Although it lacks access to the sea, West Midlands has no shortage of tourist attractions, including unspoiled natural wonders, modern cities, and sprawling rural areas. The region’s main urban center is Birmingham, the second-largest city in the UK, offering some of the best nightlife and culinary options in this part of the country. Although heavily populated and industrialized, this region abounds in hidden rural corners, where the charms of old England endure right alongside modern cafes, pubs, and shops. Consider venturing beyond the region’s big cities during your holiday to tour the numerous well-preserved stately houses, lush parks and gardens, and quiet villages that dot the countryside.
