Things to see & do
Spring walks in the Midlands
Everything (and everyone) is starting to come out of hibernation.
Spring bulbs are blooming and we're feeling the urge to get outdoors again with a few less layers.
Mile upon mile of open space awaits you and your walking boots.
Spring is one of the best times of year to spot wildlife.
Many birds fly home from their warmer winters, small mammals start to re-appear and the outdoors bursts into colour with a huge array of bulbs and blossoms.
Discover indoor colour this spring
The springtime spectacle of colour is not only enjoyed outdoors in the Midlands. If you head behind closed doors you will also come across bright colours inside, from shiny silver to paintings rarely on display.
Discover something new
It's the season of new beginnings, which brings with it new exhibitions, new stories to tell and new rooms to open.
Here are some of the highlights you might be exploring this spring.
A new season means new flavours.
