About the City:
Birmingham is the Second largest city of the UK. It lies near the geographic centre of England with multiple Industrial Revolution-era landmarks that speak to its 18th-century history as a manufacturing powerhouse. The city heart with a proud heritage and modern outlook famous for retail, commerce and culture. The city offers excellent entertainment for all tastes, with a range of leading theatres, museums, art galleries and music venues. Britain's second largest city Birmingham having located in the West Midlands makes it a great place to begin exploring the beautiful Cotswolds and Malvern Hills areas - especially by canal. Birmingham's canals were a by-product of the Industrial Revolution that saw the city boom, and today this extensive canal network (the city has more canals than Venice) is used mostly for pleasure boating. Currently, the city is renowned for its jewellery and foods as well as its abundant cultural accomplishments and festivals, such as Europe's second-largest St. Patrick's Day Parade.
Birmingham got fame as a manufacturing and engineering centre, but its budget currently is conquered by the service sector, which in 2012 accounted for 88% of the city's engagement. Birmingham is the largest centre in Great Britain for employment in public administration, education and health and after Leeds the second largest centre outside London for employment in financial and other business services. The city is homespun to five universities: Aston University, University of Birmingham, Birmingham City University, University College Birmingham and Newman University.
Homeland to several architectural gems, the futuristic Library of Birmingham and glistening Selfridges Bullring shopping centre are two modern triumphs not to be missed. The city is renowned for its dining scene, which ranges from the flavourful family-run eateries of Balti Triangle to its Michelin-star restaurants. Travel around the city Birmingham by canal boat, that has more miles of canal than Venice and there’s plenty of beautiful scenery to take in. Did you know? Around 40 per cent of British jewellery is made in Birmingham’s famous Jewellery Quarter. The historic district is the perfect place to pick up pieces direct from makers’ workshops. You might like to stay here a night or two on your way to the home of Shakespeare, Stratford-upon-Avon, which is 1 hour south by train. Birmingham is a convenient 1 hour 25 minutes from England’s capital, London.
City Attractions of Birmingham:
Historic City Center:
Town Hall in city center was constructed in 1832 which is a work of genius of Victorian architecture. Resembling a Roman temple, this impressive structure features 40 ornate Corinthian columns made of Anglesey marble. Currently, its extraordinary Symphony Hall, with its world-class audibility and spectacular auditorium, regularly features A-list singers and performers and is also home to the City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra.
Birmingham Museum & Art Gallery:
This Museum and Art Gallery, was unwrapped in 1885, is reflected one of the finest such museums exterior London. Its art treasures include an assemblage of Pre-Raphaelite painters and artwork from the 17th to 19th centuries and monuments by Rodin and James Tower. We could find interesting demonstrations related to the city's history, including archaeological finds dating back to the Stone Age, along with the impressive Pinto Collection, with its 6,000-plus toys and other items made of wood.
National SEA LIFE Centre:
The National SEA LIFE Centre is home to an impressive 60-plus exhibits related to marine life and is one of Birmingham's most-visited tourist fascinations. All told, some 2,000 critters call the aquarium home, including numerous rare seahorses, giant octopi, lobsters, crabs, stingrays, as well as otters (look out for Mango and Starsky!).
St Philip's Cathedral:
St. Philip's Cathedral was built in 1715 created life as a parish church and was elevated to its present status in 1905. The cathedral was gutted during a bombing raid in 1940, but foresight saw its famous stained glass windows by Burne-Jones (1884) removed a few weeks prior. In the present day, these noteworthy treasures - returned to their rightful place when the cathedral was rebuilt in 1948 - are a highlight of any trip to Birmingham. Another religious structure worth visiting is St. Martin's Church. Dating from the 13th century, it also features windows by Burne-Jones.
Cadbury world is traced just a short drive from Birmingham. Cadbury World is one of the area's largest (and most popular) attractions, welcoming more than 500,000 visitors each year. It was built by the Cadbury family after 1860 specifically to house their large workforce. The renowned chocolate plant where you can order a liquid pot of choc with your choice of sweet treat added, from marshmallows to moreish candies.
Black Country Living Museum, Dudley:
Nine miles away from Birmingham in the metropolis of Dudley, The Black Country Living Museum offers visitors a vivid insight into the history of mining (hence the "black"). Other highlights include the chance to interact with costumed guides well-versed in the histories of the local people, plenty of unique shopping opportunities, vintage buses and commercial vehicles, along with an old-fashioned English fun fair from the 19th century.
Old Coventry Cathedral:
The Old Coventry Cathedral was built in 1373 and formerly one of the chief parish churches in England, and was eminent to cathedral status only in 1918. After the devastating blitz of 1940, however, only a few sections of the external walls remained, together with the slender 303-foot-high spire. The old cathedral at its eastern terminal, a cross - fashioned from two charred beams rescued from the ruins - is a poignant symbol and reminder of the destruction. (Interesting fact: the sacristies were rebuilt after the war with help from young German volunteers.)
St. Michael's Cathedral:
St. Michael's Cathedral was designed by Sir Basil Spence and opened in 1962 that has a tall, canopied porch links the old cathedral ruins with modern St. Michael's Cathedral. The walls of the 420-foot-long nave are built in zigzag fashion, the offset concrete panels alternating with windows facing the altar. Most prominent piece, though, is the huge glass screen at the building's west end. Engraved with figures of angels, saints, and patriarchs, it creates a striking visual link, both with the old cathedral ruins and the busy city streets outside. An extraordinary piece is the baptistery, with its font hewn from stone from Bethlehem, and the stained glass Sunburst Window.
Coventry Transport Museum:
The historic Museum compromises an enthralling elucidation of the history of road transport in Britain. Be prepared to stay awhile, though, as this is one massive museum. Highlights include an impressive collection of more than 300 cycles, 120 motorcycles, and more than 250 cars and commercial vehicles, many of them related to Coventry's rich past as the center of Britain's motor vehicle manufacturing industry. Collections comprise royal limousines; cars of the 1940s, 1950s, and 1960s; as well as numerous fun interactive educational displays.
Another first-rate Coventry attraction is the excellent Herbert Art Gallery and Museum. Frequently denoted to as The Herbert and named after one of the city's most philanthropic industrialists, Alfred Herbert, the museum boasts numerous fine sculptures, paintings, and clothing exhibits from the 19th and 20th centuries.
