Birmingham is widely regarded as one of the UK’s friendliest and most popular cities. As the official second city, it is a year-round tourist destination that attracts some of the best names and companies across a variety of industries.
The ‘Brummie’ sense of humour is perhaps especially well known, and never has this been so obvious than in some of the city’s most humorous shop names. Whether with puns, word play or simply creative spelling, there is no better way to get customers through the door than with a smile on their face.
According to a recent report, Birmingham is the most popular city of choice for those moving out of London.
Birmingham serviced apartments and flats are very popular. It has been noted by numerous surveys that the quality of living is one of the nation’s best, with the question ‘Where can I find a Birmingham serviced apartment?‘ more commonly searched than ever before.
