Living in the Midlands


Surrounded by stunning sprawling countryside makes Staffordshire one of the most attractive places to live. Housing prices are very affordable with a high quality of life. The largest city in the county is Stoke-on-Trent with towns such as Stafford, Burton-upon-Trent, Cannock and Tamworth being a popular place to live. Properties vary across the cities, large towns and rural villages giving plenty of choice.


Containing towns such as West Bridgford, Beeston, Ruddington and the major city Nottingham. Famous as the home of Robin Hood and Sherwood Forest, Nottinghamshire is rich in history with stunning architecture. Many major global companies hold their Headquarters in Nottingham, giving a high employment rate.

Extensive improvement to the public transport system makes Nottingham one of the greenest cities in the UK and the Vale of Belvoir was recently voted as one of the best places to live in Britain by the Sunday Times. 


Ranked in the top 10 places to live in the UK, Coventry is a lively city with affordable housing and plenty of employment opportunities.

Coventry is well placed in the West Midlands, travelling in, out and around the city is easy with a large public transport and road network. The prestigious University of Warwick is also close by.


With a population to rival London, Birmingham is the UK’s second-largest city. The city has experienced much regeneration in recent years, making Birmingham one of the most popular multi-cultural cosmopolitan areas to live and work.

Once known as a predominantly industrial city, Birmingham has turned into a centre of art, green spaces and attracts both UK and international businesses.

Birmingham has an outstanding bus, rail and metro transport system. For a major city, housing costs are relatively low compared to other areas of the UK.
