birmingham is a very large city with a diverse population and range of areas to live in. there are areas which are predominatly white, asian areas, west indian areas, mixed areas.what ethnic group your from may have a bearing on where you choose to live.
sutton coldfield is in the north of birmingham, it is a very expensive area to live in, personally i find north birmingham a less pleasant place to live than south.
there are some really nice suburbs in south birmingham, very green and leafy. bournville is probably the pick of them, but again house prices there are expensive.
i live in west heath, which is nice enough and affordable. kings norton has some nice areas, as does longbridge, rubery, selly oak, northfield. shirley and moseley and kings heath are also worth considering. all of those mentioned are within 7 miles of birmingham city centre.
most brummies who do well for themselves aspire to leave birmingham as soon as they can afford it and head to the surrounding towns and villages. alvechurch is a lovely little village, as is wythall, both about 3 miles out of the birmingham boundary but still within driving distance. slightly further out you have bromsgrove and redditch, also solihull is nice but very very expensive. about 25 miles out but with an easy commute is worcester, stratford upon avon, warwick, bewdley, all nice places.
where are you moving from?
