West Midlands, Visitor & Tourism Guide

Shakespeare and Darwin, the Industrial Revolution and Natural Beauty
Birthplace of William Shakespeare, birthplace of Charles Darwin, birthplace of the Industrial Revolution. Remarkably beautiful, remarkably well stocked with exquisite historical buildings, remarkably good fun. As a region, it doesn't get the coverage it deserves as it's a special place.

To the west of central England. Borders Wales, South West England, South East England, East Midlands and North West England.

The West Midlands consists of the counties of Herefordshire, Worcestershire, Warwickshire, Shropshire and Staffordshire. Pretty much in its centre is Birmingham, the second largest city in the UK by population.

Peak District and Cotswolds
The Peak District National Park extends down into Staffordshire in the north east of the region. There are plenty of other Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The Cotswolds, Malvern Hills, Shropshire Hills and Cannock Chase all provide exceptional walking, natural beauty, top places to stay for either a weekend break or longer holiday.

The West Midlands has plenty of world class attractions from its UNESCO World Heritage Site at Ironbridge to its amazing castles such as Warwick, from its art galleries to its cathedrals. There's Shakespeare's birthplace and Ann Hathaway's Cottage, the region's glorious canals and Hereford's 'Mappa Mundi'.

Places in which to base yourself
There are so many extraordinary places to visit that it's difficult to know where to start. Shrewsbury, Ludlow, Hereford, Gloucester, Ross-on-Wye are all fine places. As are Stratford-upon-Avon, Warwick, Worcester and Ironbridge. For hustle and bustle, there's Birmingham, for intimacy there's Broadway in the Cotswolds.
