Worcestershire is a largely rural county, with four main towns – Bromsgrove, Kidderminster, Redditch and Worcester – lying between the Cotswolds, the Welsh border and Birmingham. There are four further substantial market towns, Droitwich, Evesham, Malvern and Pershore.
There are a number of high-quality schools across the county and the major motorway network of the M42, M5 and M6 provide excellent links to the rest of the West Midlands and beyond. Local leisure facilities are well developed and the area has easy access to Birmingham and the South West.
