Click picture for a brief overview

Warwickshire is one of the most visited counties in England. Most tourists tend to head straight to Stratford-upon-Avon, an ancient market town situated on the banks of the River Avon where Shakespeare's birthplace still stands to this day. Stratford is also home to one of the most photographed cottages in the country, Anne Hathaway's cottage, where she lived before marrying Shakespeare in 1582.

Just to the north of Stratford lies another popular tourist attraction; Warwick Castle. Originally designed as a motte-and-bailey castle by the Normans in 1068, this is now one of the most intact and magnificant castles in the whole country having miracously escaped destruction during the English Civil War.


Within a hop, skip and jump of Warwick Castle lies Kenilworth Castle, a ruined but equally impressive fortress which was once a favourite holiday destination for Queen Elizabeth I
