Welcome to Birmingham
Birmingham - the UK's second city and home to the ICC
Did you know that....?
- The City of Birmingham is the UK’s ‘Second City’, both in size and influence
- Recent transformation and regeneration means it is now the UK’s most popular conference destination outside of the Capital
- The region is steeped in local history, from being a stone's throw from Stratford-upon-Avon for Shakespeare lovers, to Warwick and Kenilworth Castles, for those who enjoy exploring dungeons and old battlements.
- For ‘culture vultures’, there are exceptional art galleries, museums, libraries and the best concert hall in the country.
- For ‘foodies’, there are over 200 restaurants, four of which are Michelin-starred – more than any other English city outside of London.
- For ‘shopaholics’, there are over 1,000 stores, from high-end fashion to independent chic.
However, for those who prefer relaxing in pubs and wine bars, then you really should explore the quaint establishments that have emerged along the canal-side, just outside the ICC. What better way to unwind after a long day conferencing?!
