Library of Birmingham

Birmingham's main library was opened in 2013 and is one of the most recognizable and visited buildings in England's second city. The Birmingham's library is the largest public library in the UK and is as remarkable as looking on the inside as it is on the outside. As soon as you walk in you feel like you're in some sort of literary spaceship. And the collections are just as out of this world, including the Boulton and Watt Archives, the Parker collection of children's books and several notable photography collections and archives. In addition, the library houses the Shakespeare Memorial Room, designed in 1882 and moved from the old central library to this one.

Ash End House Children's Farm

A fun day out for children, especially since the emphasis is on close contact with the animals. Youngsters can hold newly-hatched chicks, take a pony ride and help to feed the animals. All your familiar farmyard friends are here, and some less familiar in the form of rare breeds. There are also demonstrations of traditional crafts associated with the farm, such as wool spinning. The farm is both interesting and educational and parents should enjoy it too.

The Birmingham Botanical Gardens & Glasshouses

These fine gardens, opened in 1832, were designed by John Claudius Loudon, a leading garden planner, and horticultural journalist. The gardens offer you the chance to see some of the most beautiful greenery in the world along with stunning glasshouses. Attractions besides plants include indoor aviaries, a restaurant with a fantastic view of the gardens, a children's adventure playground, a gift shop and plant center and a gallery displaying work by local artists.

Butterfly Farm

Proudly proclaiming the fact that it is "Europe's largest", the Stratford-upon-Avon Butterfly Farm affords a peaceful retreat away from all things Shakespearean. Hundreds of butterflies can be viewed at close quarters, many of the species sporting spectacular colors. For those interested in less attractive, more frightening creatures, other insect displays are available, including stick insects, leaf-eating ants and the world's largest spider.

Wyre Forest

Spanning the borders of Worcestershire and Shropshire, Wyre Forest is spread across sprawling swathes of woodland. This forest is set amid the backdrop of rolling hills, aged woods, orchards, and a fringe of quaint villages, safari routes and charming market towns like Kidderminster and Bewdly. From owls and wood warblers to lovely pearl-bordered butterflies, this teeming forest is particularly famed for the enormous melange of wildlife it shelters in its depth. The forest is also replete with opportunities for adventure, featuring zip lines, Tarzan swings and more. A naturalist's dream and a wonderland for the intrepid adventurer, this mystical forest is criss-crossed with hiking trails while the gorgeous Dowles Brook pierces through its heart.

Kenilworth Castle

Kenilworth's most historic sight, the ruins of this unmistakable castle can be seen standing amid a field of verdure, adjacent to the iconic Leicester's Gatehouse. Sculpted from new red sandstone, its distinct military design sets it apart from its equally-exalted peers. One of the most impressive exemplars of a medieval semi-royal fortress, the castle's steep bailey walls, lavish inner court, and other preserved features stand as remarkable remnants of history and heritage. The castle has seen its fair share of battles over the centuries, with the Great Siege of 1266 being its most defining event, immortalizing it as a cornerstone of 13th-century British heritage.
