Birmingham, England

I will be in Birmingham, England at a camp for a week this summer. I may have an afternoon or so for free time....are there any suggestions for anything to do in this area with a free afternoon? Thanks!

Unless you are right in central Brummagem (as we call it amongst Brummies, and as many years as I had around Brum I feel I can - just over 150 for the family so nearly locals by now) and stand to be badly affected by the tunnel closures this summer, a drive through the Warwickshire countryside to Stratford-upon-Avon (rather than the train, don't take the motorway, watch parking like a hawk in Stratford), or into the near Cotswolds - Broadway, Chipping Campden, that area, would be highly rewarding. Or a trip to a moated manor house now owned by the National Trust, Baddesley Clinton near Solihull which also has a walk around a large pond, a nice restaurant, fabulous gardens.
