Worcestershire's largest town, Kidderminster, is just 18 miles from Birmingham and less than 40 miles from the Welsh border. An attractive town in the Wyre Forest district, Kidderminster is perhaps best known for being the centre of production of woven carpets, an industry that continues in the town to this day.
Magic carpet ride
The Museum of Carpet in Kidderminster is a spellbinding exploration of a creative industry that has served the area since 1785. The museum offers an educational and fun interactive experience. You'll learn about the women and men who worked at a time when conditions were poor and factory operatives had few rights. You'll see the great looms in action and even get the chance to design your own carpet.
Steam trains and the Worcestershire countryside
Whether you're a steam enthusiast or someone who simply enjoys travelling through splendid countryside, you'll find a lot to relish on the Severn Valley Railway. Step back in time and board a vintage train at Kidderminster. Here you'll begin a journey that stops at four country stations before arriving at Bridgnorth. Along the way, alight at Highley to see the Engine House which is a museum dedicated to steam locomotives. Here you'll have great views of trains pulling in and out of the station. From start to finish, the journey takes just over an hour and is a wonderful way of seeing the local area.
A 20 minute drive will take you to the Wyre Forest National Nature Reserve where you'll explore beautiful woodland areas teeming with wildlife and trees. Wyre forest overlaps the counties of Worcestershire and Shropshire and measures 10mi2 in total. Here there are plenty of opportunities for strolls, orienteering and cycling.
