Living in Birmingham

The heart of the UK

Birmingham comes with some of the strongest transport links in the UK. Served by the M5, M6, M40 and M42 as well as the Spaghetti Junction - the most well-known in the UK. 

It’s also a great location for commuters, for both those working in the city centre and those who’d rather work further afar. Being close to the Black Country means that you can buy a home in smaller towns and cities like Dudley and Wolverhampton, or other surrounding areas such as family-friendly Rednal, and step on a quick train into the city centre. Alternatively, trains to London are around 2 hrs max, 1hr 30mins for Bristol, and less than an hour to Cheltenham. This means that, no matter where you work or how far to travel, you can still enjoy Brummie life with a Persimmon home.

A city full of life

Birmingham is a city that really does come to life. With electric nightlife, a mix of restaurants and bars, plus a variety of entertainment venues, this is a city that caters for everyone. Family amenities include the Birmingham Botanical Gardens and the Sea Life Centre, as well as the Cadbury’s World and the Black Country Museum if you’re looking for something a little out of town. You’ll make countless memories with your family when buying a home here. 

The Bullring is the go-to for the ultimate shopping experience, and there are plenty of events held at the NEC venue each year. We also can’t forget about Star City - a fun-filled leisure complex that’s home to one of the largest cinemas in Europe, and is only ten minutes from the city centre. Our housing developments put you at the forefront of Birmingham’s entertainment scene, meaning you can make the most of city life without straying far from your doorstep. 

The Venice of the West Midlands

However, it’s not all about the hustle and bustle. For when you need some respite, there are leafy parks and surrounding countryside that provide that well-needed break from the fast-moving centre. 

But it's the city canals that really stand out. These tranquil waterways stretch for 35 miles - said to be more than Venice! Serving as a reminder of the city’s industrial past, the canals are dotted with colourful boats, while walkers and cyclists make the most of the footpaths that run either side. Imagine owning a home in Birmingham and enjoying these stunning watery routes as part of your day-to-day life?
