Worcestershire is a county of variety. In the North West, you will see the industrial revolution towns of the West Midlands, with Victorian buildings and stretches of canals harking back to the later 19th Century. In the South of the county, the border with Gloucestershire sees the rolling hills and countryside synonymous with the familiar sights of the Cotswolds, and the border with Hereford containing a stretch of the Malvern Hills, area of outstanding natural beauty.
