Events in West Midlands

The West Midlands' legacy of manufacturing is represented by its range of museums. There are heritage railways galore, such as the Severn Valley Railway, as well as transport museums and major centres such as the Black Country Museum, the RAF Museum at Cosford and Birmingham's Thinktank science museum.

The Steam Heritage Guide includes contact details, opening times and description of preservation and heritage attractions in the West Midlands area including Shropshire, Staffordshire, West Midlands, Worcestershire, Herefordshire and Warwickshire.
