What to do during the bank holiday?

This May we have three bank holidays, 1st, 8th and 29th, what are you doing with the extra long weekends?

We have listed a few ideas of free things to do in the local area! 

Walks around the clent hills

The fabulous Clent Hills are located less than ten miles from the centre of Birmingham. They’re an oasis of natural beauty and the perfect place to escape city life for the day. Managed by the National Trust it’s home to many well marked trails, sites of historical interest and stunning views all the way to Wales. The Clent Hills is a great option for kids as there’s plenty for them to see, climb on and space to run free.

Explore the canals
Did you know that Birmingham has more miles of canal than Venice? The heart of Birminghams Canal network winds around restaurants, pubs and shopping outlets and welcomes hundreds of boats and barges daily. Enjoy the pretty scenery along the canal and pop into one of the 19th century pubs along the way.Click here to learn more about the canals

Donkey Sanctury at Sutton Park
As well as offering donkey-assisted therapy to children with additional needs Birmingham Donkey Sanctury  is open to the general public – and admission is free. You can even adopt a donkey, if you fall in love too much to say goodbye.

The Library – Birmingham 
The library has a lot more on offer than just books. A visually appealing building inside and out, explore its ten floors of free fun. Enjoy photography exhibitions, performances, craft workshops, poetry readings and other activities. In the summer, grab a coffee from one of the library’s cafés and head up to the popular seventh-floor secret garden terrace for panoramic views of the city. (please check opening times before visiting)
