Southern Central England
Southern Central England is special not just for its many opportunities to enjoy nature on foot, bicycle or watercraft, but for the flora and fauna that surround such endeavors. The spectacle and history of this region's sights and sounds have international reputations.
Herefordshire is a truly resplendent area where you can surround yourself with shades of green in the summer and spring, or golds and reds in the fall and winter. The Black and White Trail isn't to be missed; it takes guests through the timber-framed houses that are a distinct part of this county. Markets, shops and bistros feature impressive wares and tempting cuisine. Caves, castles and abbeys round out the attractions of this robust county.
There is sensuous natural beauty in Worcestershire that makes a perfect setting for hiking, horseback riding, water sports or hang gliding. The eight-mile Malvern Hills ridge is perfect for walking but offers a bit of an aerobic test with its mid-range heights. The unspoiled Vale of Evesham is home to Droitwich, the country's only brine spa, as well as Georgian architecture at Pershore and countless villages including Broadway, a Cotswald populace considered one of the most picturesque places in all of England.
While stately homes, castles and monuments add grandeur to Warwickshire, there's also a spark of adventure that explains how such a land could produce such diverse figures as William Shakespeare, Lady Godiva and Sir Frank Whittle (inventor of the jet engine). There's marksmanship, archery, off-road racing, water sports and rock climbing. For the relaxation-minded, there are a number of spas and exclusive hotels. Ancient churches and archaeological finds harken to the centuries of history that make up Warwickshire's past.
Diverse and distinctive, Southern Central England offers both seclusion and convenience, as well as simultaneous history and modern flourishes. It's the perfect destination for a traveler seeking the best of Britain.
