Life in Ladywood – your new neighbourhood

Living in Birmingham just got dreamier. Tucked away between the city centre and leafy suburbs of Edgbaston and Ladywood is your new apartment. We’re only a short walk from Birmingham city centre as well as rambling green spaces, soul-soothing waterways and lovingly tended gardens.

A bit about Brum

If you’ve heard the buzz around Birmingham, you’ll already know that it’s rich with culture, history, music and more.

First of all, the city is beautifully central. Right in the heart of England and well connected by train, road, plane and even boat, you can get pretty much anywhere, any way.

Then there’s Birmingham’s thriving cafe culture, ‘banging’ nightlife and over 50 festivals each year, from jazz and opera to comedy and poetry.

Not only does Birmingham boast the most Michelin-starred restaurants in the UK outside of London – but there are also more street food markets and pop-ups than any foodie could dream of.

And, if you’re wondering where you’ll get your dose of retail therapy, look no further. Brum has everything from rambling department stores (Selfridges and Harvey Nichols, no less) to chic boutiques, designer names and indie treasure troves. Our favourite is nearby Edgbaston Village, with its kooky interiors shops, side by side with wine caves and delis.

Waterside life

You’ll find us on the idyllic Oozells Loop – a tranquil canalside haven in Ladywood, close enough to Birmingham to feel the buzz but distant enough to find peace in your bubble.

If leisurely strolls are your thing, you’ll love taking a walk to Soho Loop, stopping for a lakeside picnic at The Vale. Edgbaston Reservoir is a haven for watersports, and Birmingham’s 100 miles of canalway (that’s more than Venice) mean boat parties and mini cruises are an absolute must.

You can even volunteer with the Canal & River Trust to help take care of these magnificent waterways – a fantastic way to meet new friends and give something back to your community.

Green and serene

Ladywood and Edgbaston are surrounded by pretty gardens and iconic parks, along with its lakes, reservoirs and miles of canals. Spend a weekend wildlife spotting in the Botanical Gardens or sunbathe by one of the hidden ponds and secret gardens in Cannon Hill Park – just minutes from the city centre, you’ll find endless opportunities for reconnecting with nature and beauty.
