The West Midlands is situated in the heart of England. The big cities and towns of Birmingham, Wolverhampton, Coventry and Walsall, occupy a central position within the region.

With a population of about 5.3 million people, the region accounts for a 9% share of the UK's population. The city of Birmingham alone accounts for just over 1 million people. Birmingham attracts 22 million visitors a year who spend £760 million. The region is largest shopping area second only to London.

Travel to and from the region is easily accessible as it lies at the centre of the country's rail and road network (M5, M6, M42 & M40).
