West Midlands

The West Midlands are at the Heart of England. There are apple orchards in the west, thriving within beautiful rolling countryside, shaped by majestic rivers shepherded by celebrated cathedrals. Then there's a town dedicated to William Shakespeare, grand castles quietly yearning to be explored, busy market towns with timber-framed buildings rising in wonky fashion above meandering streets. Finally, amongst all this diversity you'll arrive at vibrant towns and cities rich in a heritage gained from the industrial revolution, which was given birth nearby. A charming region with star quality.
West Midlands includes Herefordshire, Shropshire, Staffordshire, Warwickshire, and Worcestershire.
