Famously the home county of William Shakespeare, who hailed from Stratford-upon-Avon, Warwickshire is crammed with historic sites, castles and the beautifully green rolling fields and forests of the English countryside. In the town of Warwick itself you’ll be able to explore some inspiring historic sites, from the medieval Collegiate Church of St Mary to the magnificent Warwick Castle.
