The West Midlands is, to be precise, the western area of Central England. It is rather a highly populated area of England but it still retains a fair amount of natural beauty – particularly in the rural areas of the West Midlands. West Midlands consists of the following regions: Shropshire, Herefordshire, Staffordshire, West Midlands County, Worcestershire, and Worwickshire. The West Midlands contains the following main cities: Birmingham, Lichfield, Coventry, Hereford, Stoke-on-Trent and Worcester. Despite it being rather an industrial area full of busy cities, it does have a lot of beauty that is perhaps ignored because of the quantity of bustling cities. Worcestershire and Warwickshire particularly boast lovely areas full of beauty and nature. However, there is definitely a lot to see here in the West Midlands. Most people come to see Stratford upon Avon, the birthplace of Shakespeare. Other places to see are the castles in Ludlow, Warwick, and Kenilworth; the Bull ring Shopping Centre in Birmingham; and the Ironbridge, which was the first built in the world. What makes the West Midlands a great place to live in also, is that it is close by to other major areas of England. You can access many areas of England easily from the West Midlands and you are not too far away from the major cities.
