Edgbaston originated as a middle class suburb in the early to middle 19th Century and was popular amongst many of Birmingham’s manufacturing business owners. With excellent convenience, it is typically less than one mile from central Birmingham on its North-Eastern fringes. Today, much of central Edgbaston (the majority within the B15 postcode) retains this Georgian and Victorian character with mainly wide tree lined roads containing large detached houses, many being among the most expensive in the city. There is a choice of well-regarded private schooling within B15.
There are more affordable parts of Edgbaston including postcode B16, the area roughly north of Hagley Road (A456) which features larger style Victorian houses and conversions, and postcode B5, the area straddling the corridor along Bristol Road (A38) and Pershore Road (A441) where a wide range of properties from large Georgian houses through to town houses and flats can be found.
The area is home to a number of popular recreational and sporting facilities including Cannon Hill Park, Midlands Arts Centre, Botanical Gardens, Edgbaston Reservoir, Warwickshire County Cricket Club, Edgbaston Priory Tennis Club and Edgbaston Golf Course. The area also is home to the University of Birmingham with its distinctive Victorian architecture and landmark clock tower.
