Flights to Birmingham

Creativity and invention are in Birmingham’s DNA. At the height of the industrial revolution, the English city was known as the "workshop of the world"; it has registered three times as many patents as any other city. A flight to Birmingham will take you to the city that gave the world the modern steam engine, Cadbury’s chocolate, lawn tennis, HP Sauce, the Mini, Dunlop tires, the first professional soccer league, Brylcreem, and lots more.

Today, as one of the youngest cities in Europe, Brum, as it’s affectionately known, continues to reinvent itself. It’s packed with cultural attractions, from historic sights such as the Grade I listed Jacobean mansion Aston Hall to Villa Park, home of the Aston Villa Football Club. Then there are the world-class acoustics of Symphony Hall and the Birmingham Royal Ballet at the Hippodrome Theatre.

It’s a city on the rise, as you can see from its acres of green spaces and miles of rejuvenated canals leading to the stunning new Library of Birmingham and the modernist structure of the Selfridges building at the iconic Bullring shopping center. In fact, Brum is one of the top destinations for shopping in the UK, with an eclectic retail scene that ranges from the renowned Jewellery Quarter to its exclusive mall, the Mailbox.

You’ll want to save some of your pennies for Birmingham’s food and drink, too, and the diverse dining scene that reflects the city’s cosmopolitan population. There’s everything from Michelin-starred restaurants to a vibrant street-food culture. Add a thriving network of independent coffee shops, and it’s clear Birmingham is a culinary force to be reckoned with.

Each of Brum’s eclectic neighborhoods has something to offer. In post-industrial Digbeth, you’ll find a vibrant creative community; trendy Moseley has more of an indie vibe, and King’s Heath is pure suburbia. At the heart of Birmingham’s appeal are the good-humored, down-to-earth "Brummies."

What to do in Birmingham

Take the Tolkien trail

Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit author JRR Tolkien was inspired by his childhood in Birmingham. Of his old haunts, idyllic Sarehole Mill is now a museum and the Moseley Bog Nature Reserve is a true hidden gem. Nearer the city center, Perrott’s Folly and the Edgbaston Waterworks tower inspired The Two Towers.

Birmingham’s street food scene has taken off in the past few years with the arrival of Digbeth Dining Club.
