Birmingham, the UK’s second largest city, is crammed full of exciting attractions, things to do and a rich, cultural heritage. Thanks to its leading global university, and influx of international students, Birmingham is a buzzing, lively vibrant city.
Museums, art galleries, and a wide eclectic mix of attractions, including the Legoland Discovery Centre, National Sealife Centre, and the innovative ThinkTank Museum means that there is something to keep every family member happy.
For retail therapy, the Bullring and Grand Central shopping centre has all the big high street names, alongside designer labels, and plenty of luxury pampering experiences, such as spa treatments, high end manicures, and Selfridges make-overs. However, if you prefer a more artisan flavour to your browsing, the Jewellery Quarter is a must-see, as are the arcades full of boutiques showcasing one-offs, studio crafts and bohemian glassware.
The nightlife is as bright and exhilarating as the city by day, with clubs, award winning restaurants and Birmingham’s famous secret bars scattered throughout the streets. There is so much to sample, you’ll be spoilt for choice.
