Situated in the heart of England, the Midlands offers a huge variety of landscapes and places to enjoy and explore.
The start of summer is an ideal time to enjoy the colours and smells of our gardens.
Get out the blanket and basket and pick somewhere special for a picnic.
Or make the most of long days and open spaces for some summer fun.
