Situated in the heart of England, Birmingham is the UK’s unofficial second city. A buzzing metropolis, Birmingham also makes the perfect base to explore the wider area with all manner of different sights and attractions within easy reach.
Birmingham city centre has some of the best shopping in the UK. The famous Bullring Shopping Centre has over 160 shops for you to explore with ample parking provided under Selfridge’s flagship store.
If you hire a car, just a short drive out of the city lies the chocolate lovers’ paradise, Cadbury World, boasting fourteen zones dedicated to the history and magic of chocolate making. After your visit, you may well be tempted load the car up with a few purchases from the world's largest Cadbury's chocolate shop.
The contrast between the old and the new is what makes Birmingham and the surrounding area unique. Another short drive away is the birthplace of William Shakespeare, Stratford-upon-Avon, which offers a host of events and exhibitions focused on the Bard.
