A few quick facts about Birmingham – which even if you’re Brum born-and-bred, you may not know:

There’s been some debate about whether Birmingham or Manchester is Britain’s second biggest city. As it turns out, Birmingham is Britain’s second city. Seems to be another case where size does matter: with the largest population and GDP outside of London, in quantifiable terms, the Midlands metropolis trumps Manchester (sorry ‘bout that Manchester, but rest assured that there is another fantastic branch of AquAid that look after their Manchester customers).

Bird’s Custard, Cadbury’s Chocolate, Bournville Drinking Chocolate, HP Sauce and Typhoo Tea are all from Birmingham.

Birmingham has more waterways and canals than Venice with 35 miles of waterways versus Venice’s 26 miles of waterways. The surrounding areas of Birmingham also have loads more canals right nearby – in fact there are still over 100 miles of canals being used in the Midlands today. That’s a lot of water!

Brum, as it’s affectionately known, is one of the UK’s greenest cities with over 8,000 acres and 600 parks and open spaces.

Although the TV series, Peaky Blinders is all about 1920’s Birmingham, very little of it is filmed in the city itself. The nearest we get are scenes that were filmed in the Black Country Living Museum in Dudley, where AquAid happily supply water coolers too.

Brummies (natives of Birmingham) refer to Black Country folk as Yam Yams because they say ‘yow am’ or ‘yow’m’ (meaning ‘you am, you are’). There is apparently a distinct difference between the Brummie accent and that of the Black Country.
