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 has a Green Flag Award and is designated as a Country Park.

Visitor Centre and other facilities

The Park Rangers are based at the Lickey Hills Visitor Centre. Drop in to find information about the hills from the rangers desk.

The café serves light snacks, and there is good indoor and outdoor seating. The café is run as a separate business and may close earlier than the centre at 3:30pm during quieter periods.

All dogs except service dogs must remain outside the building. You will find a dog water bowl on the terrace behind the centre.

Be aware that the café and gift shop do not accept card payments but cash only. We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause.

Accessible toilets and baby changing facilities are located inside the Visitor Centre.

The centre is located at the end of Warren Lane off Rose Hill. It’s open daily from 10.00am to 4:20pm in the winter and until 5:50pm in the summer.
