Our hotel teams are experts when it comes to their cities and love to give our guests insider tips on their city’s hidden gems and the best things to see & do. So in response to this research, we asked our Birmingham team to create a short video on how to see the best of their city in just 36 minutes on foot or just a short car ride from the hotel!
Their top tips are:
The Gift: Visit Harbourne High Street for a selection of vintage and independent boutiques (11min taxi)
The Caffeine Fix: For a morning caffeine hit, try Urban Coffee Company (5min taxi, 14min walk)
The View: For one of the most unique views of the city, go to the top of Birmingham Library (3min taxi, 7min walk)
The Stroll: Take the Old Canal Walk from the Mailbox to Brindley Place and on past the NIA. Follow the canal until you emerge at Snow Hill (4min taxi, 11min walk)
The Food and Drink: Sample some of the best curries in Birmingham at the award winning Pushkar (Less than 1min walk)
