The West Midlands cover a huge area (902 square kilometres to be precise), packed with countless places and attractions where you can enjoy the great outdoors. A bit of forward planning will go a long way to making sure your day out is a safe one.

If there are children in your family, please make sure you talk to them about the dangers of open water and of trespassing on the railways. So whether it’s a country walk or bike ride, or you’re having a couple of nights in your tent or caravan, enjoy – and stay safe!
