The chances are you’ve probably heard of Warwick. Despite being a fairly small and humble county town, it has a reputation for culture and charm with a number of hugely popular UK attractions at arm’s reach. Tourism brings almost 4 million people to the district every single year, with both national and international visitors taking advantage of everything our quaint market town has to offer. So, where exactly is Warwick?
Where Is Warwick?
Located in the heart of the Midlands, Warwick is the county town of Warwickshire, just 9 miles from Coventry and 19 miles from Birmingham, the UK’s second biggest city after London.
Warwick is adjoined to Leamington Spa and Whitnash and boasts heaps of historic character spanning back to the Medieval, Georgian and Stuart eras. While the Great Fire of Warwick in 1694 caused devastating widespread destruction, hidden gems of history remain and it was rebuilt throughout the 18th century. The population has more than doubled since the 1960s, but this growth took longer than other towns as Warwick was hardly touched by the Industrial Revolution.
Sitting in the centre of the UK makes Warwick easily accessible from all across the country. Being just minutes from the M40 means that neighbouring hot spots, like Stratford-upon-Avon and Warwick University, are only a short car ride away.
