An attraction local to Tamworth but not in Tamworth

Ash End House Children's Farm

The farm is jam-packed full of things to do. On admission, each child gets a bucket of animal feed - guard it carefully from the greedy goats! You are then able to roam 'free-range' through the animal enclosures and the outside play areas.

You can choose to join scheduled free activities throughout the day, on a drop-in basis:

  • Chat to a chick
  • Egg collecting
  • Sit on a pony

Other activities: (check the board as these are weather dependent or seasonal)

Kingsbury Water Park

So much to see and do at Warwickshire’s premier waterside attraction!

Kingsbury Water Park has 15 lakes situated in over 600 acres of country park. Stroll along the surfaced paths, explore hidden corners, spot birds and wildlife, hire a bike, join an organised event or host your own event. Whatever your idea of a countryside visit is, you will find it at Kingsbury.

Middleton Hall & Gardens


Middleton Hall & Gardens is a serene historic estate on the North Warwickshire border between Tamworth and Sutton Coldfield. Boasting a unique Grade II* listed manor house, a tranquil Georgian Walled Garden and extensive luscious grounds, it is a ‘must see’ when visiting the local area. 

The Courtyard at Middleton Hall


Visit The Courtyard at Middleton Hall where you will discover an eclectic mix of independent retailers within a peaceful Victorian stableyard. Whether you are visiting the neighbouring Middleton Hall & Gardens, walking around the nearby RSPB Middleton Lakes, or just fancy a coffee with friends, The Courtyard is the ideal place to escape the crowds and unwind. 

Moira Furnace Craft Village

Moira Furnace Museum is set in a country park and the resorted stretch of the Ashby Canal runs alongside. Boat trips on the Joseph Wilkes Narrow boat run throughout the Summer season, a relaxing sail along the canal watching the local wildlife.

The Furnace played a significant part of the industrial revolution and is probably one of the most important blast furnaces still in existence throughout Europe.

National Forest Company

The National Forest is right in the heart of the country, embracing 200 square miles of the Midlands. It spans across parts of Derbyshire, Leicestershire and Staffordshire and aims to link the two ancient Forests of Charnwood and Needwood. With a history of coal mining and heavy industry, the landscape is now that of rolling farmland, ancient forests and new planted woodlands. Its main towns and villages include Burton upon Trent (famous for its brewing), Coalville and Swadlincote (formerly associated with the clay and coal mining industries) and the historic town of Ashby-de-la-Zouch.
