Birmingham is a city and metropolitan borough in England. It is the second-largest city in the United Kingdom. Located in the West Midlands county and region in England, approximately 100 miles from Central London, Birmingham, as one of the United Kingdom's major cities, is considered to be the social, cultural, financial, and commercial centre of the Midlands. It only has small rivers flowing through it, mainly the River Tame and its tributaries River Rea and River Cole. A market town of Warwickshire in the medieval period, Birmingham grew during the Industrial Revolution, and saw advances in science, technology, and economic development, producing a series of innovations that laid many of the foundations of modern industrial society.  Birmingham's distinctive economic profile, with thousands of small workshops practising a wide variety of specialised and highly skilled trades, encouraged exceptional levels of creativity and innovation and provided an economic base for prosperity that was to last into the final quarter of the 20th century.
