Enjoyable West Midlands Vacations And The City Of Birmingham

Filed under : Hotels, Vacation Rentals

The city of Birmingham is situated in the county of England called the West Midlands and the city’s residents are called “Brummies”. Birmingham’s accent is a strong northern English sounding dialect and it can be rather difficult to fully comprehend what is being said a struggle which is made worse if if you are new to such accents. Happily the majority of Brummies are helpful, polite and kind and do their very best to explain so if necessary do not be afraid to approach folk about directions and help or guidance in locating Birmingham bed & breakfast accommodation.

The city has  a healthy selection of visitor attractions which include some highly interesting and equally informative museums and galleries, such as the highly enjoyable Ikon Gallery, Barber Institute of Fine Arts and the new Thinktank in the Eastside. The city also possesses a stunning number of hectares of parks and open spaces, Sutton Park is the largest having 970 hectares making it the largest urban nature reserve in the whole of the UK and Europe.

The city of Birmingham has a varied and vibrant night life with many restaurants, nightclubs, bars and cafes. You will discover most in one of the city’s squares, Victoria Square, Rotunda Square, Chamberlain Square, St Martin’s Square, the historic Old Square at Corporation Street, Centenary Square and the Gas Street Basin. Gas Street Basin is the hub of Birmingham’s intricate network of canals. The city has roughly 32 miles of canals with a total of eight canals which were dug during the 18th century and continued being used by local companies nearly until the end of the 20th century. These days the area has been renovated and regenerated and is now a highly popular tourist attraction.
