There is much to do during the day in the city of Birmingham and perhaps the main site to visit would be the Birmingham Museum and Art Gallery. This is a Victorian building which has a fine selection of art including some of the world’s most famous artists such as William Morris and various other French and Italian 14th century figures.
Why not visit the canal-side where you will find the Ikon Gallery which is renowned in the whole continent. It mainly contains contemporary work from new artists.
Think-thank is a gallery based modern museum and also hosts other events such as aircraft and locomotives. The Mac Art Centre at Cannons Hill Park and the Barbers Institute of Fine Art are also worth mentioning for a relaxing day time activity.
Shopping in Birmingham is also deemed a mellow experience and the main venues are The Bullring and also the Mailbox Shopping Centre. The Bullring contains Selfridges, Debenhams, The Apple Store and over twenty restaurants. Mailbox is more fashion orientated and includes Harvey Nichols and Nicky Clarke hair salons. The Pavilions’ and the Piccadilly Arcades are also worth mentioning.
Birmingham Minibus and coach hire can transport you to such destinations with ease and comfort, and at affordable prices.
