Birmingham is the second-most populous city in the UK and often referred to as 'The Venice of the North' due to the quirky fact of having more miles of canal than Venice, although they are much less prominent here due to the sheer size of the city. The metropolitan area can boast five universities; the highest number outside of London, a GDP of $121.1bn; the highest outside of London, and in Birmingham New Street the busiest railway station outside of London too. Birmingham is a vital cog in the UK economy and its central location within the country marks it out as a key transport hub.
Another UK city that thrived during the Industrial Revolution, Birmingham was known during that period as a highly innovative area of the country that specialised in manufacturing. Nowadays the Lloyds Banking Group, National Express and Mondelez International are amongst the largest employers in the city, all of whom have major headquarters or bases here. The American conglomerate Mondelez now owns Cadburys, which is perhaps the most famous Birmingham export having been founded on the city's Bull Street back in 1824. It is now the second-largest confectionery brand in the world.
