Sightseeing in Birmingham

In the middle of England lies the country's second biggest city named Birmingham. The city has an industrial background and is probably not the most attractive in the UK. However, there has been a significant investment in the city and there is now a blend of the old and new with the bullring shopping center as one of the centerpieces. Some of the city sights include Birmingham cathedral, St. Martin in the Bull Ring, Aston Hall and Cadbury world.

The heart of the city is formed by the town hall and Victoria square. This is a good example of some of the highlights that existed in Birmingham's past. When you walk around you can't escape the feeling that once this must have been a thriving city with some wealthy influences but at some point has had a little too much influence from some unattractive architecture. Too compensate for this there are several small parks around the city. It is amazing though how a bit of sunshine brightens up this city. Birmingham hosts the hippodrome which is one of the largest venues in the UK. Also with Birmingham being a large city there are many shops which still attracts many visitors.

Birmingham is around 1.5-2 hours away from London by train, so it is possible to visit it on a day trip. From here it is also possible to travel further north to cities such as Manchester and Liverpool.
