City of a Thousand Trades

Britain's second-largest city, Birmingham was known as the City of a Thousand Trades and the Workshop of the World in the Victorian era.
Your day by day itinerary now includes Adventure Island Mini Golf as well as Birmingham Bouldering Centre. Change things up with these side-trips from Birmingham: Coventry (Flight Simulators Midlands & 22 Bayley Lane Coventry) and Dudley (Dudley Zoo and Castle & Black Country Living Museum). There's much more to do: examine the collection at Cadbury World, don't miss a visit to Brindleyplace, head outdoors with Gingerbread Graphics - A Wolf In Sheep's Clothing, and get lost in a book at Library of Birmingham.

To see photos, traveler tips, more things to do, and other tourist information, use the Birmingham online journey maker.

Although it lacks access to the sea, West Midlands has no shortage of tourist attractions, including unspoiled natural wonders, modern cities, and sprawling rural areas. The region’s main urban center is Birmingham, the second-largest city in the UK, offering some of the best nightlife and culinary options in this part of the country. Although heavily populated and industrialized, this region abounds in hidden rural corners, where the charms of old England endure right alongside modern cafes, pubs, and shops. Consider venturing beyond the region’s big cities during your holiday to tour the numerous well-preserved stately houses, lush parks and gardens, and quiet villages that dot the countryside.
