We bring you the most wonderful things to do in Worcestershire during your stay
Worcestershire is filled to the brim with weird and wonderful things to do all year round, but as the weather gets warmer, the events calendar fills up. We have put together a list of the top 10 things to do in Worcestershire this season to help you make the most of your trip.
For an action packed, hands-on event with food, farming and countryside at its core, make sure you visit The Royal Three Counties Show this Easter. The three day event, running Friday 16 to Sunday 18 June 2017, will be filled with free activities, entertainment and countryside creatures guaranteed to keep the whole family entertained. They have a number of incredible shows lined up, which include a freestyle motocross stunt display, a free-fall parachute by regiment team, The Red Devils, a grand parade of livestock and a dazzling hot air balloon display. Purchase tickets and find out more today.
Visit the Croome Estate
Once a secret wartime air base, you can now enjoy walks around the parkland of Croome Estate and explore Croome Court. Situated at the heart of the park, Croome was once home to the Earl of Coventry with four floors to explore. The 6th Earl of Coventry was an 18th century trend-setter and today Croome follows his lead by using artists and craftspeople in the house to tell the story of its eclectic past. On Wednesday 29th March 2017 you can enjoy a Spring Walk in the parkland of Croome Court with Katherine, the Garden & Park manager, who will explore the recent restoration to the garden and point out the superb spring flowers. The walk is free but booking is essential. Why not try something different and bring your canine friend along to The Great British Dog Walk at Croome Court? On Saturday 25th March 2017 a series of walks are being organised at the beautiful venue of Croome, aiming to raise money for Hearing Dogs. Everyone is welcome to take part, and you don’t have to be a dog owner to attend.
