A city full of surprises

Welcome to Birmingham, a diverse and dynamic city, vibrant by day and by night, a city where yesterday and today combine to give you a glimpse into a city full of surprises. With its fascinating history and world-class cultural scene, combined with superb shopping, major international events and exhibitions, great nightlife and award-winning restaurants, Birmingham has a unique quality with an exciting and dynamic spirit.

The Canals

Any Brummie will be proud to tell you that Birmingham has more canals than Venice. Beneath the hustle and bustle of England’s second city exists a tranquil world where remnants of its industrial heritage still survive and many of the streets and pubs are named after the canal builders and industrialists of Birmingham.

These waterways converge at the city centre bustle of Gas Street Basin, where historic boats and canal architecture mingle with modern-day restaurants, cafes and pubs. The canals were the life-blood of Victorian Birmingham and the Black Country with gas lighting installed beside the locks to permit round-the-clock operation.

Culture and heritage

Cosmopolitan in its make-up, Birmingham is an exciting city, hosting a range of visual and performing arts and a variety of music and theatre, difficult to surpass. Home to the City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra and Birmingham Royal Ballet, Birmingham really is a city of world-class culture.

Food and drink

The diverse and dynamic culture of the city is reflected in the wide choice of international cuisine and restaurants in Birmingham. Most famous of all is the area in the city known as the ‘Balti Triangle’. This delicacy (a uniquely spiced curry served in an iron pot) originated on the Indian sub-continent and was perfected by chefs in Birmingham restaurants. You’ll enjoy a memorable meal and at good value for money.

Music and nightlife

When it comes to nightlife in Birmingham, you’ll be spoilt for choice. Brindley Place in the city’s canal-side development is the perfect place to start the night. Broad Street, lined with pubs, clubs and restaurants, is one of the busiest quarter miles in Europe. And no visit to Birmingham is complete without discovering the delights of the Jewellery Quarter and St Paul’s Square, where you’ll find great live music.


Birmingham is a shopper’s paradise, with restored arcades, modern malls and markets, boutiques and high street stores. Don’t miss the Bullring in the heart of the city. With 140 shops and 2 department stores (including the architecturally stunning Selfridges), your only problem will be choosing where to start first!
