There is no shortage of fantastic shopping options in Birmingham, but the Jewellery Quarter offers something a little bit different.
It is believed that this area manufactures around 40% of all of the jewelry made in the United Kingdom.
The fact that this area is a historic one with a notable style of its own means that it is a hugely popular tourist attraction, and it welcomes countless tourists on a daily basis, many of whom are there to see the local sights as opposed to shopping.
Moseley was recently chosen as one of the best places to live in the UK and it will definitely appeal to music lovers.
Because of this, you can expect to pay more for a house in Moseley than in nearby areas. The majority of house sales in there last year were terraced homes, with the average price around £204,433.
Moseley hosts a folk festival and a Jazz Funk & Soul Festival in Moseley Park. It also features the MAC (Midlands Arts Centre), which hosts a variety of theatre, dance, music and comedy performances. Also, if you enjoy food festivals, several of them are organised in Cannon Hill Park.
Not far from Mosely is Kings Heath, with an independent spirit and much more affordable homes.
It is a unique place for shopping with a number of boutiques, the vintage flea market at All Saints Centre, street food market on the village square and the Kings Heath Food Assembly. There are also a lot of cafes, restaurants and some live music venues such as the Hare and Hounds.
