10 things to do in the Black Country this Autumn Half Term!

I adore this time of year. The weather is – in the main – beautiful. Not too hot, but not too cold. There are so many beautiful colours around and there’s something really special about wrapping up, going out for the day and getting back home and drinking hot chocolate and snuggling down on the sofa watching a family film. There also seems to be an abundance of family friendly activities to pick from. So, with that in mind, here are our top 10 of things to do in the Black Country this Autumn Half Term!
