The Region

The West Midlands is a hive of activity – and within easy reach of some of the UK’s best countryside. It’s also the second most densely populated county in the UK. Busy, bustling and culturally diverse, it’s a vibrant area in which to live and work.

The county’s towns and cities are packed with history, sport and culture – and in Birmingham, you have one of the UK’s fastest growing and most exciting cities. It’s also just an hour’s train from London. Look out for Sarehole Mill, a Grade II listed water mill in Hall Green, Birmingham, which inspired The Hobbit and The Lord of The Rings.
