With historic buildings, beautiful countryside parks and museums to visit, there’s plenty of ways to celebrate May Day with the family. To help you get the most out of your long weekend, we’ve compiled our top suggestions on what to do in Coventry and Warwickshire:

Morning Walk at Coombe Country Park

With over 500 acres of of gardens you could happily get lost walking around the award-winning Coombe Country Park. Wander through the woodland or around the lakeside walks, enjoying a bit of springtime sunshine. With plenty of bird watching hideouts, it’s also perfect for wildlife enthusiasts. Afterwards why not grab a light bite in our Garden Bar or make a booking for our delicious afternoon tea – voted as one of the top 30 places to enjoy afternoon tea by The Telegraph experts!

Explore Coventry’s culture

Spend an afternoon in Coventry’s Herbert Art Gallery and Museum, with current exhibitions exploring new art in the West Midlands. Pick up a hot drink in the cafe before visiting historic Coventry cathedral which is conveniently located right next to the Herbert.
