The home of Platinum Windows, birthplace of William Shakespeare, amongst other things, Warwickshire always has plenty going on and is full of attractive homes new and old. We’re more than familiar with supplying high quality home improvement products for use in such properties, but one common misconception we also hear is what Warwickshire is classified as. To help set the record straight once and for all, we’re going to answer the question “Is Warwickshire a city?”.
No. It’s a landlocked county.
Believe it or not, Warwickshire is indeed not a city, but rather a wider county that plays host to various towns. Though it might seem obvious, dubbing the location a city is an easy mistake to make, largely because there are none inside of it. The county is instead divided into five distinct districts, consisting of North Warwickshire, Nuneaton and Bedworth, Rugby, Warwick and Stratford-on-Avon. Going deeper once again, within these there are various towns such as Leamington Spa and Kenilworth.
Warwickshire is yet again unique in the fact that it is one of only 19 counties in England that are landlocked. In other words, it’s entirely enclosed by land, far away from any coastlines. Another reason for some confusion could be due to the many boundary changes undergone by the county throughout the years. However, Warwickshire has remained unchanged since 1974.
Warwick is THE county town of Warwickshire
Perhaps unsurprisingly, Warwickshire takes its county name from its hub town, Warwick. The town lies upon the River Avon which continues to flow further down throughout the South West, and is famous for its castle and popular university. Though located several miles North of Warwick proper, the titular University frequently ranks in the top 10.
