The Heart of England, the Midlands was the birthplace of the Industrial Revolution and sites such as Ironbridge Gorge can take you back into the history of the area. To step back further in time, a visit to Stratford upon Avon is a must for any visitor to the region, with Shakespeare plays performed regularly at the Swan Theatre. Visit the region’s regenerated shopping capital, Birmingham, the vibrant centre of Nottingham and the beautiful flat countryside of Shropshire, Leicestershire, and Lincolnshire. The Midlands is criss-crossed with canals, and these are a great way to explore what this sometimes underrated part of England has to offer.
