Known commonly as England’s ‘second city’, the city of Birmingham covers the second largest amount of land for a city in England, with an area of around 268 km2, and has a population of around 1.1 million. It has a long way to go to catch up with London, however. The capital covers over 1,500 km2 and is home to almost 10 million people.
Birmingham is famous for an eclectic mix: history - for instance the Jewellery Quarter; architecture, like the striking Grand Central station; green spaces – the most in a European city; heavy metal music (e.g. Ozzy Osborne’s Black Sabbath) and inventing the Balti curry dish. It’s also famous for being one of the friendliest cities in the UK.
