Heart of England Tourist Board

This region, which includes Shakespeare's country and the Cotswolds, forms a large part of central England. Stratford-upon-Avon is the home of Shakespeare and is an excellent point from which to visit other historic towns in the area. The Cotswolds, to the south, are famous for their beautiful honey-coloured villages and their stately homes and gardens. In the north, Staffordshire is famous for its potteries and for the open hills of the Peak District. The "Marches" provide a total contrast: a land of black and white villages, this area offers a wide range of sporting activities. The city of Birmingham, in the centre of the region, boasts good theatres and shopping facilities. Its international airport has direct flights to over 40 European cities, with onward connections world-wide.
