About Birmingham:

Britain’s second largest city has replaced the urban grittiness of its 19th century industrial past for a more refined existence today. The city’s Symphony Hall and Public Library are simply world class. The iconic Bullring shopping centre has become a central focus for the modern Birmingham and the city boasts plenty of public spaces and parks. Birmingham is also crisscrossed with delightful canals -  the locals like to point out - more than exist in Venice.
