    Reasons to visit Birmingham

    All about Birmingham tourism

    Birmingham is England’s second most-populated city and one of the country’s main hubs of culture and commerce. It’s relatively simply to travel to Birmingham: those arriving at Birmingham Airport can take the Air-Rail Link to Birmingham International Station and catch a train to New Street, the city’s main rail station. Or, you can make your trip to Birmingham on one of its multiple rail connections with London, Manchester, and other any other British city.

    Arts and culture are the stars of Birmingham tourism. The Royal Ballet and Birmingham Symphony Orchestra are among the most respected in the world, and the Birmingham Museum & Art Gallery has an impressive collection of Italian masters and English art. Birmingham also has a thriving theatre scene. Try your luck at various smaller theatres or at larger venues like the Hippodrome which host acclaimed ballet, music, and comedy acts.

    Also, take time during your holiday in Birmingham to explore the Jewllery Quarter, a charming neighborhood full of 19th-century jewelers, independent art galleries, and, as of late, a thriving pub and nightlife scene. If you’re in the mood for some shopping, you should head to the Bullring, a traditional market square that is now home to bustling modern shopping centres. Speaking of markets, make sure to check out the German Market in Victoria Square if your Birmingham vacation coincides with the holiday season.

    Finally, you can’t visit Birmingham without seeing the National Sea Life Centre, a world-class aquarium built by the architect Norman Foster.
