Things to do on Handover Day


At Porsche, we want to create the most memorable and special handover experience imaginable. We'll give you some suggestions in this post for things to do when you leave Porsche Centre Solihull in your new Porsche, such as dining at one of Leicestershire Solihull's top restaurants or exploring its picturesque countryside. These are some of our suggestions:


Historic Buildings

  • Visit  Packwood House, a topiary garden, park, and Tudor home that have all been extensively restored. There is both indoor and outdoor seating available at their café, which is open and sells a variety of hot and cold meals and drinks. Dogs are welcome to join you on the patio's outdoor chairs, and water bowls are always nearby. Find out more at  https://www.nationaltrust.org.uk/packwood-house .


  • Visit  Baddesley Clinton and explore a private, cosy estate located in the Forest of Arden that has 500 years' worth of intriguing and unexpected tales.
