Days out in the midlands this October

I love a good day out with the kids but especially in the autumn. I find it’s not as busy or hot (which can make everyone a little grumpy) I have a list of places we love visiting and I thought why not share them with you in case you’re struggling for something to do. All these days out I think are reasonably priced because we all need low cost days out this close to Christmas.

I’ve chosen days out in the midlands as that where I live so have either heard good things, or been myself.

Gruffalo Orienteering

There are lots of places that do this up and down the country but I have linked the one we went to. Car parking was around £4 and the Gruffalo map was £1.50 and we spent hours there. L

Zog Trail

This is also in lots of places up and down the country. The trail is £3 per kit and parking charge is around £4 again.

Mini Meadows Farm 

This is a lovely day out, I recently went with Jack and his preschool. They have lots of animals to feed, pet and cuddle, a great outdoor and indoor play area and a cafe and only £5 per person.

Ryton Pools Country Park

I recently visited this place with Jack for a birthday party and it was so much fun! So many things to do. I will definitely be visiting again with the whole family soon.

Hatton Adventure World

Now we’ve never actually been here but we’ve always wanted to as we’ve only heard good things. Hopefully we can this half term.

St Nicholas Park

We’ve been here many times because there is something to do no matter your budget. We’ve been when we’ve had money and we’ve been low on funds and each time has been fun.

Anne Hathaways Cottage

Again it’s another place I haven’t visited yet but really want to. It’s something I am really interested in. Also I like places that give the kids some culture. Will definitely visit soon. You can actually buy tickets to just this one place or buy tickets that are for Anne Hathaways Cottage plus

  • Shakespeare’s birthplace
  • Mary Arden’s Farm
  • Shakespeare’s New Place
  • Hall’s Croft

Which is excellent value for money. I think I’d like to do this option.

Dudley Zoo

This is somewhere we have been before and I think it’s one of the best zoo’s we’ve been to. They have added more items since we’ve been so we’re looking forward to seeing them soon.

Do you have any favourite days out in the midlands? I would love to add some more days out to our to see list.
