There's so much for families to see and do in and around Birmingham that you'll be spoilt for choice, but these top 5 attractions should be on your to-do list.

(National Sealife Centre Birmingham)

National Sealife Centre

There is so much to see at the National Sea Life Centre including the UK’s Only 360° Ocean Tunnel where you can marvel at sharks, a giant turtle, rays and hundreds of tropical fish swimming overhead and underneath as you walk through the sea in this truly unique experience. Marvel at the cheeky antics of the Gentoo penguins, as they dive beneath the freezing waters and play in their icy home. Plus you can now dive in to a world of slime, stingers, and brainless jelly at Jelly Invaders!

Treetop Adventure Golf

Step into Birmingham’s lushest rainforest, where temples crumble, ancient spirits stir and mini golf reigns supreme. Tackle the Tropical Trail or the Ancient Explorer, the two indoor, 18-hole courses. Family champions, teams of mates, mini putters, senior masters… they have something for everyone and a visit to Birmingham isn’t complete without a trip to Treetop Adventure Golf.

Out of Birmingham (16.5mi)

Black Country Living Museum is a 26-acre open air museum that tells the story of the industrial revolution in the 1700s up to the late 1960s through the everyday lives of the people whose skills shaped the modern world. A recreated ‘living’ village and town centre lie at the heart of the Museum and give visitors an atmospheric glimpse into the lives of ordinary folk who made the Black Country a thriving industrial community.
