The West Midlands is a geographical term describing the western half of central England, known as the Midlands. It is also known by its historical name of Mercia.

There is some confusion in the use of the term "West Midlands", as the name is also used for the much smaller West Midlands county, and is still used by various organisations within that area such as West Midlands Police and West Midlands Fire Service.

The West Midlands Region is sometimes considered to spread as far as Cheshire, Gloucestershire and Oxfordshire, but these are not part of the official region.

The highest point in the region is Black Mountain, at 703 metres.

Local government

The official region consists of the following subdivisions:

Ceremonial county County/ unitary Districts
Shropshire Shropshire † Bridgnorth, Bridgnorth, North Shropshire, Oswestry, Shrewsbury and Atcham, South Shropshire
Telford and Wrekin
Staffordshire Staffordshire † Cannock Chase, East Staffordshire, Lichfield, Newcastle-under-Lyme, South Staffordshire, Stafford, Staffordshire Moorlands, Tamworth,
Warwickshire † North Warwickshire, Nuneaton and Bedworth, Rugby, Stratford-on-Avon, Warwick
West Midlands * Birmingham, Coventry, Dudley, Sandwell, Solihull, Walsall, Wolverhampton,
Worcestershire † Bromsgrove, Malvern Hills, Redditch, Worcester, Wychavon, Wyre Forest

Key: shire county = † | metropolitan county = *
