“Birmingham is big, it’s bold and there are tons of beautiful sights and bright city lights,” says Tori in Birmingham.
New restaurants and bars are springing up all the time and there are plenty of cosy corners in them all to gossip with your girlfriends in. And loads of luxurious spas for you all to relax in. Birmingham is a shopper's dream - expect all the high street favourites, sassy boutiques, vintage markets and high-end stores such as Harvey Nichols.
