A rural lifestyle in the city

A rural lifestyle in the city

Living in a city the size of Birmingham, many people may not expect to have the chance to take in the beauty of the countryside and live in a rural environment only a stone's throw from where they live, but the area of Kings Norton in the city can give them such an opportunity.

Kings Norton is situated in Birmingham in the West Midlands. It is a small town with a population of only around 20,000, giving people in the local area the chance to enjoy rural living without being totally cut off from the major dwellings in the UK.

The area has a proud history of markets being held there, which began in 1616 when King James granted it permission to host markets and fairs. Over time however these died away. In the current time, a farmer's market is held in the area.

People looking for property for sale in Kings Norton will be seeing a perfect place to experience quiet small town style living, even if they still want to work in the city of Birmingham itself. Kings Norton provides a train service which travels to Birmingham, as well as having a very regular bus service, with buses travelling into Birmingham City Centre from Kings Norton every few minutes.

The town also offers a number of urban solutions, following the councils urbanisation of it in the 1950s, which turned it from a village into a more populated village.

For those who want something to do at the end of the working week, Kings Norton also offers a golf club for somewhere to relax away from the city of Birmingham itself.ADNFCR-1222-ID-801246574-ADNFCR
