69 Best Birmingham Attractions Every Tourist Must See

Through history, Birmingham was long a hub for industry, taking a massive role in the Industrial Revolution in England. Now, it is the second biggest city in the country, an eclectic mixture of old and new with Victorian buildings sitting snugly between high-rises. It is also famous for its shopping, with the Bullring offering up plenty for tourists to get stuck into. In line with its industrial history, many tourists are drawn to the Cadbury’s factory here, but plenty also flock to Birmingham to experience the nightlife, the food and the up-and-coming hotels.
