The Bull, Bullring, Birningham

In stark contrast to the medieval and ‘black and white’ Tudor architectural imprint of the neighbouring countryside, Birmingham delivers industrial heritage, shopping, galleries, fascinating museums, major entertainment venues including Utilita Arena Birmingham and attractions such as Sea Life and Cadbury World.

England’s dynamic, multicultural second city (after London) is fuelled by the image-conscious digital, creative and arty set who live and work in city hubs and precincts. There’s a young vibe in the cafes, clubs and pubs, world-class entertainment, dining, nightlife and LGBTQ+ scene.

Birmingham has a switched-on feel with contemporary galleries, the ‘wedding cake’ library building and major retail complexes including the iconic Bullring & Grand Central.
