Like many here I think about thew various options open to me for when I do eventually buy a house. My work is in Birmingham and so I have considered remaining in B'ham as a place to live but also have put some thought to places I could reasonably commute from. This includes Worcester which I like very much but have recently wondered what Tamworth may have to offer. I would get more bricks and mortar for my money than I would in Worcester but since I have never been to Tamworth I have no idea what it would be like as a place to live in. Anyone know what Tamworth is like as a place and also any knowledge about the Tamworth property market?

Tamworth is the ancient capital of the Kingdom of Mercia. It is technically a new town but officially it isn't. Like all new towns, it is filled with tacky faceless 1960s architecture. I think prices are stagnant but on the cheap side for the west midlands.

Thanks viterbi for the reply. It doesn't sound too promising! I like the sound of the history but not the 1960s architecture. And the phrase 'New Town' certainly gets my warning bells ringing. I will probably go up to take a look and walk round to get a feel of Tamworth for myself but may have to resort to keeping Birmingham and Worcester as my target areas to buy in.

Any other views, opinions and suggestions about Tamworth, or nearby places to Birmingham, would still be welcome. It's not easy making a decision that you will have to live with for a number of years.
