Things to do here
Britain’s second largest city has replaced the urban grittiness of its 19th century industrial past for a more refined existence today. The city’s Symphony Hall and Public Library are simply world class. The iconic Bullring shopping centre has become a central focus for the modern Birmingham and the city boasts plenty of public spaces and parks. Birmingham is also crisscrossed with delightful canals - the locals like to point out - more than exist in Venice.
- Purnell’s serves great food in a red brick Victorian building in the city centre.
- Adam’s is an award winning local favourite with a constantly changing menu of seasonal dishes.
- Hotel du Vin is on the site of a former eye hospital and offers modern contemporary design.
- The ultra-modern Hotel La Tour is just minutes from the Bullring shopping centre.
