We are meeting up with relatives who are travelling up the M5, then all going to the Peak District together. Somewhere fun to spend a couple of hours in the Bromsgrove area, or further north, would be great. Could do Cadbury World, but we are en route, so it could be a bit sick making to then drive for 2 hours! W Midland Safari Park is a bit big for a shortish break. I seem to remember that there is a good farm centre in the area? Any other suggestions much appreciated.

It's not really that long a journey: we can do it in about 2.5-3 hours (frequent travellers from south of Oxford to the Highlands). Do you really need to break it?

The Birmingham Nature Centre is much nicer than Cadbury World!

There is also Hatton Country World, which is nice but maybe a bit more out of the way.

How old are the children?

Black Country Museum is in that area. We enjoyed it.
