Solihull in the Midlands is literally at the very heart of England, it has been historically demonstrated that Solihull is at the centre of the UK. The Romans, Anglo Saxons and Normans all had settlements in the area. As far back as 1242 the importance of the town was realised when Henry III granted a charter for the town to hold a market, from that moment on Solihull’s future was secured as a commercial centre. Located on the outskirts of Birmingham the town grew in stature and during the Industrial Revolution the canals and railways came to the area further enhancing its reputation. By the 20th century the population of Birmingham was rapidly growing and Solihull attracted more and more residents to the area, it was early in the 20th century that a car manufacturing company was to establish itself in the area and make the name Solihull world famous. It was during the 1930’s that the Rover Car Company established itself in the area and it was in 1948 that the first of its most famous vehicles rolled off the production line – the Land Rover. Today Solihull offers the resident and visitor alike a wide range of diverse activities, from shopping at one of its retail centres through to the parks and gardens on which the Solihull motto is based “Urbs in Rure” – “Town in the Country”, combined with excellent commuter links the future of Solihull is secured.
