‘Quintessentially English’ is probably the best way to describe the county of Warwickshire, which lies in the heart of England and is particularly proud of its illustrious heritage. From exquisite stately homes, exclusive Warwickshire Hotels, and medieval castles, the county has an abundance of attractions. It is also well served by public transport, with frequent bus and train services from London and Birmingham.
With its charming Tudor architecture, delightful boutiques and fantastic country-style pubs, Stratford-upon-Avon is often touted as a ‘must-see’ destination for people travelling across Britain. This vibrant riverside town of medieval streets and wooden-beamed houses is also the birthplace of William Shakespeare, and is appropriately home to the world-renowned Royal Shakespeare Company Theatre.
Warwick is most noted for its enchanting 11th-century castle, which is one of England's grandest medieval landmarks, although this was converted into a country house in later years. The building was redesigned in the 12th and 14th centuries and overlooks the scenic River Avon and beautiful grounds that were designed by the eminent landscaper Lancelot 'Capability' Brown.
Royal Leamington Spa
Blessed with majestic Georgian architecture and handsome Warwickshire hotels, Royal Leamington Spa, as the name would suggest, became a popular spa town in the early 19th-century. It is still home to the famous Royal Pump Rooms, which was the most popular spa in the town, although the Grade II listed building is now an art museum and gallery.
One of the most popular family attractions in Warwickshire, the Ragley Hall country estate is home to an excellent children's adventure playground, and the impressive Jerwood Sculpture Park, which marked its 10th anniversary in 2014. The estate also features attractive landscaped grounds, a splendid boating lake, and the grand 18th century Ragley Hall house.
Dating back to the 16th century, Charlecote Park is one of England's most charismatic country houses and has been the home of the Lucy family for more than 750 years. The estate has been featured in the BBC programme 'Antiques Roadshow' and includes a special deer park.
