Retire to a thriving, historical area in the UK's second city

From the deep heritage of the Jewellery Quarter to the iconic shopping mall at the Bullring, the ‘city of a thousand trades’ has plenty of fascinating architecture, museums and galleries to explore. You can travel the extensive canal network that made Birmingham a hub for trade and transport, or take a tour of the preserved ‘back-to-back’ houses of the 19th century.

There are more than 20 museums around the Birmingham region, including the Thinktank science museum and the Aston Manor Road Transport Museum.

It's also a city that's renowned for its shopping – from the household-name brands of the modern Bullring centre to the huge range of creative curiosities in the hundreds of stalls at the Rag Market.

Explore a cultural hub of events and performances

As a huge, multi-cultural urban centre, there's no shortage of things to do and see. You'll find touring West End shows, ballet, opera and symphony orchestras, as well as dance, film and comedy events all over the city, which makes it a perfect place to take your family out when they visit you at your new retirement property.

Birmingham also hosts a huge number of festivals throughout the year, such as the International Dance Festival, the International Jazz and Blues Festival and the Midlands Whisky Festival.
And if Birmingham's hive of activity isn't already enough, it's just a 20-minute train journey to either Wolverhampton or Coventry, giving you two whole new cities to explore in your retirement.

My son wanted me to move a bit closer to where he lives, so I was easily persuaded. I was a little bit worried about some parts of the move, but McCarthy & Stone’s Smooth Move service made it so easy for me, I had signed within a fortnight!

Keep up your active lifestyle in a busy city

Despite its urban setting, Birmingham has more open space than any other European city – including ten parks that have received the prestigious Green Flag Award. It's also home to Sutton Park, the largest urban nature reserve in Europe.

You can tour the Victorian Botanical Gardens, visit Birmingham's nine nature reserves, or study the wildlife at Woodgate Valley Country Park.  

You'll also have plenty of places to keep fit and continue an active retirement. There are over 50 golf courses to choose from in the West Midlands area, with more than ten in Birmingham itself. Dorridge, for example, has three different golf clubs within a 2-mile radius!

If you'd like to retire to a busy hub at the centre of England, see if one of our modern apartments is a good fit:

Because we purchased off-plan, we were lucky to choose the pick of the best plots, with stunning views over the communal gardens. I was most impressed with McCarthy and Stone’s flexibility and willingness to help. McCarthy and Stone were incredibly supportive, and made the whole process seem easy.
