Warwickshire in Brief
The county of Warwickshire - Shakespeare country - lies in the heart of England and is a one of England's most historic counties with the splendid mediaeval castles of Warwick Castle and Kenilworth. The county is only 2 hours from London and 30 minutes from Birmingham International Airport. Warwickshire (from the Anglo-Saxon meaning "The farm by a river dam") was split in 1974 when Birmingham, England's second largest city was relocated in West Midlands. Warwickshire covers an area of over 750 square miles and has a population of about half a million.
