About Birmingham

                    Birmingham City Council 

Birmingham is Britain’s second-largest city and is situated right in the heart of England.  We are only 90 minutes away from London by train and Stratford upon Avon, Warwick, Oxford, the Cotswolds and Wales are only a short journey away. It is a city of culture, combined with superb shopping, great nightlife, and award-winning restaurants.

The spectacular Library of Birmingham is Europe’s largest regional library and is a flagship for the redevelopment of the city. Grab a coffee, a book and sample the extraordinary views from the roof.

                            Brindley Place

Birmingham boasts more canals than Venice, and there is nowhere better to experience this than Brindley Place on Broad Street, its canal side location hosts a wide range of restaurants, bars and cafes. Just a short walk away you will find the Mail Box, Selfridges Store and the Bullring; the site of a market for more than 800 years, it has been revamped into a state-of-the-art shopping centre making it one of the most popular destinations for retail therapy in the UK.
