The city of Birmingham has the hustle and bustle feel of London, even though it is slightly smaller population wise. It is that type of ambiance and atmosphere that makes people from all over the world fly into this city’s airport to enjoy the magnificent views of the canals, as well as the art and culture of the museums and galleries.
Here are 4 sights that everyone should see and explore when they are in Birmingham, UK:
The Space-like Bullring Shopping Centre
Everyone loves shopping when they are traveling, and there is no better place to go in Birmingham than Bullring Shopping Centre. More than fifteen thousand aluminum discs cover the outside of the shopping centre, making it look like a spaceship has just landed near the middle of the city.
Inside, visitors can explore over one hundred stores that sell everything from clothing to jewelry. Of course, there are also numerous bars, cafés, and restaurants that people can stop into for a bite to eat or something to drink.
This area of Birmingham was dedicated to Queen Victoria back in 1901 and nowadays, people go there to see the ancient churches and homes, as well as the government buildings and statues scattered throughout.
Walking is the best way to explore this area of the city, and while it is beautiful at any time of the year, it is best seen during the holidays when the Christmas Market opens up.
Castle Bromwich Hall Gardens
These gardens were first established during the 16th century and while many years have passed since that time, they have been carefully restored as they were back then. T
here are ten acres within the gardens and more than six hundred plant and flower species from the late 16th and early 17th centuries can be found there.
Another prominent feature is the holly maze and many people find that they can spend hours walking around this open space.
The Numerous Canals
Canals are everywhere in this city, which is excellent for those who love to walk, run, or ride a bike, as they look out over water. Many people also want to see the city from the water, and that is easy with a boat ride around a few of the canals.
The boat rides are lengthy, but the views from that vantage point are extraordinary and many of those views cannot be seen any other way.
These are the four sights that everyone should see right after they land at the airport in Birmingham, but there are plenty of other things for people to do when they are finished.
The challenge will be completing everything on a must-do itinerary before heading back to the airport to fly home.
