Birmingham is the second biggest city in the UK, and has undergone a dramatic transformation in recent years resulting in a vibrant and cosmopolitan city that oozes style, culture and charm.
The £500 million Bullring development, the iconic Selfridges building, the elegant Victorian arcades and the upmarket shops in the Mailbox have confirmed Birmingham's reputation as the regional shopping capital.
Birmingham boasts a world class culture, staging national and international sporting championships and international conferences at the ICC. It has the UK's finest concert venue, Symphony Hall, and the most popular exhibition centre in Europe, the NEC.
Its canal network is bigger than Venice's! Birmingham also has a vibrant nightlife and offers gastronomic delights from every corner of the globe. All these combine to make Birmingham one of Europe's most exciting and energetic cities.
