The landlocked, non-metropolitan county of Warwickshire sits in the West Midlands region of England. Like many English counties, Warwickshire offers both country relaxation and city excitement, along with an interesting and historical heritage and culture.
Warwickshire country is rich with history, having played an important role during England's timeline, most notably including the age of the Roman Empire, the English Civil War and the Gunpowder Plot of 1605. Notoriously, Warwickshire is famous as being the birthplace of William Shakespeare and the renowned Victorian novelist, George Eliot.
Dripping in history, the National Trust has a number of charming houses and gardens within Warwickshire, including the medieval moated manor house of Baddesley Clinton and the spectacular Coughton Court, associated with the Gunpowder Plot.
Larger tourist attractions in Warwickshire centre on Warwick Castle and the Royal Shakespeare Company. All year round there are also many smaller events to enjoy such as village fetes, children's activities, adventure sports and riffle ranges, and community events suitable for all.
