AndSoWeWent // Birmingham Adventures

We all know that the fair city (My fair city) of Birmingham has more canals than Venice, over 8000 acres of green and open space and most importantly we are the home of Heavy Metal.                         
So now you have succesfully searched (and booked) for Hotels in Birmingham (based purely on those 3 facts), here are some places that you should most definitely go and explore. I Recently spent the day as a tourist in my own city to see what I had been missing out on.

We started the day in the city centre and headed to Wayland’s Yard for some most excellent breakfast choices of Pancetta hash cakes and poached egg perfection while we decided a plan of action.

Decision made we jumped on the tram (right outside) and headed to the Jewellery Quarter just a few stops away.

We spent some time walking around St. Pauls square and then headed up to the Royal Birmingham Society of Artists. The space is run by artists for artists and there is always something there to catch your eye,.We saw the Photogenic Prize Exhibition 2019 showcasing established and upcoming photographers from the Midlands and further afield.

If you feel more like taking in some culture then head to IKON in Brindley place or BMAG in Chamberlin Square (just look for the Floozie and you know you’re in the right spot). But for today we decided to talk a walk down the canals, into Digbeth the beating heart (and one of my favourite parts) of the city.

Of course, we headed to the famous Digbeth Dining Club; home to some of the finest vendors of eats in the UK we were spoilt for choice as we refuelled for the final leg of the day.

With our bellies full we headed to the last stop on today's tour. We rang the bell at 18/81. Hidden somewhere on Thorpe Street, this is one of my favourite places to hang out. If you want amazing cocktails, in a relaxed and welcoming place then you need to have these guys on the list.

I am biased, but our city is filled with wonderful things to explore and see. With an ever-growing number of Independents, come and check out something different. I promise you won’t be disappointed.

The spending money for our adventure was gifted by, but all views and opinions as always are my own.
