Fly to Birmingham

Brimming with attractions

Culturally diverse, vibrant Birmingham is a confident, outward-looking city with a big heart.

Major events and visitors are drawn here by world-class venues, exceptional facilities and outstanding attractions night and day. There’s something to suit just about everyone, no matter the length of your stay, whatever the time of year.

Birmingham is one of Britain’s great shopping destinations, home to major brands and niche stores alike. Did you know that 40% of all the UK’s jewellery originates in Birmingham’s Jewellery Quarter? Or that the city’s culinary scene offers multiple Michelin-star temptations as well as award-winning street food?

If you’re into the arts, you’ll love Birmingham

Catch the resident City Symphony Orchestra, the Birmingham Royal Ballet and the Opera Company. Be awestruck at the Birmingham Museum’s priceless Staffordshire Hoard – the largest find of Anglo-Saxon gold – and the enchanting paintings of the Pre-Raphaelites. That’s before you consider the British Motor Museum, Cadbury World and the multitude of shows and events at the National Exhibition Centre.

Relax in the city’s parks, such as Canon Hill and Castle Bromwich Hall (Birmingham has 8,000 acres of parks, more than Paris, not to mention more miles of canals than Venice). Thrill to a city sporting enough to host the 2022 Commonwealth Games. Explore beyond the city to the family-fun thrill extravaganza that is Alton Towers theme park, and to Stratford-upon-Avon and Shakespeare’s fascinating birthplace. Birmingham is much ado about a lot.
