Warwickshire (Shortened to Warks) is a landlocked non-metropolitan county in the West Midlands region of England. The county town is Warwick, although the largest town is Nuneaton. The county is famous for being the birthplace of William Shakespeare and George Eliot.

The county is divided into five districts of North Warwickshire, Nuneaton & Bedworth, Rugby, Warwick and Stratford-on-Avon. It is bordered by Leicestershire to the northeast, Staffordshire to the northwest, Worcestershire and the West Midlands to the west, Northamptonshire to the east and southeast, Gloucestershire to the southwest and Oxfordshire to the south.

Canals in Warwickshire include: The Grand Union Canal, which runs through Leamington and Warwick and onwards to Birmingham. The restored Saltisford Canal Arm is close to the centre of Warwick, and is now a short branch of the Grand Union Canal. The Saltisford Canal Trust have restored most of the surviving canal, which is now the mooring for colourful narrowboats and a waterside park open to the public. The Coventry Canal which runs through the north of the county from Coventry through Bedworth, Nuneaton, Atherstone, and Polesworth, and then onwards to Tamworth. The Stratford-upon-Avon Canal which runs from the Grand Union west of Warwick to Stratford. The Ashby-de-la-Zouch Canal passes briefly through Warwickshire from a junction with the Coventry Canal at Bedworth. The Oxford Canal, which runs from near Coventry and then eastwards around Rugby, and then through the rural south of the county towards Oxford.

The River Avon is navigable from just north of Stratford. The River Stour is a tributary of the Avon. Other rivers include the Tame, Bourne, Arrow, Cole, Dene, Swift and Sherbourne. Lakes, ponds and streams abound for the game and coarse angler.
