Help! I need suggestions for a day out in Birmingham which will appeal to 4 children/Teens and Grandparents. Preferably not costing the earth! Am I searching for the impossible?!?
Yep. Go somewhere else
Ha! Not an option I am afraid for all sorts of reasons!
££££ but Think Tank.
Agree with the somewhere else!
Lots to do in canon hill park - golf, rides, playgrounds, wildlife park
Martineau gardens, botanical gardens, Cannon Hill (crazy golf)Trip on the canalThe librarySelly Manor Back to BacksElectric cinema
It depends where you are going and how you’re getting there tbh as you don’t want to park in town all day, but if you’re getting the train then some of the places will be hard to get to
Depends on what you like. The art gallery is great. The museum of the jewellery quarter is bril with grand parents in tow - lots of “ oh interesting” and “ my mother had that /used that “ chats. Further out and outside - botanical gardens , winterborne house and gardens and of course Cadbury world ( bleurgh imho)
Thanks guys.We are based in Solihull so think we will get the train in to the centre.Like the look of the BBC visitors centre.Have also seen that the library has a Harry Potter exhibition on.Canal sounds like a plan too.Will look at the others
Have done Cadbury World and we weren’t that impressed
The Cereal Killer Cafe for a late breakfast (kids love it), the art gallery, library, New Street Station shops, Selfridges (kids love the ground floor), cinema.
From Solihull you could just as easy get the train to Warwick or Leamington Spa
Take them to Lake District instead. I am sure the kids would love it.
