Discover The Heart of England

Discover The Heart of England

Stretching from Herefordshire at its southernmost right up to Derbyshire in the north, the Heart of England encompasses some of the most idyllic parts of England.

As well as being its heart, the area is also the soul of the true English countryside and spans some of the greenest counties in the UK. Hike through the scenic Malverns in the unspoilt landscape of rural Worcestershire or immerse yourself in local folklore as you ramble up to the Stiperstones in the Shropshire Hills.

Recite wherefore-art-thous as you learn the story of the Bard in his historical home of Stratford-upon-Avon or admire the famous thatched cottages of the Cotswolds as you ramble through exquisite countryside and rolling hills.
