Discover Tolkien in Birmingham...
JRR Tolkien is best known as the author of The Hobbit and its sequel, Lord of the Rings.
Tolkien was born in South Africa in 1892 until he and his family moved to Birmingham in 1896 when Tolkien was just 4 years old. It is widely believed that the areas in Birmingham provided inspiration for some of the settings in his work.
