West Midlands Certificated Locations

The second most populous county in England, the West Midlands is home to cities such as Birmingham, Wolverhampton and Coventry, as well as quieter country towns and villages.

As you'd expect from such a roll call, this is a great place to head to on a British break because there's simply so much to do for all ages.

You can check out exhibitions on everything from gardening to scrapbooking at Birmingham's NEC, or sample chocolate straight from the factory at Cadbury World in Bourneville.

Dudley has the spectacular Merry Hill Shopping Centre and a castle, while Coventry boasts a cathedral and a moving story of becoming the target of Nazi aggression during the Second World War.

There are also acres of woodland, wetland and moors to get out and explore in should you be more the peaceful, outdoorsy type.

Don't miss sampling some of the local foods either, because the West Midlands has dishes to rival anywhere else in Europe - particularly if you love curry.
