Situated on the edge of Birmingham city centre, Edgbaston is the largest urban conservation area in the country, protected and enriched by Calthorpe Estates.
During the 19th century, industrial development was kept to a minimum, so that today the area enjoys an attractive green environment hosting the Birmingham Botanical Gardens, Winterbourne House and Gardens, Cannon Hill Park and the Nature Centre.
Add to this the presence of a uniquely rich cluster of arts and cultural venues, such as mac birmingham, The Barber institute of Fine Arts and The Lapworth Museum of Geology.
Edgbaston provides a wealth of opportunity if you enjoy playing sport with Edgbaston Golf Club, Edgbaston Croquet Club, Edgbaston Archery & Lawn Tennis Society – the world’s oldest lawn tennis club – and Edgbaston Priory Club which has facilities for tennis, squash and racketball as well as a fitness suite and indoor and outdoor pools.
Edgbaston is also home to the internationally renowned Edgbaston Cricket Stadium, home of Warwickshire County Cricket Club and host to major tournaments including the Ashes. And every year the world’s top female tennis players come to Edgbaston to play at the Aegon Classic Birmingham in preparation for The Championships at Wimbledon.
