YOUR GUIDE TO BIRMINGHAM
Birmingham Capital Of Culture
If you like your city breaks with a big helping of culture, Birmingham is the perfect place for you.
The city’s events calendar is jam-packed, so you’re bound to find something fun happening– it could be anything from an outdoor arts or comedy festival to a celebration of whisky or literature.
Birmingham’s food scene is red hot – in more ways than one. The famous ‘Balti Triangle’ is home to some of Britain’s best spicy Indian curries, and you can sample even more fiery favourites at Lasan, named Best Local Restaurant on Gordon Ramsay’s F Word programme.
Birmingham has a temperate maritime climate, like much of the British Isles, with average maximum temperatures in summer (July) being around 21.3 °C (70.3 °F); and in winter (January) around 6.7 °C (44.1 °F). Birmingham is a snowy city relative to other large UK conurbations, due to its inland location and comparatively high elevation
