Solihull's story is as compelling as it is engrossing. The town served as the administrative centre for the metropolitan county of West Midlands and has a population of approximately 126,577 as of the 2021 Census. Not only the birthplace of the Land Rover marque, Solihull also boasts a robust equestrian scene and is notably the home of the British eventing team.

Positioned 8 miles southeast of Birmingham, 13 miles west of Coventry, and 18 miles northwest of Warwick; Solihull also enjoys a close proximity to other destinations worth exploring. Its name was derived from its parish church, St Alphege, sitting atop a 'soily' hill and its land, which was once cloaked in the ancient Forest of Arden.

Visitors to Solihull can journey through the town's historical connections; from the 1st century BC settlement at Berry Mound to its Roman, Anglo Saxon and medieval chapters. Associations can be traced to significant events such as the Epiphany Rising and the Gunpowder Plot, and notable families including the Despencers and the Throckmortons. Deeper into the town, one could explore highlights such as the red sandstone parish church of St. Alphege and the ruins of Hobs Moat Castle.
