Cheap Flight To Birmingham
England's second largest city is a melting pot of different cultures, a magnet for major international exhibitions, a sporting hub and full of historical attractions, places to shop and entertainment options. If you are looking for a short break destination with excellent connections by plane to most major European cities, Birmingham fits the bill.
The city famously developed into one of the world's greatest manufacturing centres in the 18th and 19th centuries, with local engineers pioneering globally important innovations like the steam engine and blast furnaces. Since then, it has at times been eclipsed by rivals like Manchester or Liverpool, but has enjoyed a renaissance in the last 20 years thanks to major projects like the Bullring redevelopment, which has created a cutting edge shopping centre in the heart of town that is one of the finest places to shop in the country. Sport is also on the agenda in the city thanks to football teams like Aston Villa and West Bromwich Albion, as well as Edgbaston Cricket Ground and the annual Sports Show at the National Exhibition Centre.
Food is another local obsession, and in Birmingham that usually means one thing: curry. If you love Indian food, you'll adore the restaurants in Hall Green and Sparkbrook. Then there's Cadbury's, a global chocolate giant that has its roots in the suburb of Bournville. A trip to Cadbury World will be hard to resist for confectionery fans. Meanwhile, a visit to the Birmingham Museum and Art Gallery will delight art lovers, with its stunning collection of Pre-Raphaelite paintings and fascinating medieval coin collections. The centre of the West Midlands is more than just a regional capital. It's the kind of destination that will surprise, delight and enthuse visitors, so check out your options and book a flight to Birmingham* today. You won't regret it.
