Holidays to Birmingham
Birmingham is Britain’s second largest city with a population of over one million, and is set in the very heart of the country’s Midlands. The beautiful city is famous worldwide for its industrial heritage as well as for its more recent recognition as being a metropolis of culture and diversity.
What to See and Do in Birmingham
Birmingham is fast becoming a hive for culture and the arts, which is great news as you’ll never short of things to do. Art lovers are spoilt for choice in Birmingham. For all fans of art, a holiday to Birmingham wouldn’t be complete without a visit to the Birmingham Museum Art Gallery. Here you can see a world-renowned Pre-Raphaelite collection that will undoubtedly impress. For those who prefer the more contemporary arts, you should head over to the Ikon Gallery which houses truly-awe inspiring contemporary pieces.
For a real taste of Birmingham’s stunning architecture, a visit to Aston Hall comes highly recommended. This traditional Jacobean mansion house is one of Birmingham’s most prized buildings and is extremely popular for family days out due to its stunning parks and gardens.
Regeneration has been rife in Birmingham in recent years and as such a significant move has been made away from its industrial past to a buzzing 21st century city. One major addition that came along with the regeneration project is the Bull Ring shopping centre with over 120 shopping units to explore. If you prefer a more ‘boutique’ shopping experience, there are an abundance of trendy independent shops in the canal side developments, particularly around the Gas Street Basin.
Holidays to Birmingham don’t stop at sight seeing and shopping. Birmingham boasts an array of nightlife opportunities, from watching a performance by the Royal Ballet to a night out in the busy bars and clubs in and around the city centre. If you’re looking for the latter, there are a number of trendy bars around the Gas Street Basin that are well worth a visit. If you’re looking for something a little more lively, why not visit the Oceana nightclub and dance away into the small hours?
