Discover the West Midlands

Home of the Birmingham 2022 Commonwealth Games and the UK's 2021 City of Culture.

One dramatic destination, many twists to discover

One heart of the UK, many ways to explore

One region, many worlds

Soaring peaks, Peaky Blinders, Baltis and Black Sabbath. When it comes to the West Midlands, there are many worlds to discover. Hear the roar of the crowd at a Premier League game, or stroll beneath endless skies in the Shropshire Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Immerse yourself in exhibitions galore in Coventry, UK City of Culture, or follow in the footsteps of the Bard himself at Shakespeare's birthplace in Stratford-upon-Avon. Evolve your signature style as you shop 'til you drop in Birmingham, or discover the secrets of evolution in Shrewsbury, birthplace of Darwin.

All eyes will be on Birmingham this summer, as the region hosts the 2022 Commonwealth Games but sport is just the beginning. There's much more to discover in the West Midlands and beyond.
