A guide to your first visit to Birmingham

While most tourists head straight to London, only a few visit United Kingdom’s sleeping giant, the unique Birmingham. It is just 90 minutes by train from London and the second largest city in UK. Birmingham is a historic city and played an important role during the Industrial Revolution. Although the city’s industrial past is evident, a long and successful reconstruction project has gradually transformed Birmingham into a vibrant and modern city. The sights of the city are many, interesting and unique. Birmingham also has an important cultural scene, while its culinary scene is very active and refreshing (it is the city in the UK with the most Michelin stars). In our article we try to present a guide for your first visit to the city in an effort to present the most significant highlights.
