Tennyson House is a 10 storey tower block on Fairfax Road in the Longbridge area of Birmingham. Plans for the block were approved in 1963 along with its sister towers Shakespeare House and Wordsworth House. It was completed in 1965 by Bryant and contains 38 flats that provide sheltered housing for elderly people.
Roughly half the flats have two bedrooms and the other half have only one bedroom. The bathrooms have no outside windows. There is a social area in the lower ground floor the size of a two bedroomed flat. There is a caretaker with two other staff and a warden who look after other tower blocks as well.
