The Salon (>) is situated on King’s Norton Green, which is a beautiful medieval village hidden away in a Birmingham suburb. It has:

an ancient Village Green (dating back to Anglo-Saxon times) >
a large 13th-century church >
a 15th century inn, the Saracen's Head >
a 15th century school building, situated in the spacious and leafy churchyard >

In 2004 the Old School and the Saracen's Head were were the winners of the BBC’s Restoration competition and were awarded over £3 million towards the cost of major refurbishment.

Kings Norton has played its part in history: a minor battle in the English Civil War was fought on the Green (1642), and later in the war Queen Henrietta Maria arrived in Kings Norton with an army of around 5,500 men that she had raised in Yorkshire. She stayed the night in the Saracen’s Head.
