City of a Thousand Trades
Britain's second-largest city, Birmingham was known as the City of a Thousand Trades and the Workshop of the World in the Victorian era. Today, Brum, as the locals call it, enjoys a 21st-century resurgence as a great shopping and cultural destination. The majority of the city center is now designed for pedestrians, with the historic canals cleaned up to create attractive walkways, which provide easy foot access to most tourist attractions. Renowned for its vibrant nightlife and arguably the best shopping experience outside of London, this modern, forward-looking city manages to retain much of its industrial heritage. For those looking to escape the bustle of the city, the countryside is surprisingly close. Plan your visit to Birmingham and other destinations in United Kingdom using our United Kingdom trip itinerary planning website.
