Birmingham — 6 nights

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.
Get out of town with these interesting Birmingham side-trips: Batsford Arboretum (in Moreton-in-Marsh), Hook Norton Brewery (in Hook Norton) and Stratford-upon-Avon (Stratford-upon-Avon Canal & Shakespeare's Birthplace). There's still lots to do: examine the collection at Cadbury World, admire the masterpieces at Birmingham Museum & Art Gallery, contemplate the long history of Warwick Castle, and brush up on your knowledge of spirits at Cotswolds Distillery.

To see reviews, maps, other places to visit, and more tourist information, you can read our Birmingham road trip tool.

In November, plan for daily highs up to 11°C, and evening lows to 4°C. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 28th (Sun) so you can travel back home.

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.
