Everyone loves the bank holiday weekends, as what’s not to like about an extra day off from work or school. There is plenty on in Birmingham this weekend, but here are our top picks for what you could do this bank holiday weekend.

Drayton Manor Park

Going to a theme park is a great way to spend your bank holiday, whether you are going with your friends or family (depending on who your household is). Drayton Manor is open once again, and they have plenty on offer. So you can have fun whilst staying Covid safe. But we definitely recommend pre-booking tickets online, as they are cheaper than tickets at the gate.

Luna Drive-In Cinema

A trip to the drive-in cinema could be a special treat for the bank holiday weekend, as they have a range of films showing each day. It’s just like a normal trip to the cinema, except you get to stay in the comfort of your own car. Meaning you don’t have to sit next to strangers or risk a child kicking your seat. It really is an experience like no other.

This bank holiday weekend is the perfect opportunity to go outside and get some fresh air, which you can do by taking a walking tour of Birmingham. It really is the perfect option, as you can get some exercise and be a tourist in your own home all in one.

This bank holiday weekend also marks the start of the Faster Than Ever exhibition in Birmingham, which will have work from more than 20 artists across the world. The exhibition will be at Oozells Square, and you can view the exhibition for free, making it a great day out that is educational and affordable.
