Lovely place to get to know Worcestershire’s history. There’s all sorts of period buildings there, with plenty to learn. Best to go on a sunny day, as there’s normally plenty of outdoor activities. There’s also a mini steam railway that’s great fun for little ones.

Went with friends and 4 kids ranging from 18 months-5 they all loved it. The little train is great. The two play areas are superb. The quality of the buildings and restoration is fab. Really good day.
