Lickey Hills Country Park
Warren Lane Rednal Birmingham B45 8ER
Birmingham is a large and sprawling city that seems to go on for ever. Lickey Hills may just prove to be the perfect antidote, a tranquil country park just 10 miles from the city centre that offers lovely, easy walks through 524 acres of picturesque countryside. A network of paths means the ‘Lickeys’ is great terrain for ramblers, mountain-bikers and dog walkers. Seasoned strollers may wish to explore the woodland or take an extended trek to Wasley Park, eight miles away. Wayfaring walkers needn't fear getting lost as maps are available from the visitors' centre, which, together with the café, offers the perfect opportunity to rest up.
