Located in the West Midlands, Birmingham is truth be told pretty hard not to be able to find. As one of the Countries major cities it is a place that will cause you no problems at all on getting there no matter where you are coming from.
What’s On & When To Go
As a major city Birmingham has things on all year round. There are a ton of music festivals on during the summer months ranging from huge ones like the Wireless festival to something more laid back and low key such as the Jazz, Funk & Soul Festival. It’s not an exaggeration to say that no matter what your musical taste, be it something awesome like Guns N Roses or some X Factor style garbage, I kid, I kid…. Well not really that music is just god awful, but if that is your thing there will be something on in Birmingham you can get into.
Even in the winter the city does not go to sleep there are Christmas markets and all kinds of cool stuff going on. Just make sure you wrap up warm as like most other places in the UK its freezing in the winter.
It would take a man much greater than I….. and one with more patience to write down all of the things you can do in Birmingham as there really is that much stuff to do. But here are a few of the highlights of what the city has to offer. Just remember that this city caters for a romantic break, a lads or lasses weekend away and a family holiday as well.

National Motorcycle Museum, if you are a biker then this is a place you simply must go. This has a huge collection of amazingly restored motorcycles and they keep adding new ones. Or so I am told after an incident with me sitting on one of them I was told not to come back so make sure you look and do not touch. Still this is an amazing place and many people come to the city specifically to check it out.
Dome Club, how the heck do you describe exactly what the Dome Club is? This place sees you sitting or lying on the floor as you are surround by a huge dome that is like a giant video wall, except it goes all around it. It’s an experience like no other and I guarantee you will be lost for words when trying to explain to someone what this place was like.
Symphony Hall is one of the most stand out land marks in the city. This place just looks amazing and they have some great musical performances happening all year round.
