Living in Birmingham
Birmingham is the second largest in the UK yet, despite its size, “Brum” has a very down-to-Earth, friendly, local feel.
More than three million people have made Birmingham their home, and it’s easy to see why. Forget Spaghetti Junction; Birmingham actually has more green spaces than any other city in Europe – 571 parks to be exact – so there’s lots of outdoor space to enjoy with friends and family.
Birmingham’s also home to some of Britain’s iconic names, like Jaguar Land Rover, Cadburys, Led Zeppelin and Duran Duran – it even inspired scenes in Tolkien’s Lord of the Rings.
Birmingham benefits from the influence of a variety of different cultures. Its annual festivals in the Chinese Quarter, Irish Quarter and Gay Village attract people from all over the world, so living here you’ll have the chance to experience all this vibrant city has to offer.
