Home of Peaky Blinders, Birmingham was called The City of Thousand Trades during the Industrial Revolution. Even now, its metropolitan area is the second-largest economy in the country, attracting people from all around the UK who search for job opportunities.
Second biggest city in the United Kingdom by population, Birmingham always brims with life and energy. Part of the reason might be a large population of young people who come to Birmingham to study in the universities. The city is also well-known for its cultural institutions, such as the Birmingham Royal Ballet, the Library of Birmingham, and Symphony Hall. Busy and vibrant, Birmingham has plenty to offer to its permanent residents and tourists from all around the world.
As you remember, Birmingham is the city of students and working people — out of 1.149 mln, 64.3% of the population in the city are those of working age. 22.7% are children, and 13.0% — retirees. Also, Birmingham is a very ethnically and religiously diverse city, as it has the largest Muslim, Buddhist, and Sikh community in the UK apart from London.
There are five main universities in Birmingham: University of Birmingham, University College Birmingham, Newman University, Aston University, and Birmingham City University. There are also campuses of other prominent universities in the city, both public and private, such as Open University and the University of Law. Of course, you can add to this list various colleges, primary and secondary schools — Birmingham has them in abundance.
Various areas of the city are well-connected to each other thanks to the broad network of buses and a light rail system. What’s more, being located in the West Midlands, Birmingham is a major hub when it comes to highways and railways — it is easy to get to any point of the UK from here! Even though the city does not have an underground metro system, you can enjoy alternative means of transport, such as a boat and waterbus, as Birmingham is all about canals!
The Jewellery Quarter is not only a manufacturer of 40% of the jewels made in the UK and an amazing place for those seeking a central location in Birmingham. The properties here might be a bit pricey, but you will not regret it!
