Introduction

Birmingham is also called England's second city, after London, but there is a heavy argument with Manchester about this title. The city was damaged severely during WWII. In the fifties and sixties of the last century many buildings were already restored, but in the nineties the municipality decided to renovate the center. Nowadays, Birmingham is an attractive city, with new squares, such as Centenary Square and Millennium Place, the beautifully restored shopping mall Bull Ring and the canals that have been restored to their former glory and where you will find many restaurants and cafes.

Population

Birmingham has 1 million inhabitants, but the urban area and the surroundings are home to approximately 2.5 million people.

Location

The city lies in the heart of the West Midlands, England´s central region. This also used to be the heart of the Black Country, named after the factories with their smoking chimneys. These have disappeared for the most part. South and West of the city, there are ridges: Lickey Hills and Clent Hills. 315 meters high Walton Hill is the highest point in the vicinity of Birmingham.

Economy

Previously, Birmingham was a center of heavy industry and weapons. It produced steam engines, parts for ships, train carriages, cannons, guns and pistols. These industries have nearly disappeared, but Birmingham still has some industrial production (mainly beer and chocolate - it is the base of the chocolate giant Cadbury’s). Also, two of the world's biggest banks were founded in Birmingham: Lloyds Bank and Midland Bank (nowadays HSBC). The city's three universities don't just supply much employment, but are also the source for many technology companies. Furthermore, Birmingham is an important center of exhibitions and congresses, with an International Convention Centre and the National Exhibition Centre.

Airports

Birmingham Airport is situated thirteen kilometers east of the city center. The airport is easily accessible by rental car: it is on highway A45. From Birmingham first take the highway A6 (or toll road M6), then take exit M42. The way to the airport is clearly indicated on road signs.

Public transport

Birmingham has good public transport facilities. There is no central bus station: most lines depart from different locations in the city center to the suburbs. Furthermore, there are two circle lines (8-Inner Circle and 11-Outer Circle). There is also a tram line from Snow Hill Station to Wolverhampton, via the Jewellery Quarter. There are water buses on Birmingham's canals. Due to their speed they aren't very popular with the locals, but for visitors it is a fun way to explore the city.

Traffic and Parking

Birmingham's center is partly accessible for pedestrians. Streets that allow motorized traffic are often one way. This can make it difficult for you to find your way around. Also, finding a parking space for your rental car can prove to be difficult. At tourist kiosks, you can get a map with all the parking facilities in and around the center.

Hotels

Birmingham has a wide range of accommodations. You will find cheap youth hostels and bed & breakfasts, good mid range hotels and luxury hotels of international chains. Because there are many conventions and exhibitions in Birmingham, we recommend you to book your hotel well in advance.
