Free Days Out in Worcestershire this Summer!

Aug 9 2022 Event Explore Family Friendly What's On

The rising cost of living is causing many of us to make sacrifices to our everyday lives. With the added pressures and stresses it is bringing, one of those sacrifices must not be enjoying days out with friends and family.

But don’t worry! We’ve put together a list of FREE Worcestershire attractions which won’t make a dent in your wallet.

1. Sunflower Fields at Becketts Farm

The most Instagrammable location in Worcestershire this summer!

Fields of beautiful sunflowers are on show to the public free of charge at the spectacular Becketts Farm in Wythall.

Take in the smells and sounds of the beautiful countryside with a stunning sea of yellow. Visitors can also combine their visit with a trip to the popular restaurant serving some of the best breakfasts in the area.

As the sunflower is the national flower of Ukraine, the farm thought it would be right to support the Disasters Emergency Committee. So therefore please donate if you can whilst visiting!

Be quick as the fields are only going to be open for a few weeks!

2. Worcester Cathedral

For the history enthusiasts or those who just love to see inside the grandest historical buildings, Worcester Cathedral offer a free non-guided tour.

Whilst they do offer a wide variety of paid tours which give access-all-areas, the main parts of the Cathedral are open to the public 10am – 5pm every day except for Sunday, when they are open 1pm – 3pm, with last entry 30 minutes before closing.

3. The Malvern Hills

An Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. What better way to clear your mind and reset by challenging yourself with a walk up the Malvern Hills?

We promise it’s worth it for the views from the top and the sense of achievement. There are many accessible routes most of the way with places to park, so you can make the challenge as long or as short as you like!

4. Tudor House Museum, Worcester

Erected around 1520 this Grade II listed building is steeped in history. Set in a fine example of a close-studded timber framed building with the only remaining original bossed ceiling in Worcester, this really is a hidden gem for history lovers and those seeking FREE activities.

5. Wyre Forest

Over 1,000 years old and the largest woodland National Nature Reserve in the country, the Wyre Forest has something for everyone. With walking, running, and even family mountain bike trails, take a whole day to escape the rest of the world, have fun and enjoy the fresh air.

Did you know there is a special National Trust site at the heart of the forest? Knowles Mill is a great pit stop along Dowles Brook.
