Solihull is often voted one of the very best places to live in the UK, which of course makes it a great place to explore if you’re staying in one of our Solihull hotels. Our local guide is here to help you make the most of what the town has to offer. For starters, it has one of the best food scenes in the region, so we’ll show you the restaurants where you’ll have a meal to remember. We’ll also delve into all of the exciting activities and attractions, including the nearby Genting Arena, the excellent Touchwood shopping centre, museums, parks, cocktail bars and much, much more.
Touchwood is one of the best shopping centres in the country, with popular retail names like John Lewis, Zara and Hollister. Between there and Mell Square, you can take your pick from a huge range of designer brands and high street retailers.
Solihull is known for the NEC and nearby National Motorcycle Museum, but there are some other cultural attractions that aren't to be missed, including its spectacular annual carnival in Tudor Grange Park.
Learn about The Core, Solihull’s one-size-fits-all entertainment venue that hosts drama, comedy, dance and music most nights of the week. Plus, learn more about the town’s alternative sporting options too.
During the daytime, you can take your pick of some top-class tearooms and a German café that does the best schnitzel outside of Deutschland. In the evenings, you can choose from the best Italian restaurants in England, gastropubs galore and the area’s only Michelin-starred establishment.
