The wonderful town of Kidderminster is the birthplace of the modern carpet industry, and Led Zeppelin’s Robert Plant. That goes some way to giving you an idea of how varied a town Kidderminster is. During your stay at our hotel in Kidderminster, you can drive your way through the lion-infested wilderness of West Midlands Safari Park, take a trip back in time aboard the steam locomotives of the Severn Valley Railway, or just eat until you can’t eat any more with our round up of the best restaurants in town.
Things to do in Kidderminster
The West Midlands Safari Park understandably heads up our top days out in Kidderminster. It’s one of the best wildlife parks in the country. But, it’s not the only option on your doorstep. You can visit the beautiful Harvington Hall, walk through the Bodenham Arboretum, get into the great outdoors of Wyre Forest, or step aboard one of the UK’s best heritage railways.
Perhaps you’re looking for the best local pub for live music? Or would you rather enjoy your evening’s entertainment at Kidderminster Town Hall, with its glorious Victorian decor and famously ornate organ? Or what about the local football team? Or the local amateur theatre, which brings professional quality productions to the people of Kidderminster? Whatever you’re looking for, the chances are you’ll find it here.
Places to eat
There’s a French charm to the culinary options in Kidderminster with a grand total of three bistro options for you to choose from for your evening’s eating. Our local guide also features our favourite curry house, a cracking Chinese restaurant, a dining room with a view, and cafes galore.
Take your pick from canalside pints, CAMRA favourite micropubs, one of the nation’s favourite wine bars, an excellent bric-a-brac watering hole with a wonderful all-day menu of food, or just go the whole hog and make your way into town for a night out at one of Kidderminster’s recommended clubs.
