Plan a Great Day Out

Head into Birmingham's Jewellery Quarter and take a guided tour around the J.W. Evans Silver Factory, or go south of the city and visit the stunning shell of Witley Court, with its beautiful gardens and woodland. The independent tearoom next door serves delicious light lunches and cakes.
