Birmingham is home to the Bullring, one of the most popular shopping centres in the UK. This cutting-edge building boasts an upmarket Selfridges store, as well as Hugo Boss, John Lewis and more. On top of that, there’s the historic Jewellery Quarter which dates back over 205 years, but still has over 500 jewellery stores.
South of the centre of Birmingham, you’ll find Cadbury World. It’s based in the model village Bournville, set up back in the 1860s. Discover the magic of chocolate making and visit the world’s biggest Cadbury shop. For natural wonders, there’s the Birmingham Wildlife Conservation Park and National Sea Life Centre. The NEC is also world-famous for its huge exhibitions.
There’s an array of arts and educational activities on offer in Birmingham. The Symphony Hall is one of the city’s shining glories for its perfect acoustics and huge mechanical organ. You’ll also be fascinated by the Thinktank Science Museum, which has a planetarium and a Spitfire plane hanging from the ceiling! You can also enjoy free entry to the Birmingham Museum & Art Gallery.
