The Leicestershire region

The Heart of England Region covers: Gloucestershire, Herefordshire, Worcestershire, Shropshire, Staffordshire, Warwickshire, Birmingham, Coventry and the Black Country. Situated in the middle of the country, visiting the Heart offers the opportunity to discover what really makes England tick.

Central England has many places to explore. The Peak District National Park in Derbyshire and Sherwood Forest in Nottinghamshire offer some of the best scenery in the area. The pretty limestone villages along the River Great Ouse in Bedfordshire, as well as the famous Woburn Abbey with its safari park are all popular with visitors to Central England.

Take some time to visit the Cotswolds - beautiful countryside dotted with honey-coloured villages with limestone cottages - or historic Stratford-upon-Avon. The typical English landscape of the Malvern Hills is delightful. Discover film locations for Harry Potter and places that inspired the likes of Tolkien, George Eliot and William Shakespeare.
