Welcome to Camp Hill
Just off Bordesley Middleway, Camp Hill is a small area of central Birmingham. The area’s name was first recorded as Kempe Hill in 1511, and was renamed Camp Hill after Prince Rupert set up camp here in the mid-17th century in the run-up to the Battle of Camp Hill. It’s served by Bordesley station, and is home to restaurants and bars like The Spotted Dog and the Emperors Shisha Lounge.
A short way west of Camp Hill, Solihull is a hub of designer-brand shopping, popular restaurants, picturesque rural villages, as well as cultural centres like National Exhibition Centre and the Genting Arena. A quieter, greener area than much of central Birmingham, Solihull is popular among those looking to escape the bustle of the city and unwind, especially during events like the Foodies Festival and Solihull Summerfest.
Birmingham Back to Backs
The Birmingham Back to Backs is the name given to an expertly restored 19th-century courtyard of houses that were once occupied by the working people of Birmingham in the Victorian era. Take one of its regular guided tours, and you’ll get an intriguing insight into the city’s last remaining court of houses built back-to-back around a communal courtyard.
