Worcestershire is a county in the West Midlands of England, merged with the neighbouring county of Herefordshire as Hereford and Worcester.
The City of Worcester is the largest county town. Other major towns in the county include Bromsgrove, Kidderminster and Redditch, divided into six administrative districts: Worcester, Redditch, Wychavon, Malvern Hills, Wyre Forest and Bromsgrove.
There are also several market towns: Malvern, Bewdley, Evesham, Droitwich Spa, Pershore, Tenbury Wells, Stourport-on-Severn and Upton-upon-Severn. The village of Hartlebury housed the Bishop of Worcester from the 13th century until 2007.
While a large proportion of the county is rural, the north-east of Herefordshire includes part of the industrial West Midlands.
