Birmingham is a diverse and exciting melting pot and the largest city within a 40 minute drive from Leamington Spa.

As well as a rich retail offering in the city centre and sophisticated Brindleyplace, Birmingham provides glamorous restaurants and bars, or a creative and cool Eastside, the artistic hub of the city.

Explore the world-famous Balti Triangle – home to spectacular Asian fashion and mouth-watering curries; Colmore Business District – the economic heartland of Birmingham or the historic Jewellery Quarter, where over 40% of British jewellery is created.

Next door to each other, the Gay Village and Theatreland compete in the glamour, drama and entertainment stakes, and both know how to show a visitor a great time! They’re only a stone’s throw from Chinatown too, with its wealth of great places to eat and vibrant clubbing scene.

Just ten minutes away by train you’ll find Birmingham Airport and the NEC, home to some of the UK’s most spectacular events.

And when the sun goes down, head to Broad Street to enjoy clubs and bars galore.
