Places to visit in Warwickshire

Visit Warwickshire to revel in the heart of Shakespeare’s England. In Stratford-upon-Avon, the theatres of the Royal Shakespeare Company welcome you to witness one of the Bard’s famous plays live. See signature motte-and-bailey forts and romantic Elizabethan love nests with gatehouses and towers. Miles of canals and stairway locks beckon you for pub lunches and picnics. Or step back to the Middle Ages in Warwick with streets overhung by timber-framed houses and an imposing castle. Royal Leamington Spa is home to the Heritage Motor Centre where you can see England’s connection to the motor industry, while Coventry’s medieval cathedral and 14th-century Guildhall are definitely worth a visit. Warwickshire ticks all the boxes when it comes to history lessons.
