Birmingham City Council

About the city of Birmingham

Birmingham is a city in the West Midlands of England with a population of about 1 million; 45% of our residents are under 30 and 13% are over 65. Our museums and galleries house some of the finest collections in the country, and our central library in the form of the Library of Birmingham is one of the largest public lending and reference libraries in Europe. We're at the heart of Britain's historic canal network boasting 114 miles of canal throughout the whole city, and 15 miles ideal for walking along just in the centre alone.
