About the park

Lickey Hills Country Park is one of Birmingham’s most varied and treasured parks. It covers 524 acres and is located just 10 miles south west of Birmingham.

The park offers different things to different people - it’s a place for family days out, to spot wildlife, for sport, school trips, or maybe just for the views and a cup of tea.

Lickey Hills has a complex and interesting geology which has created a variety of habitats. These include woodlands, heathland and grassland, which are home to an incredible diversity of wildlife.

Lickey Hills is designated as a country park.
