the dungeon or wander through a riverside garden landscaped by Capability Brown. Costumed actors add to the fun while summer entertainment includes dramatic live jousting and the launch of a fireball from a huge replica catapult.
You can marvel at a huge collection of recently discovered Anglo-Saxon gold at Birmingham Museum and Art Gallery, 10 minutes' walk from Birmingham Moor Street station. The Staffordshire Hoard's weapons, jewellery and religious artefacts are on show alongside exhibits on Anglo-Saxon life. Children will relish the chance to dress up, and to discover how the precious items were found, made and used.
Don't Go Home Without
Enjoy a day off or book a ticket for a big evening show in Birmingham, a short train ride from the hotel. The renowned Symphony Hall, Birmingham Repertory Theatre and Birmingham Hippodrome present classical concerts, plays and touring shows all year round. Most weekends you can catch top-class football matches at the grounds of the two big local rivals, Birmingham City and Aston Villa.
You can get some fresh air and let the kids run around at two large parks within half a mile of the hotel. Pretty Malvern and Brueton Park is great for a stroll, with a nature reserve, woodland and an ornamental lake. Tudor Grange Park should keep you busy, with an 18-hole pitch-and-putt course, a skate park and outdoor gym equipment. Both parks have playgrounds for tots too.
