If you rent a static caravan in the West Midlands for your next holiday, there are some delightful places to visit including Shrewsbury, Stoke-on-Trent, Worcester, Hereford, Stratford upon Avon and Gloucester. Birmingham is the main city and a hub of industry yet the surrounding areas form a landscape of rugged hills, moors and valleys.
Spending your holiday in the West Midlands allows you to enjoy the English countryside yet be close enough to the most amazing shopping experience and nightlife. Birmingham is within easy commuting distance from the various counties, mostly motorway drive or via an extensive network of public transport including buses and trains.
In and around Birmingham you will see some of the most beautifully landscaped gardens to be found in the UK; castles that wouldn’t look out of place in a fairy tale book and many Roman city ruins. For example, one of the most popular tourist attractions in the West Midlands is Kenilworth Castle, once home to Robert Dudley who Queen Elizabeth I loved so much. Dudley had the castle built in 1575 as an ornate and luxurious palace where his Queen would be more than happy to stay, and walk around her Elizabethan Garden.
Another favourite with families and tourists alike is Witley Court which is a 19th century mansion surrounded by the most magnificent estate, now owned by English Heritage. Within the perfectly landscaped gardens there are several large fountains which have been restored over the years and are truly something to see. If you like gardening you will certainly be able to pick up some ideas from Witley Court.
Birmingham city centre, with an annual turnover more than £2 billion, is one of the largest retail centres in Great Britain, and one of the country’s most lucrative shopping centres. Many large department stores have chosen to open their doors in Birmingham including Debenhams, Selfridges and House of Frazer.
40 per cent of all jewellery in the UK is produced in the City’s Jewellery Quarter. And of course, we all know the joy of Cadbury’s chocolate!
The West Midlands, as well as having excellent rail and road links, is served by a number of domestic and international airports including West Midlands International, Birmingham, East Midlands and Coventry airports, so whether you are flying for business or pleasure flights are easy to find and airports easily accessible.
