The Heart of England – Traditional and Cosmopolitan
The Heart of England captures the very essence of Englishness. Majestic yet unassuming, its countryside and traditions are old and quirky, yet its cities are vibrant and cosmopolitan.
Visit the beautiful Cotswolds in the South of the region with its picture perfect, honey–coloured English villages. The north offers the Staffordshire potteries and Shakespeare's Stratford–on–Avon. Close by lies the Black Country with art, crafts and modern architecture mixed with Victorian villages.
At the border of England and Wales, Herefordshire and Shropshire are a gourmet's delight with excellent restaurants, locally produced food and cider. While Worcestershire has churches, historic buildings, and acclaimed festivals and events.
And the city of Birmingham offers world–class culture, superb shopping, top attractions, fantastic nightlife, major events and exhibitions. For more information, check out the brand new campaign website at www.britainitsoutthere.com.
