Are you thinking about moving to Birmingham? Or are you looking for a new home in the city centre? 

Now recognised as one of the best places to live in Europe, there truly hasn’t been a better time to call the Second City home. In this blog, we discuss the many benefits of living in Birmingham in 2021 and provide you with the top three residential hotspots in the city centre. 

From the bustling City Core to the quaint, village-like Jewellery Quarter, Birmingham offers something for everyone. Whether you’re a lover of long walks or if fashion is much more your thing, each corner of this spectacular city has something exciting and unique to offer. 

Thriving under the Big City Plan, Birmingham is finally enjoying its moment in the sun; this regeneration scheme transforms the city into something exceptional. People from all over are coming to be part of Birmingham’s journey, and it’s now one of the youngest cities in Europe, with 40% of its population under the age of 25. 

With the introduction of HS2 and significant events like the 2022 Birmingham Commonwealth Games on the horizon, the second city’s attention is continuing to grow.

Without further ado, here are our top recommendations for places to live in the city we call home:

Jewellery Quarter

Take the short trip out to the iconic Jewellery Quarter, and you’ll quickly find that the buzz surrounding this neighbourhood is definitely justified. An area that’s steeped in history and littered with marvellous, homegrown independents, the Jewellery Quarter, locally referred to as JQ is a fantastic place to reside. 

Known for its welcoming, community vibe, the Jewellery Quarter has everything you would expect from an urban city area, but its beauty leaves visitors delighted and wanting more. Its character and tranquil green spaces, such as St Paul’s Square, make it the perfect neighbourhood for those who enjoy a slightly laidback lifestyle.

City Core


On the other end of the spectrum, those who enjoy the city life’s hustle and bustle will be better suited to the City Core. Home to landmarks such as the famous Bullring shopping centre, Grand Central and Victoria Square, the city centre packs itself with exciting things to do. A city that’s always on the move, if you take a stroll out at any point in the day, you’re sure to find something going on. 

Due to its vibrant nature, the City Core is a popular choice for working professionals who enjoy a fast-paced lifestyle and typically work within Colmore Row, the city’s booming business district.

The Mailbox

Finally, for those who have a taste for the finer things in life, the Mailbox is the place to be. Serving up luxury in abundance, this neighbourhood is home to some of the city’s most exclusive and high-end experiences, such as dining at Marco Pierre White’s rooftop restaurant. 

The Mailbox isn’t just about glitz and glamour, though. This haven of architectural brilliance houses some of the cities most sought after properties, situated just minutes from the beautiful Brindleyplace.
