Birmingham is a major city in the West Midlands region of England, with numerous landmarks of the Industrial Revolution period that refer to its past as a growing powerhouse in the 18th century. The Birmingham Museum and Art Gallery are known for its pre-Raphaelite mast in the city Centre.
Birmingham is regarded as the 'first manufacturing city in the world' and was proclaimed in 1889 as the 'Capital of a Thousand Trades.' Although most visitors are headed straight for London, little do they know that Birmingham, the sleeping giant of the UK, is just 90 minutes away by train. This is not just some old town; it is the second largest city in the United Kingdom and is worth a visit
For those relocating from London, Birmingham is at the top of the list. It is one of the youngest cities in Europe and it is also one of the most innovative, so it's no wonder that creatives migrate to one of the country's most developed cities.
Birmingham has more kilometers of canal than Venice, all of which are daily used by small boats and people on foot or by bike along the well-developed footpaths. The canals seem to follow the train line, so if you want to stroll a summer evening without getting lost, Birmingham is ideal
New buildings are coming up all the time, and you're likely to end up seeing something different on your next visit when you visit them once. The HSBC bank has also planned to relocate from London to Birmingham, with brand new headquarters being constructed in the town center on Broad Street.
Once more popular than its Michelin stars for its Dunlop tyres, UK's second city has recently been turned into a proper food haven on an equal footing with many capitals across the globe. From secret speakeasies to creative meaderies and award-winning gin spots.
The bar scene in Birmingham is a thing of beauty. So, if you're looking for drinks with the crew, pints after work, or somewhere to impress a date, we've completed our favorite Brum watering holes with everything from plucky cocktail bars in Birmingham to the best places to listen to live music.
There are a few nudist beaches in the UK but Morfa Dyffryn Naturist Beach, in Gwynedd, North Wales, is closest to Birmingham. This is a several miles long sandy beach, and an officially recognized naturist location. Weston-super-Mare is the nearest beach to Birmingham, followed by Blackpool and Rhyl, by our reckoning and dependent on travel time.

It was a great rental experience thanx! The guys at Dollar was exceptionally friendly and gave me a super nice car, really more than I expected! Please be so kind as to indicate on the confirmation letter where these various car rental companies stop with their Shuttles at LHR Airport Terminals.
