  • A sunny BBQ (weather permitting) nothing beats a BBQ with loved ones. Grill some food, enjoy good drinks and even better company. To make it perfect, here’s a guide to a great family BBQ.
  • Plan a visit; it has been rated as one of the best family days out in the Midlands for all action-adventure loving families. With activities such as water rafting, Segway rides, army-style assault courses and more.! Here’s a top tip, too - you can purchase zone packages if your kids are interested in trying multiple activities, which works out a little cheaper.

A boozy Bank holiday

Are you looking to spend the bank holiday with friends with incredible drinks and even better company? These are just a few activities that you can enjoy with friends.

  • Wine and gin tours may sound like something you can only do in France or Italy, but some stunning vineyards across the West Midlands offer tours and even tastings of wine locations as close as Bridgenorth.
  • Why not get arty with events such as prosecco and paint night. These events are fun for friends to get together to unwind and let their creative side flow, whether you want to paint a stunning image or a piece of pottery.
  • Do you prefer something that gets your heart racing? Why not sign up for an escape room or even try your hand at Birmingham's own Haunted city game. Enjoy an increased heart rate and embrace your competitive streak.

  • In the botanical garden in Birmingham, enjoy a peaceful day out and escape the bustle of the city and enjoy the tranquillity and beauty. You can enjoy the various tropical glasshouses, stunning gardens, and breathtaking lakes.
  • Looking for something a little more challenging, why not walk the Wrekin? Enjoy the lovely view once you make it to the top and enjoy the stunning views of Telford.
  • Or choose from some of the amazing trails and walks that the National Trust offers. Whether you are interested in walking alongside the water or one filled with history, there's a range for you to choose from.

The service provided was very quick and most of all the person who served me was excellent with his customer care skills. A credit to the company as you don't get to see service like this anymore.

If I need a van I will get a van, even if they have to stretch their resources. Never did I hear 'we can't help you', sensibly priced and quite flexible. Definitely worth recommending.
