Birmingham Travel Guide

by our United Kingdom expert Terry Emery
 
Terry EmeryThe heart of the industrial revolution in Britain, England’s ‘second city’ retains many links with that past but boasts a thriving 21st century life and culture. There are still ‘metal-bashing’ factories and the unique Jewellery Quarter, but Symphony Hall and the Simon Rattle-shaped CBSO orchestra are rightly world famous. In the very centre of the city, the two strands come together with the 19th century canal junction around the evocatively-named Gas Street Basin transformed into a glittering nightlife area of cafes, clubs and starred restaurants. The National Exhibition Centre draws countless visitors and Birmingham has the infrastructure to cater for all.
