Warwickshire used to include big urban towns such as Coventry, but now those have been sucked into the West Midlands it has a distinctly rural air, with urban excitement centred on Rugby, Royal Leamington Spa and Stratford Upon Avon.

The Warwickshire countryside is gentle and pretty, with the Cotswolds comprising some of the South of the county and the Peak District National Park just beyond the borders to the North. There are several attractive towns and settlements including Kenilworth, Polesworth and Wellesbourne. Places of historical interest include the spectacular Warwick Castle, the ancient ruined Kenilworth Castle and of course the birthplace of Shakespeare himself, Stratford upon Avon.

Demographics

The population of Warwickshire was estimated to be 546,000 in 2011. Around 60% are of working age, which matches the national average. Just over 90% describe themselves as white British, with only relatively small black and Asian communities concentrated mainly in towns such as Nuneaton and Royal Leamington Spa. In terms of prosperity, there is a lot of variation within the county, Nuneaton and Bedworth are the least affluent while Stratford upon Avon is the most.

Education

The grammar schools system still exists in two districts - Stratford upon Avon and Rugby - which means pupils need to sit the three-day eleven plus exam. If your child can pass the exam in these districts then they stand a chance of getting into an 'outstanding' secondary school. Other schools in the region vary. There are a high number of 'outstanding' schools, including the Kenilworth School and Sports Academy, Southam College and St Benedict's Catholic High School.

There are a number of notable public schools in the area, including Rugby School, which is one of the most prestigious independent schools in the country.

Transport

Several major motorways run through Warwickshire, including the M40, M6, M69, M1 and M45. The Chiltern Mainline from London to Birmingham has stops in Royal Leamington Spa, Warwick and Hatton. The West Coast Mainline has two routes to Coventry and Birmingham and to the North East. It stops at Nuneaton, Atherstone and Polesworth.

Amenities and Shopping

For major shopping trips the nearest large cities are Coventry and Birmingham. Leamington Spa on the other hand is a large enough urban centre to have the major chain stores as well as supermarkets, delis, boutiques, music and book shops.

Stratford upon Avon is probably the most attractive town in the area, and certainly the biggest pull for tourists. The theatre at Stratford upon Avon is home to the Royal Shakespeare Company and puts on major productions each year. Stratford upon Avon has a lively town centre with a mixture of chain stores and independent boutiques.

Nuneaton features the Ropewalk Shopping Centre, which has national stores such as BHS, the Body Shop, H&M and Monsoon. The Abbeygate shopping centre in the middle of Nuneaton also features a wide range of stores. Warwick on the other hand is a pretty market town with beautiful, mediaeval streets and plenty of tearooms, cafes, restaurants and small shops.
