    No idea...

    Solihull? Leamington Spa? Sutton Coldfield? Just ideas.
    Walsall and Wolverhampton are supposed to be alright as well...
    Wasn't Wolverhampton voted the fifth worst place in the world?

    hahahahahahahaha. Leam Spa is a hole. Wolverhampton has been voted the country's 'worst city.

    Most millionaires are in Tamworth In Arden, so probably there.

    Second thought - probably in the Midlands, the Cotswolds, somewhere like Broadway.

    Strange question in the first place.
    :woo: Just googled Cotswolds... how does anyone afford a house for £17,000,000?

    What are your views?...More specifically the West Midlands...Thanks in advance.

    Here, I made a new account so i can answer this question. Some of the answers your' getting is ridiculous.

    Posh places in West Midlands ARE

    Certain parts of Moesley, Little Aston, Edbaston, Harbone (some parts), Selly Oak and Some parts of Sutton Coldfield. SOME parts of Shirley too.


    Trust me SOLIHULL ISNT POSH! I used to work there. Infact i worked in a bank there and the place is full of chavs, or old folks and averaged income people. Ive seen their accounts. They are'nt loaded, infact people from Small Heath have more money than most people in Solhiull. Its just that Solihull is bigger and thus houses are bigger.

    Obviously there criteria must have been unusual i'm sure places in Columbia and other **** places you will have a greater chance of being captured and held for ransom and being killed for your organs than coming back alive rather than just having an awful meal, disliking the aesthetics and scenery and maybe being intimidated by the atmosphere and local people in Wolverhampton

    Um... does anyone on TSR go into the countryside? You know.... its a place with villages and houses and farms and the like........

    Go into rural oxfordshire, or south warwickshire and you'll see some fabulously wealthy and posh places.

    Definitely not Worcester (my hometown). Nice looking but full of Chavs.
    I blame Worcester Uni as the main attraction.

    Worcester was nice (and some parts still are) up until ~2007

    Clearly never been to Walsall or Wolverhampton. Walsall isn't horrible but it isn't somewhere that shows the Midlands in it's best light. Wolverhampton, well, the '5th worst place in the world' title sums it up perfectly.
