Things to do at Wyre Forest Centre review

The Wyre Forest Centre near Kidderminster in Worcestershire is a great outdoor day out with walking, cycling, running and horse trails available. They usually have a family-friendly trail and there is a play area.

There is an arboretum with an unusual Whittey Pear and an on-site cafe. If you can’t take your bikes with you there is a cycle hire shop and a Go Ape course for young and old. In the forest, there is a family mountain bike trail that takes you through a variety of woodland.
