Warwickshire is a traditional county in central England.

Geography & Economy

Birmingham Inner Relief Road

Warwickshire runs from north of Watling Street down to the Cotswolds, although it is little known for specific geographical features. The north of the county contains the industrial cities of Birmingham and Coventry, whilst much of the rest of the county is rural. Birmingham is the largest administrative area by population in the UK, although the city's suburbs stretch over the county boundary into Staffordshire and Worcestershire. The city was an early industrial town and still an important centre for manufacturing and administration. Coventry was important in the Middle Ages and later grew to be a centre of the motor industry; Jaguar are still based in the area. Tourism is also important: the county town of Warwick is known for its castle whilst nearby Leamington Spa grew because of its pump rooms (the town has now diversified into the video game industry). Stratford-upon-Avon is one of the country's leading tourist destinations owing to its Shakespeare connections.

Roads

The A3400 in Henley-in-Arden

Warwickshire has a good road network, with the majority of roads radiating from Birmingham or Coventry. The A5 in the north of the county is the main exception; however, although this road follows the Roman Watling Street it was only given its number for administrative purposes: Telford's Holyhead Road ran through the two cities. Highways England maintain the county's motorways (with the exception of the A38(M) which is non-trunk) as well as three other cross-country routes: the A5, A46 and A45 east of Coventry. They also maintain a short stretch of A45 and A446 near Birmingham Airport. Most non-trunk roads within the county are maintained by Warwickshire County Council. Birmingham and Coventry City Councils maintain their own areas, with Solihull MBC between the two. Staffordshire County Council maintains a small area near Tamworth. M6 J6, better known as Spaghetti Junction, lies to the north of Birmingham; despite its notoriety it is well-signed and easy to navigate.
