As you plan your holiday, finding Birmingham hotels should be as easy as banoffee pie, since the city is a major transit hub for the entire UK. And if you wanna see The Big Smoke, you can always book accommodation in London too and extend your travels southward.
We’d recommend you visit all of Birmingham’s parks, but that’d be like telling you to try all of its curry houses—there’s just too much awesome to get through! Instead, we’ll suggest you go boating on the lake at Cannon Hill Park, near the University of Birmingham. To chill out closer to the city centre, head to St. Philip’s Cathedral and grounds. From there, you’ll be a short walk from Birmingham Museum & Art Gallery, the historic Town Hall and the Pen Museum. Yes, this museum dedicated to writing instruments is a tourist favourite, proving that the pen really is mightier than…well, the pencil. If you’re in the mood for dinner and a show, take in a concert downtown at Symphony Hall or settle in for a play at the Hippodrome after a tasty bite in Jewellery Quarter. When you’re ready to call it a night well spent, relax in a cosy Birmingham hotel with views of Highsbury Park.
Touch down at Birmingham Airport (BHX), about 14 km east of the city centre. Like most of the UK, Birmingham has great public transport and is generally pretty walkable. For more independence, take the wheel of one of Wotif’s awesome car hire options and hit the road.
