As Britain's second city, Birmingham is a must-visit destination for a city break or longer stay. Packed with culture, innovation and history, it offers visitors a real diversity of experience, including architecturally-bold buildings, a historically-rich waterway, incredible food and drink, luxury shopping and fantastic green spaces. See the Botanical Garden and Greenhouses, explore the jewellery quarter, drink in a Peaky Blinders' style bar and enjoy fine dining in one of the many award-winning restaurants.

Amazingly, Birmingham has more miles of canal than Venice! So, explore the waterways with a canal boat cruise and sit back with a glass of something sparkly as your tour guide does the hard work. If you've got the energy to burn, make sure to take the children to the new Bear Grylls Adventure, which is packed with challenging assault courses to suit all abilities. Cadbury World is a must for confectionary lovers, and if you're partial to a cocktail or two you'll be spoilt for choice with Birmingham's many bars. Head to the Creative Quarter for an artisan burger or an exotic cuisine for lunch before taking a short train journey to the Black Country Living Museum. Treat yourself to something sparkly in the city's famous jewellery quarter, with its own museum, followed by some serious retail therapy in the city centre's superb shops. If you still have the energy, a Peaky Blinder's walking tour is great fun, and then you'll have the evening to take in the city's wealth of theatre, live music, comedy, food, drink and clubs!
