Handsworth Area Guide


Handsworth is an urban area of Northwest Birmingham, located just outside the City Centre. The name originates from its Saxon owner Hondes and the Old English word weorthing, meaning farm or estate. Redevelopment is regenerating the area to make it an even better place to live.

Handsworth has a rich cultural heritage, having either been home or host to a number of figures who defined their cultural eras. Celebrities born in Handsworth include the legendary Black Sabbath guitarist Tony Iommi. Diana, Princess of Wales and boxing icon Muhammad Ali were given thunderous ovations on arriving in Handsworth during their much-anticipated visits to the area.

Handsworth’s property prices are increasing, especially when homes are sold by LYP’s specialist estate agents.
