A top-class events venue at Birmingham Town Hall
Situated in the heart of Birmingham in Victoria Square, the neo-classical pillars of Birmingham Town Hall are instantly recognisable. Joined with the Symphony Hall, it's a popular events venue that's seen music artists from jazz to rock take to its stage.
You can also visit the Town Hall by day to learn all about the building's heritage, from its origins in the 19th century to the prime ministers and famous authors, including Charles Dickens, who have walked its halls.
Get cultured at Birmingham Museum and Art Gallery
Birmingham Museum and Art Gallery boasts over 40 galleries featuring art and artefacts from around the globe, starting with Birmingham itself. Tour the maze of rooms in this fantastic building to discover art and history through the ages, from Ancient Egypt to the pre-Raphaelites.
See a real-life mummy, dress up as an Old English peasant, and view the famous Staffordshire Hoard - a collection of Anglo-Saxon treasures including an almost perfectly-intact sword.
A shopper's paradise at the Bullring
Birmingham's most prized possession is the Bullring, a huge shopping centre best-known for its spaceship-like silver Selfridges shell. With over 160 shops to choose from, there's something for everyone here.
Inside Selfridges, you'll find four floors of fashion, beauty and food, including a life-sized bull made from jelly beans. And with plenty of food on offer, from sushi to burgers, you won't go hungry either.
