To visit Warwickshire is to immerse yourself in centuries of English heritage and culture, from Warwick Castle and Roman Alcester, to Shakespeare's Stratford-upon-Avon and the proud sporting history of Rugby.
Simply choose one of Warwickshire's many unusual places to stay, and get ready to dive right in!
It goes without saying that this is the county in which to experience the true Shakespeare's England. Watch a Royal Shakespeare Company play, then stroll through Stratford-upon-Avon's authentic Elizabethan streets.
The county town of Warwick is lively and buzzing; a unique mix of the historic and contemporary. Visit St. John's House museum to discover more about the town's fascinating past, then perhaps take a turn through the scenic Victorian rose garden at Warwick Castle.
Head for creative Coventry to learn more about legend of Lady Godiva, and to take in the finest medieval Guildhall in England. Or maybe you'd prefer travelling to the imposing red sandstone Kenilworth Castle for a spectacular slice of history.
One of only three English towns to be granted the prefix ‘Royal', Leamington Spa is filled with Regency architecture and vibrant shopping opportunities alike. Oh, and if you're a tennis fan, you may be interested in the fact that the world's first tennis club was formed right here.
Sporting heaven is also found in Rugby, of course - yet there are many other charms besides being the birthplace of rugby football. Follow the unique heritage trail to discover more, or wander through the Rugby Art Gallery and Museum for a culture hit.
With so much heritage, culture and majestic scenery to experience, you may well find yourself returning to Warwickshire more than once.
