The West Midland are home to the City of Birmingham, the City of Coventry, and the City of Wolverhampton, as well as Dudley, Sandwell, Solihull, and Walsall, so there if plenty to do on you next caravan holiday! This region is ideal for caravaners who want to shop as shopping is a real attraction in this area, with everything from chic little designer boutiques to major department stores, malls and markets. West Midlands County is one of the most heavily urbanised counties in the UK, and therefore has easily accessible roads, great for driving along in the caravan or motorhome and has an abundance of caravan and camping sites.
Although the County is mostly urbanised, there is plenty of green space. If you’re a caravaner looking for greenery and the outdoors then the city Coventry is the place to go on your caravan trip. Separated from the West Midlands conurbation by a stretch of green belt land which expands roughly 15 miles (known as the Meriden Gap) ensures that the area is still in touch with its rural roots as well as allowing caravaners to explore the outdoors. Caravaners keen for some fresh air can walk Barr Beacon, the Sandwell Valley and the highest hill in the West Midlands, Turners Hill. At 271 m (889 ft, the hill is a Site of Special Scientific Interest and a definite for caravan holiday makers.

As a result, it is one of the largest urban parks in Europe, and the largest outside of a capital city in Europe - the park also has National Nature Reserve status.
