Birmingham is a city in the West Midlands of England. It is the second largest city in the UK after the capital London. A historic old town, which still feels modern. Much because large parts of the city were allowed to be rebuilt after major destruction during World War II.

Birmingham is known as a great music city and has performed many great bands through the ages, including Black Sabbath, Duran Duran and Judas Priest.

Attractions in the city

A landmark to visit in Birmingham is the spectacular Selfridges Building. A large department store with an amazing exterior. The facade consists of about 16,000 silver-colored palettes that are lit up by colored lights in the evening. The department store is part of the Bullring Shopping Center, the largest central shopping center in the UK. Take the opportunity to take a picture with the famous Birmingham Bull, the statue that stands in the center and is a symbol of the city.

At the Birmingham Museum & Art Gallery you can find everything in art and culture. Collections of jewelry, paintings and ceramics along with archeological finds and the city's industrial history. Admission to the museum is free, but some temporary exhibitions may require an entrance fee.

Affirm the child in you and pay a visit to Cadbury World. The chocolate maker, which is behind, among other things, the famous "Fingers biscuits", is the UK's equivalent of Marabou. In this Willy Wonka-inspired place, you can learn all about the history of chocolate and see when the chocolate masters practice their art. Do not miss to try any of their delicious chocolate drinks.

The food to experience in Birmingham

Birmingham is a real curry mecca. This is because large parts of the immigrants in the city originate from India. One of the most famous dishes that has emerged in the city is "Balti", the curry stew on lamb or chicken, onions, garlic, turmeric and garam masala. Served in a traditional "balti bowl", a bowl in cast iron with two steel handles.

We recommend a visit to Shahi Nan Kabab at 353 Stratford Road if you want to experience authentic well-cooked Balti. There is generally spicy food, but milder alternatives are available.
