About Birmingham
 - Birmingham is the largest of England's core cities, and is often considered to be the second city of the United Kingdom. The city's reputation was forged as a powerhouse of the Industrial Revolution in Britain, a fact which led to Birmingham being known as "the workshop of the world" or the "city of a thousand trades".

Shopping - Birmingham’s an absolute shopper’s paradise. Whether you seek head-turning chic, or eye-catching value, it’s all waiting in the bold new shopping capital of Europe. From the welcoming mix of new or revitalised malls, the vibrant markets with ‘must-have’ bargains galore, or the world-famous Jewellery Quarter where hand-made craftsmanship waits at unbelievable prices - let’s shop!

Things to do, Days Out and Tourist Information - Birmingham is internationally recognised as a leader in leisure, entertainment, business, shopping, industry and sport. The city centre is a fusion of attractive squares, modern shopping arcades, diverse pubs, clubs and restaurants and fine museums, theatres and art galleries – truly a World City.
