Top3: The best things to do in Worcestershire


The real beauty when it comes to travel and Worcestershire is that it is within two hours drive of 80 per cent of the rest of England, so there really is no excuse for visiting! Here are the options for arriving and travelling around the county.

The Great Worcester Maize Maze

Fields at Great Worcester Maize Maze

Upton Rd, Powick, Worcester WR2 4QZ

Situated on the outskirts of Worcester in Powick is the exciting The Great Worcester Maize Maze. A fun family day out organised by the Colton family on their farm.

The farm is no longer a dairy farm, now concentrating on beef and sheep with a small area of arable. The maize crop is used after the visitor season to feed the livestock on the farm.

The comapany would like to offer a place where people can come and enjoy the countryside by offering a relaxed atmosphere in the courtyard where people can sit and enjoy the views of the Malvern Hills while children play on the courtyard games, before heading into the maze as a family or group of friends.

Station Severn Valley Railway, Hollybush Rd, Bridgnorth WV16 5DP

From the platform and footbridge, you can enjoy a wonderful and exciting view of the locomotive works, where you might catch a steam engine taking on coal and water, or being maintained by the Railway’s engineers. Make sure you visit either the GWR-style refreshment room or the on-platform pub, the Railwayman’s Arms, which has been serving pints since 1861.

Bridgnorth is served by several bus services. The SVR has a large car park at WV16 5DP with more than 200 spaces available at £4 per day.
