Fun and leisure activities in Birmingham: things to know before you go

Need some help finding fun things to do with the family? Or want a great place to bring someone on a date? We have the answers for the most common questions about fun and leisure activities in Birmingham.

What are some fun things to do in Birmingham?

Birmingham is a city full of life and packed with fun things to see and do. Here’s just a fraction of what’s on offer:

  • Get all the stresses of life out of your system at a Rage Room. Full of things to smash, destroy and take out as much anger as you’ve got, a rage room is a great way to let off some steam. Try out offers available at Grange Live Gaming.
  • Spend an afternoon at the amazing Vortex Gaming Centre, enjoying their immersive Omni equipment, a full range of games and free-flowing soda!
  • Test your detective skills at an escape room and beat the challenges to claim victory – and freedom! There are several deals available for escape rooms in the city, including the science-fiction themed Exciting Game.

Are there any ghost tours in Birmingham?

Is there anything more adrenaline pumping than the prospect of a brush with the supernatural? If you’re looking to get into the Halloween year round, then Birmingham is the place to be to get up close and personal with the spirits of days gone by. Ghosts Unlimited have spookily-good deals on paranormal investigation tours that take place at the reportedly haunted Warstone Cemetery. Bring up to four friends (there’s safety in numbers after all!)

And if you need a stiff drink afterwards, why not try out some of Birmingham’s pubs and bars for a chance to gather your sense of calm after a close encounter.

What about family-friendly days out in Birmingham?

There’s plenty of fun places to go in the city, that are family-friendly as well, from trampoline parks to adventure playgrounds and everything in between. Here are just a few of our favourite ideas for family fun near you.

  • Time for a treasure hunt. You could take the whole family on a self-guided treasure trial across the city streets of Birmingham. It’s an ideal way to explore the city and spend quality time together. And who knows what treasures you’ll uncover. You’ll find deals from Treasuredays at a bargain price for the whole family.
  • Step back in time. Enjoy a day out at Selly Manor, a 14th century house filled with stories of days long gone that both adults and children will adore.
  • Burn off some energy. Head to Ackers Adventure Centre and take your pick from climbing, bush craft skills or tobogganing!
