Things to do in Birmingham
Look around and you’ll see history on every street. Explore the famous Jewellery Quarter, where almost half of the UK’s jewellery is still made today and ramble along back streets stopped in time, or visit the Back to Backs to see how people lived in the height of the Industrial Revolution. At Birmingham Museum & Art Gallery there will be a series of pop-up displays and live events that bring a different feel to the historic building for 2022, or simply stroll along the scenic canals to see Birmingham at its very best. If culture is your thing, visit the Symphony Hall for some wonderful music or the Birmingham Hippodrome – the busiest theatre outside of the West End – for a play. Any production by Birmingham Royal Ballet is sure to transport you with its romance and talent.
