Visit Birmingham

A major City in the West-Midlands of England, Birmingham is among the ten largest cities in the United Kingdom. The perfect place for a weekend away, this fantastic City boasts a rich history, brilliant shopping experiences and art.

History and Art

Birmingham is famed for its 18th-Century position as a manufacturing powerhouse, and today the City is dotted with multiple Industrial Revolution-era landmarks that remind visitors of its history. Running from Sherborne Wharf is a network of canals. Originally built to carry the coal from the City to Manchester, these Canals are now scattered with Birmingham’s coolest bars and most charming apartments. The Birmingham Museum in the Centre provides impressive details of this brilliant City’s illustrious history.

Shopping

One of the greatest things about Birmingham is the shopping experiences that this City has to offer. A marketplace since the 12th Century, this City knows what it’s doing when it comes to great shopping. If you’re in the Centre, Birmingham Market is an absolute must. This fabulous area offers beautiful fabrics, unique trinkets and fresh produce. But, if you are around in winter, New Street plays host to the largest German Christmas Market In Europe.

For high street and designer experiences, the Bullring and Mailbox arcades have you covered. These locations not only answer all your shopping prayers but your food ones too. From tapas and cocktails in the Mailbox to hearty dining in the Bullring, you will be sure to find the perfect place for you.

Just a canal stroll away from the Centre, you can find the Jewellery Quarter. This area of Birmingham is scattered with glittering window displays of shining trinkets, as well as a collection of the best bars in the City. The Jewellery Quarter is the perfect place to escape the buzz of the City, while still enjoying a very relaxed vibe in one of their trendy bars.
