Personally no, I get to see a lot of Brum, many of the areas I see are not exactly on the tourist guides, in fact, city centre aside, I have likely walked/driven a very high percentage of Brums streets and don't get me wrong some of the areas are "rough" but certainly not "no go"

 

Strangely the over the years the only place I felt truly uncomfortable was an estate in Winsford, never in Brum

We recently did the Curly Wurly st a slow pace and found it a positive experience,  much improved. Then made our way to Sherbourne Wharf via Titford. I dont think we found a single place where we felt uncomfortable or at risk. At least not from what was above the water!
