ABOUT BIRMINGHAM

Birmingham is a real gem! Excellent restaurants, good shopping, exciting nightlife and an architectural icon have transformed perceptions of the city. Last but not least - the landscape which inspired JRR Tolkien to write The Lord of theRings.

Like many other cities, Birmingham has a link with the Roman Empire. The city was mentioned as far back as 1086 in the Doomsday Book, and developed into an important trade centre from the 12th century onwards.

During the 17th century, a large weapons industry grew up. Amongst others,

Birmingham provided Oliver Cromwell's army with weapons, and later on they supplied Napoleon.

During the golden age of the Industrial Revolution, the city grew rapidly thanks to its supplies of iron, coal and labour. Birmingham subsequently became an important hub in England's canal and train networks, and these days the city has a network of over 60 km of canals and other waterways, which is more than Venice.

During the Second World War, large areas of the city were destroyed, and a relatively unlovely city centre was rebuilt. In recent years, however, an architectural renaissance has occurred and old squares, streets and waterways have been restored and renovated.

Many typical British brands, frequently world famous brands, have been created here, including Bakelite, Cadbury's, Brylcreem, HP Sauce and Typhoo Tea. The city's inhabitants include J. R. R. Tolkien and Ozzy Osbourne.
