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.
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.
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.
The city has two major football clubs, Birmingham City FC and Aston Villa FC. The former plays in England's Second Division Championship and plays his home games at St Andrew's.
Arch-rivals Aston Villa FC have from the 2019-2020 season stepped up in the country's highest division Premier League after a couple of years in the second division. Their stadium Villa Park is located in the Aston district.

The Premier League started on 12/9 and initially the stands will be closed. The clubs' arenas are approved for reduced capacity and when fans are welcome in the stands, it is anything from 20% -40% as it looks right now.
How does this affect you as a traveler?
You have probably read in the media that the places that are released will only go to members of the club. This is to some extent true, but we are proud to announce that GO Sport Travel, through long and very good relations with the clubs, will keep our agreements in line with the reduced capacity the clubs will soon present.
With the help of GO Sport Travel AB, you can continue to be one of those who sit in the stands and experience the Premier League live, already in October!
It is planned that each visitor needs to take certain wise measures, such as wearing a mouth guard, etc. In addition, each visitor's name will be printed on the ticket, and subsequent identity checks will take place upon arrival at the arena area.
In short, each visitor must have their ticket registered by the club. The registration is of course handled by GO Sport Travel on behalf of the visitor.
The clubs are very happy to have a high level of security in which visitors they have in place, both for themselves and the visitors. The clubs also hope that the number of less desirable ticket players will decrease. We encourage you to be observant when listening to other actors.
There may be ticket / tour operators who will convey that the above restrictions will not be required, but this is not correct information.
We look forward to announcing soon when we, together with the clubs, open the sale for the upcoming Premier League season.
