Birmingham Hotels

A huge, sprawling Midlands city, you might not realise that Birmingham is such a lively cultural hotspot. You’ll be pleasantly surprised by the vibrant arts scene in the city. The wonderful Birmingham Royal Ballet (formerly Sadler's Wells Royal Ballet) is justly renowned, and the unbelievable number of music festivals, from heavy metal to folk to jazz, blues and classical offer something for everyone! The city has a young population, so the club scene is very much alive and well with loads of bars, nightspots, and music pubs to check out. 

If you're a shopper, then you're halfway to heaven. Malls, markets, traditional shops and the 250 year old Jewellery Quarter are a mecca of material goods, so save those pennies for a big blowout! For an award-winning piece of architecture too, visit the Bullring Shopping Centre and grab a photo opportunity beside the enormous bronze bull sculpture. Birmingham is actually a great city for family holidays with fun attractions like Thinktank with its marvellous planetarium. This is an interactive science museum which will educate the little ones  and occupy them at the same time. National Sea Life Centre is an awe-inspiring underwater voyage with a huge variety of marine creatures. Of course, Cadbury World is a brilliant experience as the history of chocolate is unfurled and the aroma of all that melting, rich, chocolatey goodness fills the air. 

Not too far distant from Birmingham, the theme park Drayton Manor and famous Alton Towers Resort provide the perfect adrenalin rush. All daredevils are welcome to experience the biggest thrills imaginable. Birmingham can also be used as a platform to visit Shakespeare's country, as Stratford-upon-Avon is only a short hop away. 

Birmingham is a really fun, modern and vibrant city, alive both day and night. A city break here would never be boring! There are more attractions and distractions than you would ever imagine, so it is up to you to discover more.
