The Midlands of England are largely a conurbation consisting of a number of towns and counties, each of which is land-locked, although bounded by various rivers such as the Trent and the upper levels of the River Severn, providing plenty of scope for Midland luxury wedding venues to be found. Despite being a particularly large conurbation, not all of its many square miles is industrial or even urban: much of the area lies nestled among the Derbyshire hills and moorland and, even in the cities of the Midlands, there are plenty of green spaces and leisure areas, with many sturdy homes and faux castles making ideal settings for Midland luxury wedding venues.
The Midlands now consist of the unofficial authorities of East Midlands and West Midlands, as well as the Midland Metropolitan boroughs of Coventry, Dudley, Sandwell, Solihull, Walsall, Wolverhampton and the sprawl of Birmingham, this latter city considered to be the 55th most popular place to live in the world, where plenty of Midland luxury wedding venues can be found without the need to go further afield.
East Midlands consists of the counties of Derbyshire, with its county town of Derby; Nottinghamshire, with its county town of Nottingham; Leistershire, with its county town of Leicester; the tiny county of Rutland; Milton Keynes located in Northamptonshire; the town of Warwick in Warwickshire; Buckinghamshire, classed as one of the Home Counties; and Oxfordshire with its university town of Oxford. West Midlands consists of Wirral in the county of Cheshire; Staffordshire, with its pottery town of Stoke on Trent; Shropshire; Telford and Wrekin; Worcestershire; Herefordshire; and Gloucestershire.
In Staffordshire, for instance, there is a glorious 13th century castle, complete with its own scenic moat, all surrounded by pretty manicured gardens and parkland all of which is set amongst the gently rolling landscapes of Staffordshire country which is glorious at any time of the year. As a location for one of Midland luxury wedding venues, this stylish home, known as Caverswall Castle, is perfect. It was built in 1275 so has plenty of history to keep your guests enthralled for hours.
Perhaps Stratford-upon-Avon, the birthplace of William Shakespeare, might be what you had in mind when you were thinking of Midland luxury wedding venues. Billesley Manor is a 16th century manor house set amongstst 11 acres of lush Warwickshire countryside and as full of history as you would expect any Elizabethan manor house from the 16th century to be.
The ancestral home of Lord Byron, Colwick Hall is set amongst 60 acres of beautiful countryside, including an attractive lake and extensive woodlands. Colwick Hall is a Georgian mansion house, although the building actually dates back to the Saxon period in parts and is a Grade II listed building. It is near to Nottingham racecourse and just two miles from the center of Nottingham, making it relatively easy for guests to get to. The Grand Ballroom was built in 1776 and overlooks the lake, with plenty of room close by for a large marquee to be added for extra space.
This is just a taster of the very many luxury wedding venues that can be rented within the Midlands, UK. Since the Midlands covers so many miles of some of the loveliest and most historical lands in England, you can really take your time and explore this extensive area before making your final choice from the numerous Midland luxury wedding venues that best suits your needs and those of your guests.
