More about Birmingham
From canals and waterways to museums and parks, Birmingham has so many great sights to take in. Throughout its history Birmingham has been a centre of industry and science, and that history is celebrated at the Thinktank Museum, which explores science and technology across the ages with hands-on exhibits to educate and entertain.
Birmingham’s Grand Central Station has been renovated and incorporated into the Bullring & Grand Central shopping centre, great for discovering high street and boutique outlets in the centre of the city. The Mailbox Shopping Centre offers a wide variety of designer label shops – it’s also where BBC Birmingham is based, with tours of the studio available to the public.
Birmingham Town Hall is an excellent venue and great for a night out in the heart of the city. There’s also the O2 Academy, which has a capacity of over 3000 and has seen acts like Lady Gaga, Arcade Fire and Katy Perry play on its stage. Birmingham Town Hall and the O2 Academy are just two of many great entertainment venues close to our hotels in Birmingham.
Villa Park, the home of Aston Villa FC is just a short drive north of Birmingham. A short walk away through Aston Park is Aston Hall, one of the world’s best preserved and Jacobean mansions, a grand house full of fascinating historical curiosities.
There’s plenty of relaxing green spaces to enjoy in Birmingham: Cannon Hill Park near the city centre is ideal for long walks or a spot of golf, Moseley Bog is a beautiful forest said to have inspired Tolkien when he wrote Lord of the Rings and Edgbaston Cricket Ground is alongside Edgbaston Reservoir, only a short walk from our Birmingham City Centre Bridge Street hotel.
