The Midlands Vacation Packages


The English Midlands are often overlooked by travelers, but there are many reasons why you should visit. It is full of history; many of its cities were founded over two millennia ago, making them some of the oldest cities in England. The Midlands are the birthplace of the Industrial Revolution, which, by the dawn of the nineteenth century, had helped to cement the British Empire`s role as the most influential country in the world. That industrial might is still evident today as factories dot the landscape. In the West Midlands, you will find Birmingham, the United Kingdom`s second most populous city, as well as the cities of Coventry and Wolverhampton. In the East Midlands, you will get the chance to visit such important cities as Nottingham and Leicester. No matter where you decide to go, The Midlands are a great place to explore.
