The county of Worcestershire, although once 1974 joined to Herefordshire as the county of Hereford and Worcester, is completely dissimilar to its neighbour to the west.  Whereas Herefordshire is a border county and today mostly rural, Worcestershire was always a midlands county and is today in the north quite industrial.  The prettiest parts of the county are along the Severn Valley and the border with Herefordshire where the Malvern Hills supplied the greatest English composer, Sir Edward Elgar (born near Worcester), with much of his inspiration.

It is also not a county well-endowed with Castles.  The best of these, Dudley, is in a peculiar detached part of the county, surrounded on all sides by Staffordshire (and today in the West Midlands county).
