The English county of Warwickshire is divided into five districts: North Warwickshire, Nuneaton & Bedworth, Rugby, Warwick and Stratford-on-Avon. In the north and centre of the county, where the majority of the population live, you’ll find towns like Atherstone, Bedworth, Nuneaton (Warwickshire’s largest town) and (the birthplace of rugby football Rugby), while prosperous towns like Royal Leamington Spa, Stratford-upon-Avon, Kenilworth, Alcester and Warwick (the county town) lie in the centre and west of the region. Warwickshire is famed for being the birthplace of George Eliot and, of course, William Shakespeare. Shakespeare’s houses and gardens are among the county’s most loved attractions, along with Kenilworth Castle and Elizabethan Garden.
Warwickshire plays host to many a great restaurant, such as the Michelin starred Dining Room at Mallory Court Hotel, the Grand Union and The Orchard Restaurant. There’s always plenty going on in Warwickshire’s gastronomic world, including food and drink festivals at Leamington Spa and Rugby.
