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. 


To Eat

  1. Purnell’s serves great food in a red brick Victorian building in the city centre.  
  2. Adam’s is an award winning local favourite with a constantly changing menu of seasonal dishes.

To Stay

  1. Hotel du Vin is on the site of a former eye hospital and offers modern contemporary design. 
  2. The ultra-modern Clayton Hotel Birmingham is just minutes from the Bullring shopping centre.
