My home city of Birmingham is a really great city! Obviously, I am really biased being is one true born and bred Brummie, but so what.
 
For those that don%u2019t know much about Birmingham, I thought I%u2019d write this little post just to fill in some details.
 
Everyone knows the residents of Birmingham are known as Brummies which comes from an earlier name for Birmingham which was Brummagem. We all speak in a very distinct accent, although many people from outside of the area believe that the Black Country accent is the same but they are very different. Hard to believe I know!
 
Birmingham is England%u2019s second city and it is located in the West Midlands. It is a metropolitan borough and also the most densely populated British city apart from London. The 2011 census recorded nearly 1.1 million residents and that had grown from 1 million in the previous 10 years.
The city is part of the West Midlands conurbation which has nearly 2.3 million residents and is the second most densely populated urban area in whole of the UK.
 
Birmingham%u2019s fine came about during the Industrial Revolution which meant it was one of the leading cities in the world at that time. In 1791 it was believed to be centre of the industrial world as it was known to be the first manufacturing town in the world. Its streets teamed with all sorts of workshops of highly skilled tradesmen and innovation that was forged in the city was second to none.
 
Nowadays, Birmingham has lost a lot of its traditional manufacturing heritage but is still a major international centre of commerce. Due to its location, it is also a very important transport hub within the UK. In 2008 the GDP was seen to be $90 billion in the economy of the local urban area, which made it the second largest in the UK and also 72nd largest throughout the world.
