Central England encompasses a wide area including Britain’s second largest city, Birmingham, and William Shakespeare’s home town of Stratford-upon-Avon. This diverse area stretches from the rolling hills of Shropshire, bordering Wales on the west, right across to the meandering waterways of Norfolk on the east coast and to many it is known as The Midlands. Central England abounds with rolling hills and luscious green valleys, where rivers slowly meander to form a rich verdant and fertile landscape. This central area stretches from the industrious Staffordshire and Peak District to the edge of Wales and down to the affluent south and includes the counties of Northamptonshire, Rutland, Shropshire, Derbyshire, Leicestershire, Lincolnshire, Herefordshire and Nottinghamshire.
Central England is certainly known for its dramatic countryside with the Peak District National Park being a famous holiday destination for climbing, walking, and cycling holidays as well as narrow boat holidays on the Grand Union Canal.
