What To Do

Birmingham is well known for its dining scene and nightlife. You can enjoy an eclectic selection of cuisine from pub eateries rich with history, to Michelin Starred restaurants. Visit the Jewelry Quarter, where 40% of Britain’s jewelry is made or stroll the urban parks and gardens throughout the city.  It is easy to get around with great public transportation. Venture just outside the city and you will find acres of green countryside. Do not miss the colorful diversity of this historic and vibrant city.

When to Go

Spring and summer bring in a high volume of crowds at high tourist season. Summertime calls for longer days and a variety of festivals including the Birmingham Design Festival.

Spring is popular for major sporting events such as the world renowned Yonex ALL England Open Badminton Championships. Early spring and late fall are great times to visit if you want to enjoy the city with less crowds and to get more for your dollar. April and October are beautiful times to watch the seasons change with a stroll along the canals and inner-city parks. 

A visit during the holiday season is a magical experience, with smaller crowds and magnificent winter markets.
