Just across the road from Edgbaston Cricket Ground, set in acres of beautiful green countryside, Cannon Hill Park is an activity-packed adventure park that promises a great day out.

Meet the animals at Birmingham Wildlife Conservation Park, take a tour on the Land Train, or catch a show at the MAC arts centre. From outdoor games like crazy golf to workshops and crafts for rainy days, there's plenty to do whatever the weather.

Indulge your senses at Birmingham's Botanical Gardens

Set on the other side of Edgbaston, the gardens boast 15 acres of tranquility, with special glasshouses transporting you to far-off lands like tropical rainforests and dry deserts.
