West Midlands

Looking for things to do in the West Midlands? The region is packed with dazzling theatres, colossal exhibition centres, Balti restaurants, and shiny shopping malls. Shrines in Coventry include super-size-sports and music arenas and cathedral ruins alike. With endless ancient woodlands, heaths, and wetlands to explore, it isn’t hard to see how this place inspired JRR Tolkien to write The Lord of the Rings. With county cricket, Premier League football, and rugby union alongside Europe’s biggest library, both sports fans and bookworms will be in heaven. The West Midlands is also home to Cadbury’s chocolate factory where you can taste the chocolate fresh from the production line.
