Scenic suburbs, splendid city.
For those with a preference for the vibrancy and bustle of city life, St George’s Place is perfectly situated near the centre of Birmingham with easy access to concerts, theatres, galleries and shops. The desirable and peaceful suburb of Edgbaston has several bars, a renowned restaurant and shops close at hand. Not one but three nature conservation areas are nearby, together with the Edgbaston Reservoir and the Botanical Gardens – some 15 acres of superb gardens with one of the finest collections of plants in the Midlands.
With roots that extend all the way back to the Domesday Book, historical Edgbaston was also home to J.R.R. Tolkien during his teenage years, with Perrott’s Folly and the Waterworks Tower said to have provided inspiration for part of his The Lord of the Rings trilogy.
