The people of Birmingham are known as 'Brummies', a term derived from the city's nickname of Brum. This comes in turn from the city's dialect name, Brummagem. There is a distinctive Brummie dialect and accent.

The Green Man of Birmingham

This is my second time to Birmingham. The first time was in December 2004. I have some friends living here and I usually take the train from London and come here for the day and leave on the last train back to London.

    I've never seen anything quite like the Greenman before! Would love to check out some of the canals in Birmingham one of these days.
