A City in the Heart of the United Kingdom

Located in the heart of the country, Birmingham sits at the center of the ‘Midlands Engine’ and is one of the key drivers of growth across the UK. The city boasts one of the most productive and mixed economies in the country and, with more green space than any other city in Europe, it’s fortunes are on an upward trajectory.

Birmingham benefits from a large international airport and stepped into the spotlight as an essential part of the United Kingdom’s high-speed rail network, HS2. With delivery plans for the new HS2 Curzon Street station now firmly in place, this will significantly decrease journey times to London and help make cities in the North more accessible. 

The scope of regenerative opportunity in Birmingham is immense. New homes, improved transport links and a thriving business community are all helping to put Birmingham on the map. Now, with the prospect of hosting the 2022 Commonwealth Games firmly on the horizon, Birmingham is cementing its position as a truly world-class city.
