See some of Southside
Once an unremarkable district of Birmingham’s centre, Southside has emerged to become a distinctive part of the city’s fabric over the past decade. This shift has been driven by a unique and eclectic mix of developments, including the clubs, restaurants and bars that make up Southside’s Chinese Quarter and Gay Village, and the rejuvenated Birmingham Hippodrome. Today, Southside is a vibrant and immersive area, where you’ll never run out of things to see and experience.
Birmingham - the Midlands’ Metropolis
With a metropolitan economy second only to London’s, Birmingham has come a long way in recent years, and today is packed with a wide range of exciting attractions, eateries, and cultural centres. Here, you can enjoy family days out at attractions like Cadbury World, explore futuristic marvels like the Library of Birmingham and the Selfridges Bullring shopping centre, and treat your taste buds to a delectable meal at restaurants in the Balti Triangle and other popular food districts.
