Where is Birmingham?

Birmingham is located in the heart of the West Midlands, just over 100 miles to the north-west of London. Historically, Birmingham was a city of high strategic importance for UK manufacturing and industry. The city is at the centre of the country’s historic canal network. The canals provided connections to London and several key port cities. This helped bring crucial supplies into the city for manufacturing, and for its products to reach the rest of the country.

The city is highly connected to the UK’s road and rail networks. This makes Birmingham easily accessible from all parts of the country. The M5, M6, M42 and several other motorways pass through, or close to Birmingham. Additionally, Birmingham’s mainline rail stations – New Street, Moor Street and Snow Hill – provide fast and efficient routes to London and other major UK cities. Birmingham Airport also puts Europe within easy reach, with many of the continent’s most popular destinations served by the airport.
