Best Things To Do & Days Out In Wolverhampton

Dive into our list of fun things to do in Wolverhampton and get ready to plan your next family day out with the kids!

History, open space and farm animals are all rolled into one at Northycote Farm and Country Park. This Tudor farm features lots of opportunities to enjoy the local wildlife as well as the chance to meet friendly farm animals, such as sheep, cattle and pigs.

For a bit of history and culture there’s Bantock House and Museum - an Edwardian house set in acres of well-manicured parkland, or, if your kids are big footy fans, visit the Wolves Museum. A Wolverhampton family day out is bound to score!

If the weather is nice, Phoenix Park is just a little bit further out and has a great adventure play frame, sensory garden and some fitness equipment for those that fancy a quick workout in scenic surroundings!

If you don’t mind travelling a little bit of the city on your next family day out, pay a visit to the Royal Air Force Museum Cosford or enjoy a family walk at the stunning Wightwick Manor.
