A rather unique and interesting visit is the Commonwealth Cemetary on Cannock Chase. It has a German Military Cemetary attached to it, which is vastly different to our own format. At the rear of the German Cemetary are a number of larger gravestones, under which are the crews of either three or four Zeppelins. Not really worth a visit on its own, but if you are in the Chase area.................

Another attraction I would offer is The Coventry Transport Museum. Right in the town centre so it is a great place to visit while the shoppers shop.

And its totally free to get in.

I suspect I'm a bit off track for West Midlands ( despite boyhood spent near Shifnal) but I would also recommend the Needle Museum at Redditch as a really interesting place to visit.

You haven't even begun to scratch the surface. Drayton Manor theme park, Warwick and Kenilworth Castles, the river and theatres at Stratford-upon-Avon. Ragley Hall (one of the best children's adventure playgrounds I've come across). Twycross Zoo. Wighwick Manor, Shugborough, Baddesley Clinton and Coughton Court (all beautiful buildings with unique and fascinating histories, lovingly preserved by the National Trust). Or just walk or cycle at Kingsbury Water Park or Cannock Chase (or the latter has a Go Ape zip wire) - both have their own C&CC sites!

The only problem is that living near Walsall, we don't need our caravan to visit these places!
