Travelling around Birmingham
If you want something to keep you entertained, then Birmingham is the place to visit. This rich and diverse city is a vibrant hub of culture that’s just waiting to be explored.
Due to the vastness of the city – it is the second most populous city in the UK– you’ll find a wealth of public transport to take you far and wide. Arriva operates frequent bus services from Birmingham, taking you to and from Tamworth, with stops at places such as Mile Oak, Whitehouse Common, Fazeley and Sutton Coldfield.
A popular student city, Birmingham is filled with a wide variety of places to eat and drink. From street chains to Michelin starred restaurants, and from street dining to independent eateries, you’ll discover places that serve food from across the world. Make sure you try out the famous Balti Triangle too.
If you love nothing more than to shop, Birmingham truly is a shopper’s paradise. From the historic markets and famous jewellery quarter to the Bullring and independent retailers, you’ll find more than your fair share of wonders here.
After all that shopping, make sure you head out and explore the area. You’ll find an array of vibrant art galleries and museums, such as the IKON Gallery, Shakespeare’s New Place, and the Birmingham Museum and Art Gallery. The attractions here are second to none.
There are also stunning green spaces to explore amongst all the hustle and bustle of city life, such as Castle Bromwich Hall and Gardens, and historic buildings to admire, like Birmingham Cathedral. This contains four pre-Raphaelite windows and stunning architecture.
