With something to keep everyone happy, Birmingham has a wealth of attractions, retail opportunities and cultural adventures, exactly as you’d expect from the second largest city in the UK. 

For interactive fun, award winning Thinktank offers exciting learning opportunities for all ages, and with its 360° underwater tunnel, the National Sea Life Centre allows you to experience hungry schools of Black Tip Reef sharks swimming eerily all around you, while jaw-droppingly huge giant rays ‘fly’ silently through the clear water. 

Birmingham has a wide variety of theatres, exhibition centres and playhouses, so if performance culture is your thing, visit the Hippodrome, the glorious Symphony Hall, or book tickets to see the award winning Royal Ballet

With enough retail opportunities to satisfy the biggest shopaholic, head for the Bullring shopping centre. There you will find over 200 high street brands, and designer labels, all under one very stylish roof. For unique gifts, and one-off artisan boutiques, the Jewellery Quarter and the Great Western Arcade are must visits, and while you’re there, enjoy the local delicacies and delicious fresh coffee.
