A county in the west midlands, Worcestershire has the benefit of both rural areas and townships. The great outdoors provides walking, cycling, and fishing opportunities, or visitors can explore the many historic houses, churches, parks and gardens. There's also the chance to travel on the Severn Valley Railway or go to one of the many county shows. Visiting the towns means you can experience theatres, galleries, museums and also do some shopping.
