Discover some of the county’s popular landmarks and attractions.
Stratford-upon-Avon might be regarded as a must-visit destination for everyone – so if you move in nearby, it should be high on your weekend trip priority list. Evocative old timbered buildings are as they were in the days of the Bard, whose birthplace you can pay homage to.
Much of Warwick’s old-world charm comes from its beautiful and surprisingly complete 14th Century castle. Few examples of medieval military architecture are so well preserved. Aside from the castle, there’s the breathtaking Mill Garden, and the Lord Leycester Hospital, the Collegiate Church of St Mary, where the Earls of Warwick was laid to rest.
The Romans first harnessed the springs at Leamington Spa, although the ruins they left behind were not discovered until 1784. The town became a popular spa resort, before falling on hard times by the 1840s. The town is packed with beautiful Regency architecture, including the must-see Royal Pump Rooms.
Kenilworth is home to another famous castle – Kenilworth Castle – although this one wasn’t quite as well-preserved as Warwick’s. However, these vast ruins are still fascinating, not least because they played host to so many historical events, including the removal of Edward II from the throne.
Warwickshire has a proud history of educational excellence, and as such is home to some of the nation's best schools, sixth forms and academies. Top-ranking schools include Stratford Girls' Grammar School, King Edward VI School, Lawrence Sheriff School and Alcester Academy.
Residents of Warwickshire enjoy excellent transport links, including two international airports (Birmingham and Coventry). The county is also transected by three motorways (M40, M42 and M45), and its towns are connected to the national rail network (Warwick to central Birmingham takes just 40 minutes).
Warwickshire enjoys a full range of NHS services, GP surgeries, opticians and dentists. There are also private options such as the Nuffield Health Warwickshire Hospital.
