Two cities with a close industrial and economic affinity
Birmingham has a population of more than 1.1 million, making it the second-largest city of Great Britain. It is also the heart of the West Midlands and arguably the home of the "Made in Britain" label. Previously mainly known as a centre of the metal-processing industry, Birmingham has developed to become a modern metropolis with a large number of service businesses. A particularly close connection between Graz and Birmingham is the strong focus on the automotive, rail-car and aviation industry.

Birmingham Airport is linked to London by a high-speed train service departing up to 6 times per hour and reaching London in less than 75 minutes. High-speed train services are also available to Manchester and Liverpool.
