Birmingham bangs the beating drum for the West Midlands - it’s the second largest city in the UK and it’s packed with shopping, nightlife, and a whole plethora of attractions from Cadbury World for chocoholics, to the National Sealife Centre for marine life lovers and all sorts of fabulous opportunities to make amazing memories in between.
Flex your credit card in the uber cool and seriously sparkly Selfridges Bullring shopping center. Take a Peaky Blinders tour and cruise the underground waterways. With more miles of canals than Venice, there’s plenty of beautiful scenery to take in. Birmingham is also renowned for its dining scene, which ranges from the flavourful family-run eateries of the Balti Triangle to its Michelin-star restaurants.
Make those amazing memories beyond the big city in the counties of Warwickshire, Staffordshire, Shropshire, Worcestershire and Herefordshire, all of which make up the West Midlands. And Stratford upon Avon - home of William Shakespeare, Warwick Castle and UNESCO World Heritage Site Ironbridge most definitely should be on your agenda.
