Birmingham is the second largest city and can be found slap bang in the centre of the UK which means it has easier and quicker links to the north and south of the country.  Popular cities like Manchester and London are just a couple of hours away from the Midlands. 

The bullring is at the heart of ‘Brum’ where you’ll find various shops, restaurants, bars, cafes and so much more to suit every budget and taste.  Nearby you’ll find The Mailbox which features designer and high-end boutique shops and a range of different eateries and the dynamic Brindleyplace canalside destination which is conveniently positioned just off Broad Street with its array of bars and restaurants plus next to the National Indoor Arena (NIA) and the International Convention Centre (ICC).  Brindleyplace is also home to the National Sea Life Centre, Ikon Gallery and Crescent Theatre.

In the day jump aboard a canal boat and take a stroll through Birmingham’s waterways and by night treat yourself to a drink in one of the many bars dotted along Brindleyplace, when the whole of Birmingham city centre comes alive. 

Pay a trip to the Birmingham Museum and Art Gallery to catch a glimpse of the world’s largest collection of Pre-Raphaelites.  Jewellery lovers, especially the ladies, will enjoy taking a stroll through The Jewellery Quarter. 

Chocoholics will feel like they’re in heaven at Cadbury World.  Take a self-guided tour through the factory of the UK’s leading confectionary manufacturer where you’ll uncover a world of chocolate through 14 different zones and discover how chocolate is made from its origin of a cocoa bean to its wrapper.
