Birmingham Travel Guide

City Centre

The city is now majorly pedestrianised and everything is easy to reach walking. Within the city centre you can find a wide range of things to do and see such as The Birmingham Art Gallery that features art works works by Rodin, some major Pre-Raphaelites and a breathtaking selection of Japanese armour. The glorious Town Hall and Council House face outwards to Victoria Square where the statue fondly known by all Brummies as "the Floozie in the Jacuzzi" takes centre stage on the steps that lead down to New Street. Broad Street, with its hotels, pubs, clubs and restaurants, leads to the canals - Birmingham has more canals than Venice as any local will only too readily point out. Along with numerous theatres, the International Convention Centre and Symphony Hall can be found. Also, there are two cathedrals, both of which are beautiful, although St Philip's is probably the easiest to find.
