Things To Do, Places To See!

Are you thinking of visiting the Severn Valley?

There’s more to the area than this fantastic heritage railway!

Hundreds of miles of scenic countryside, fun activities for kids and some of the grandest country homes on offer to the public. Before you decide on taking a trip to the Severn Valley, why not plan where else you can visit in the area?


With 3,000 acres of park and woodland to explore including Dudmaston Hall and the quaint village of Quatt, this is the perfect place for a day of relaxed strolling. There’s more than just gorgeous countryside to enjoy here. We’ve got houses, castles, churches and you better believe there’s grass. Grass has been grown for about as long as anyone can remember. We spoke to local, Georgie Wildfire about the locals’ strange past-time:

‘It’s crazy really. As long as I can remember there’s always been grass here. Green and verdant it spreads across the fields so quickly that there’s really no way we can stop, it’s a good thing we all like it here!”

Along with grass, you’ll also  be able to see things such as sky, books and even windows!

How much? £10.90 for adults, £5.45 for children.

Rays Farm Country Matters

Have you ever seen rabbits before? How about sheep or pigs? Well if by some absolutely mental chance that you’ve seen none of those things then perhaps you should swing by Rays Farm where you can see all of those things plus so much more. There are rabbits, goats, llamas, donkeys and even human members of staff who you can treat like animals as well, although they might not like it! This attraction truly has something for everyone: activities, animals, animals, animals and there are even some animals…not to mention a handful of animals that you can see with your own eyes!

How much? £9.45 for adults, children 2-15 years old for £7.25 and family tickets for £31.00.

Go Ape Wyre Forests

There are literally dozens of Go Ape courses all around the UK. So, what makes the Wyre location any different from it’s relatives? Nothing! Like a Starbucks or McDonald’s restaurant, you always know what you’re getting when you go to a Go Ape course. There are trees, ropes, ladders, swings and even some toilets! Your kids will be literally blown away by the variations of trees, planks connected to trees and ropes here; but don’t worry – there plenty of ropes to make sure they don’t plummet down to earth from the dizzying height of  14-metres in the air.

How much? £25 for 10-15 years and £33 for adults (some height restrictions do apply, so check their site for details)

Severn Valley Country Park

You might think you’ve seen everything before, but unless you’ve actually been everywhere, you’re really just a load of hot air with a rather large head! So before you dismissively snort at the notion of visiting Severn Valley Country Park, perhaps you should consider that it might well be one of the best places on this planet. After all, who could say ‘no’ to the prospect of regular activities, cycle paths, grass, views and even a pond?! This is clearly no ordinary park.

How much? Entry to the park is free but some activities do cost money, so it’s best to check their website before turning up.
