Summer 2019 Family Activities in and Around Wombourne

Adventure Street

Adventure Street, near Wolverhampton, is a beautifully designed child size play town. A great place for children bursting with imagination. Play alongside your child while they serve you barista style coffee, give you a new makeover and even tend to the horses at Baggeridge’s first child sized stables.

Founded by a teacher and a team of play consultants, it’s West Midlands’ newest play venue for under 7s. Every aspect has been designed to grow children’s confidence and develop life skills through the use of familiar real-life scenarios.

Wild Zoo

Wild Zoo is a zoo with a difference. WILD Zoological Park was born out of a dream to educate the public about different animals, poke holes in common misconceptions and to remove stigmas commonly associated with animals that aren’t so cute and fluffy. Just a few minutes drive from Wombourne, this is a great family day out.
