Welcome to West Midlands Safari and Leisure Park. This is one of the Midlands top destinations. It is located in Worcestershire A456 through Kidderminster to Bewdley. The best access from Birmingham is via the Hagley Road and along the A456. This extensive Safari and Leisure Park covers an area of some 200 acres. It is targeted at family entertainment and visitors get the chance to drive through the Safari Park and then spend time at the Park's amusements. An armband is issued so that there is no individual queing necessary to pay for the rides. This is a good place to spend a day with the family although it can get very busy and crowded in peak season and at weekends. The park is closed during the winter months.
Sapey Golf Club is set high in the rolling hills of the Herefordshire and Worcestershire border. The very same countryside that inspired Elgar to such greatness. We can't unfortunately, guarantee it will do the same for your golf but it will be a good walk that nothing will spoil. Wild life abounds at Sapey, finding refuge in the surrounding woods, cornfields and pastures, all observed on high by our adopted family of buzzards.If this is still not challenging enough then the 10,000 trees and shrubs will provide the sternest test. These were carefully selected as a combination of fast growing conifers and the more glamorous broad leaf variety.
The Wyre Forest Golf Club is ideally situated within the Kidderminster, Stourport and Bewdley triangle and within easy reach from Worcester, Set in rolling countryside the 18 hole course has been built to standards expected by professional and club golfers alike with course features including a computerised irrigation system. The layout offers golfers of any ability a true test of their standard.To complement the course there is a purpose-built clubhouse incorporating a fully stocked pro shop as well as bar and catering facilities and changing rooms for both men and ladies.
The moated island was made about 1260 and parts of the Hall are medieval, but most of it was built by Humphrey Pakington about 1580. Many rooms have their orignal Elizabethan wallpaper. Humphrey Pakington was a catholic, the Hall contains the best surviving series of priest holes in the country. Four of them seem to be the work of the master-builder of hides, Nicholas Owen, who was arrested at Hindlip, near Worcester, in 1606 and tortured to death in The Tower of London. Nevertheless, Humphrey held a post in the household of Lord Chancellor Ellesmere and the family letters refer to politics, London fashions and rare plants acquired from the royal gardener Tradescant, as well as to coach mares, the bribing of juries, medical treatment and lamprey pies.
Witley court was once one of the most magnificent stately homes in the country. Though gutted by fire in 1938 its ruins are still spectacular, and are being lovingly restored by English heritage. The Parish Church, which is attached to the ruins, survived the fire, and so visitors can still enjoy the magnificent paintings. These have been described as the Sistine chapel of the north, and will take your breath away. The fountains, which were an integral part of the landscaped gardens, are also being restored. The largest fountain, representing Perseus and Andromeda, once shot water 120 feet upwards.
Travelling on the Severn Valley Railway is a great way to see the Severn Valley. Starting off at the station in Kidderminster you can take the train to Bridgnorth stopping at Bewdley, Arley, Highley and Hampton Loade stations. A journey into the past and the days of the steam engine.
