The Area

Edgbaston is an area steeped in rich history and culture. It is set within a distinctive conservation area just a couple of miles from the heart of Birmingham city centre.

The area is home to many well-known businesses with a global reach, world class medical facilities and a redbrick university attracting 30,000 students from across the globe.

It remains the premier residential district close to the City Centre and contains some of the most desirable housing in the City.

The Edgbaston Conservation Area and the smaller St Augustine’s, Lee Crescent and Ryland Road Conservation Areas cover half the land area. The influence of the Calthorpe Estate has been particularly important in preserving the quality and character of the areas to the South of Hagley Road.

At its heart, Edgbaston benefits from truly world class arts, leisure and sports facilities which attract hundreds of thousands of visitors each year as well as quality shopping, bars and restaurants.
