At one with nature

The Great Outdoors

The Severn Valley offers an enchanting playground for nature enthusiasts and adventure seekers alike.

Spanning picturesque landscapes and embracing the region’s rich heritage, this outdoor haven presents an array of attractions.

The meandering River Severn takes centre stage. Along its banks, walkers, joggers and cyclists enjoy scenic pathways through lush meadows and dense woodlands, offering opportunities to relax in nature’s splendour.

For those with an adventurous spirit, the Wyre Forest beckons with its ancient woodlands and diverse trails. Hikers, dog walkers and mountain bikers can explore hidden glades, babbling brooks, and panoramic viewpoints. The Go Ape high tree zip wire experience entices thrill seekers of all ages and provides a breath-taking view above the trees.

Arley Arboretum and Gardens and Bodenham Arboretum provide a sensory escape, where visitors can wander through curated landscapes bursting with colours and fragrances. The vibrant displays of flowers and the majesty of ancient trees offer a symphony of visual delights that change with the seasons.

The nostalgic Severn Valley Railway marries history with nature, chugging through the heart of the valley while offering sweeping vistas of rolling hills and quaint villages.

The Severn Valley presents an outdoor escape that invites exploration, adventure, and a profound connection with the natural world – just 25 miles (40km) due west from Birmingham city centre.
