Curious About Birmingham
Have fun discovering Birmingham with two self-guided, heritage walks with an optional treasure hunt.
Birmingham grew rapidly as a result of the industrial revolution, and there's still a lot of heavy industry in the city - but at its heart are some fabulous treasures to find. There's a charming 18th century cathedral, a resplendent 19th century Council House overlooking the vibrant Victoria Square, a Hall of Memory, an international convention centre, a vital jewellery quarter, and a Georgian Square named after the lofty church in its leafy middle. The list goes on, but let's finish by mentioning the canals, over 100 miles of them, restored and bustling with boats, people walking alongside, and people sitting and watching from the many restaurants and bars - it really is a city to explore and enjoy.
