Dodgy Areas, Birmingham: 34 reviews and 2 photos

there is no serious problems in birmingham its just what people always think but times have changed i have lived in all over uk because of my job i lived in london,cardiff,manchester,swindon,and i think birmingham is not half bad as people thinks you can get mugged outside buckingham palace it did happen to my friend my point is every towns and cities have there good bad and ugly side to it one city might have high level of robbery and another for assault there is no hiding from it after travling all over uk i settled in barnt green on the edge of birmingham the reason i chose this city is simple not too big not too small plus bang in middle of uk shopping is excellent wide range of people from all over the world yes it sometimes feel bit odd when driving/walking in some areas ethnic minority areas but you get that in all towns and cities and you do get used to it in all i think birmingham is a very good city take it from a guy who travels alot.
