Trips from Solihull
We love being based in the Midlands, but we also love getting out and exploring the places around us. Here are some of our favourite trips to take from Solihull. Have you got any you would add to this?
West Midlands Safari Park
A fun and action-packed day out for all the family, you can drive through the safari, explore the adventure theme park or visit the land of the living dinosaurs – if you dare. From zebras to tigers, elephants to lions, you can discover it all at West Midlands Safari Park.
To go to Stratford, or not to go to Stratford… The birthplace of William Shakespeare, immerse yourself in his life and work by visiting some of the most iconic sites in the country. Once all the excitement of the day is over, stop for a drink in the oldest pub in Stratford, the Old Thatch Tavern.
The National Trust
Just a short way away from Solihull lies two spectacular trails of the National Trust. The first one is Baddesley Clinton, which is an estate that houses 500 years of stories. Take a tour of the house and enjoy the on-site café, before taking a walk (or drive) to the next destination.
Five miles down the road is Packwood House. Described as ‘a house to dream of, a garden to dream in’, we couldn’t agree more. View the textiles and furniture on display here and discover salvaged objects from years gone by.
Home to Thomas Land as well as the main theme park, you will find something for all the family at Drayton Manor. Explore the rides and attractions or visit the zoo to see everything from meerkats to Sumatran tigers. Book online before your visit to save some money!
