Did you know that Solihull is the West Midlands’ most affluent town? Previously sitting in Warwickshire, Solihull is now part of the West Midlands conurbation. Just 7.5 miles south of Birmingham, its character blends with Birmingham itself. However, it is a desirable place to live, and as such is home to many Birmingham commuters.
Interestingly, the town of Solihull has its own motto: Urbs in Rure, meaning ‘town in country’ and this sums it up. Sat between the bustling city of Birmingham and the countryside beyond, it’s a town with mixed opportunities and interests.
