The county that almost got abolished by its neighbouring counties, Middlesex has a rich history that will forever strike the curious minds of local and foreign tourists alike. It is found in the south-eastern part of England, covering lands north of the River Thames stretching out 3mi to the east and 17mi west of the City of London. This almost forgotten county is one of the historical counties of England and it includes the City of London in its regime. Every 16th of May, the county celebrates its own very special day, marking remembrance to the battle in Albuhera where men of the Middlesex Regiment aided the British and Wellington against Napoleon's army. The battle cry of their commanding officer was, "Die hard my men, die hard".
Inspiring many forms of art such as Sharpe starring Sean Bean and many pop hits such as London Calling by The Clash and West End Girls by The Pet Shop Boys, Middlesex is home to many famous artists and other forms of art.
