Stretching for 250 acres and made up of formal gardens, woodland and sports areas, it’s no wonder Cannon Hill Park is the most popular park in the city. Whether you’re in the mood for boating or bowls, trekking or tennis, putting or picnicking, you’ll find the perfect spot here.
Head six miles north of the city and escape into the 2,000 acres of open heathland, woodlands, marshes and lakes that make up Sutton Park. Packed with plants and wildlife, a choice of playgrounds and restaurants, a railway, golf course and donkey sanctuary, there’s plenty to see and do.
Built in 1834, Birmingham Town Hall’s grand architecture and Roman columns dominate Victoria Square. Hosting everything from comedy, dance and music concerts to fashion shows, graduation ceremonies and community events, it’s well worth a look inside and out.
St Paul's Square sits in the heart of the Jewellery Quarter. Explore the beautiful eighteenth century church at its centre or simply sit back and soak up the atmosphere in one of the many bars, cafés and restaurants, which line the four sides of the square.
Venture south west of Birmingham on your way to Worcester and you’ll arrive at Lickey Hills. Over 500 acres, you’ll find a varied and vibrant habitat. If you head out for a trek in the hills, be sure to explore the wide range of rock formations dating back millions of years.
