England's second city in the heart of the Midlands. Traditionally, this thriving city with it's one million population, has been the industrial heartland of the country; it is still important industrially but this has also made way for an increasingly high position in the service sector. Birmingham can now rank itself amongst the great international cities of the world with it's growing tourism and recognition as a centre for the theatre, Arts and Business.
Recently, Birmingham has seen many building developments such as The Mailbox and Brindley Place situated around its vast canal network. The old Bull Ring, once a noted landmark is currently being redeveloped and will become the home for many prestigious and national stores. Birmingham also has Star City - the largest Cinema and entertainment complex in Europe. Birmingham boasts several fine and diverse theatres including the recently refurbished Hippodrome which is home to the Birmingham Royal Ballet whilst Symphony Hall is the city's largest music venue and regularly hosts visiting orchestras and performers including the city's own Symphony Orchestra.
A wide variety of restaurants can be found, both in the city centre and it's numerous suburbs - these range from haute cuisine to the many popular Balti restaurants to be found in the now famous "Balti Triangle" with representatives from all countries and cultures in between.
The Chinese Quarter is a popular place to visit for an evening out as well as the area surrounding Broad Street with its many clubs, bars and pavement cafes.
Birmingham has many fine parks and other open spaces such as the nearby Lickey Hills and Cannock Chase and, for such a large city, the open countryside is within easy access. Venture only slightly further afield and you have a whole wealth of other attractions and places of interest and importance such as Stratford, Warwick, Coventry, the Black Country, the Cotswolds, Kenilworth, Worcester and the Malvern Hills
