Do & See

Selfridges at The Bullring

This might be a department store, but Future System’s shimmering and organically billowing design for Selfridges has nevertheless become an architectural landmark.
Chamberlain Square

Chamberlain Square

The square is bounded on one side by John Madin’s – in most people’s opinion – ugly library building. At the other end stands the beautiful Birmingham Museum & Art Gallery.
Do & See

Jewellery Quarter

The Jeweller’s Quarter is worth a visit, a vibrant gem with 100´s jewellery retailers and designers. You should also visit the museum on Vyse Street, called Museum of the Jewellery Quarter.
Birmingham Town Hall

Birmingham Town Hall

Designed by Joseph Hansom and inaugurated in 1832. This is the site of the premiere of Mendelssohn’s Elijah. The magnificent building underwent far-reaching renovations in 2007.
Do & See

St. Martin’s

Originally dating from 13th century, the contrast with the futuristic facade of the Bullring shopping centre is extreme, but this does not diminish the value of the church, either visually, historically, or as a meeting place.
Sutton Park

Sutton Park

Sutton Park is 9.5 kilometres north of Birmingham and is said to be Europe’s largest urban park. It covers all of 9.7 square kilometres (2,400 acres).
Do & See

Twycross Zoo

Only 30 minutes from Birmingham you can see more than 1. 000 animals at the Twycross Zoo! Discover different primates, mammals, reptiles, birds and much more. You name it, they got it!
