Great Britain - Birmingham, The Midlands & the Marches (Chapter)
This is the Birmingham, the Midlands & the Marches chapter from Lonely Planet’s Great Britain guidebook.
Few other places come so close to the dream of England as here, the country’s heart. If you’re searching for chocolate-box villages of wonky timbered houses and gracious stately homes that look like the last lord of the manor just clip-clopped out of the stables, you’ll find them here.
