Birmingham is the second largest city in the UK and as such there are many parts of our wonderful city that we often leave unexplored.
Whilst Rise Online might be based on the north side of Birmingham we recognise and value the various locales around the city that we call home. As part of our outreach in to different parts of the city we are publishing specific location pages on our website to celebrate the diversity that each area brings. Today, it is the turn of the wonderful suburb of Edgbaston – perhaps one of the most well know suburbs in Birmingham across the rest of the UK thanks to it playing home to the England cricket team and Warwickshire County Cricket Club.
Edgbaston is one of the wealthier areas of the nation’s second city and has a population of around 17,000 and has around 9,000 homes in total. Edgbaston Cricket Ground and Edgbaston Priory Tennis Club boast some of the finest sporting facilities in the West Midlands and even in the UK.
Perhaps Edgbaston’s most famous resident is JRR Tolkien who spent his youth in the area with some of the various places in and around the ward supposedly providing inspiration for Lord of the Rings.
Edgbaston has a bubbling community spirit and despite its wealth there is an excellent neighbourly feel to most of the tree lined streets in the area. At Rise Online, we know how important the area is to the city and we are looking forward to working with even more businesses from the area to improve their digital marketing, SEO and general web presence.
If you own a business in the local area and would like to get in touch to see how we can help you make the most of your online presence or if you are out of the area and have the same need then please get in touch with us today for a free and impartial chat to discuss how our services could be of benefit to you.
