Solihull in general Reviews
Newest Review: ... not being associated with Birmingham but you get that sort of snobbery in all affluent areas. The town centre itself has been vastly improved in the last ten years, including the building and opening of Touchwood Court shopping centre and the pedestrianisation of the High Street. There is also a plentiful supply of pubs, bars and eateries although most of them are the usual chain fare (Wetherspoons, Hogshead etc). Solihull on a Friday or Saturday night has apparently, in the last few years, attracted more trouble than it ever used to. There are always loads of police about and there are security guards on the chip shop door! I'm not sur... more

First of all, to correct a couple of reviewers on here, Solihull is not part of Birmingham. It is geographically and factually incorrect to say that it is. Solihull is it's own borough, although it does share the 'B' postcodes and '0121' area codes with Birmingham. I am not being pretentious here because it makes no odds to me whether or not it's in Birmingham or not - I am just stating facts. Right, now on with the review... I moved to Solihull, from London, 18 years ago. At first the place seemed really small compared to what I was used to in London but, in fairnesss, everywhere in the UK seems small compared with London. Solihull is a nice little town, ...

Solihull ******* I thought l would write a review about my home town, Solihull. This is a review about the place that l grew up in, and the town which l shall probably always call home. I don't actually currently live in this town, although l don't live far away and l regularly visit. It's a town l know well, so l thought l would attempt to share my knowledge. Set in the west midlands, Solihull is a suburb of Birmingham, and has a lot to offer. Solihull is approximately a 20 minute drive to Birmingham, and a takes a similar time to get to Warwick. Visitors to the town can make use of the M42 which is a major route into ... Read the complete review

Although I class myself as living in Birmingham, I actually live just as close to Solihull town centre as I do to Brum. Solihull residents annoy me a bit to be honest. They always say "we're from So-lihull" in a way that indicates they think they are better than Brummies. House prices are expensive and on the whole people that live in Solihull are middle class and fairly dull (well why would anyone choose to live in boring old Solihull if you were wealthy apart from being boring?) I really hope no-one reads this that lives in Solihull as they will kill me! All of the houses are big with several cars on the driveway and nicely pruned hedges. Down ... Read the complete review

Solihull, in the West Midlands. It's a small town with a normal high street and square shopping area. In 2000 they started to build a shopping mall, called Touch wood court. It's big, it's full of shops and it's hopefully making a packet!...Touch wood!!! ;) It's built right at the end of the high street, so it's easy access to buses or even the train station. It has a car park to hold 10,000 cars which is quite cheap to park for a couple of hours. The front of Touch wood is very attractive with a huge STAR BUCKS CAFE right at the top, the coffee is superb! The court is wide, with shops on each side. There are antique ...
