Without doubt this is one of the most history-laden counties in the Heart of England! Today, Warwickshire is a hairpin-shaped land mass, looping around Coventry and Birmingham, which were transplanted away from here to the West Midlands in 1974. What remains is a diverse selection classical towns and cities. Places like Royal Leamington Spa, Rugby, the capital Warwick (plus its famous castle), and William Shakespeare's birthplace of Stratford-upon-Avon all welcome you warmly.

These, and all other major settlements, are largely confined to the middle of the county, but the sparsely populated regions in the north and south are equally as attractive. They include places such as the Forest of Arden (the setting for As You Like It), the rolling hills of the Burton Dassett Country Park in the south east and some prime parts of the Cotswolds as well.
Travelling around this scenery is made all the more pleasurable by the frequent old country houses that dot the landscape. Ragley Hall near Alcester is regarded as one of the great English estates. Also there is Coombe Abbey, an atmospheric monastery and gardens heralding from the 12th century. These are just 2 of many to look out for.
A special mention also has to go to Lunt Fort, just outside of Coventry. A complete reconstruction of the Roman stronghold that once stood here. It played a key part in the Empire and today stages entertaining battle re-enactments on the surrounding grounds.
