Birmingham Holidays

Birmingham Holidays,

United Kingdom

Second, only to London in size, Birmingham makes an ideal holiday destination for anyone wanting to spend time in an eclectic and vibrant hotspot with plenty of personality, and some of the best Indian food outside of Asia. Responsible for an estimated 40% of the UK's jewellery, Birmingham's Jewellery Quarter is a treasure-trove of silver, gold and precious stones. However, if you'd like to embrace the city's cultural scene, make a beeline for Digbeth, which is where you'll find live music, exciting theatre performances, and an abundance of art galleries. For wide open spaces head to the south of the city, where you'll find a surprising array of parks and greenery.
