B&B and 3 days trip

by LEAG

Hello, I'll travel to Birmigham in may. Do you know a B&B in the center of the town ?
What is interesting to visit ?
Thank Gaël

RE: B&B and 3 days trip

Not sure about accomodation because we just go for the day but the greatest choclate in the world as its home in Birmingham - Cadburys. There is a very good visitor attraction at Bourneville in the south of the city and its well worth a visit - it is not as many people think just for children.
Have a look at http://www.cadburyworld.co.uk/en/cworld
If you like to see canal boats and see how Birmingham is the centre of the UKs canal network go to the Gas Street basin. This is a fascinating place to watch the boats come and go and there is a canal bus that you can ride on around the city.

The Black Country Living Museum is in Dudley (almost part of Birmingham), easy to get to and worth a visit. I've just made a page on it (under Dudley)if you want to see photos etc. www.bclm.co.uk

Hi
Depending on where you wish to stay....there are several B&B's scattered over Birmingham.
Depending on what your budget is, I'll be able to tell you where they are how and how you can get to them by taxi or by public transport....also depends if you wish to be near the city centre or outside, what is the reason for your visit etc...all these factors have to be taken into account...

B&B and 3 days trip

Thank for your answer.

RE: RE: B&B and 3 days trip

in that case I would suggest you try two locations
1. Hagley road, Edgbaston Quality hotel or the Apollo hotel.
2. Bristol Road near to the university there are several B&B's

all reasonably priced and no more than 5 mins bus ride to the city centre....

any more advice contact me on chavez121@hotmail.co.uk

Travel Tips for Birmingham

In the city center, where all...

by barcodex

In the city center, where all that skyscrapers filled with offices reside, you can see a beautiful picture of clerks who come outside during the lunch time having their British-style sandwiches on the grass just in front of the buildings. The point of this cultiral tip that English people do not use a lunchtime as an opprotunity to stuff their stomachs completely with the food, what is a tradition in other countries like Russia or Germany.

The Labour in Vain - PC incorrect

by sourbugger

Just by Stourbridge Junction station (if you happen to be passing that way) on Redhill Avenue lies two pubs.

My apologies to VT member TimLloydlangston who has written a very similar tip - but he pointed the places out to me and may have even bought a round or two in the place.

The public house the 'Labour in vain' used to be a hotel, and is not much to write home about. Except that is for the preserved stained glass window on the side of the boozer that depicts (in a very non-politically correct way) two whote women trying to scrub a black man to turn him white - obviously a Labour in vain. It an also lead to the rather obvious jokes about the local womenfolk being a bunch of scrubbers.

The Seven Stars, just slightly closer to the station has a good reputation as a freindly pub with good food, reasonable beer and interesting decor.

Worth a little detour if you happen to be passing through Stourbridge Junction station.

Old Skool Dance Music

by J_P_B about Flashback

Perhaps the original Old Skool night in Britain, Flashback has been going for years now and Jimmy and Mo do a fine job with it. If you want a bit of a flavour of what the old rave scene was like then this is your best bet. They have a plethora of rooms including an Old Skool room (of course), Hardcore Techno room, Drum and Bass and a guest sound system room that plays anything from House to ambient - I played at one in November '02 and a mighty fine night it was too - not that I'm biased or anything! None as such, but if you bring a fluorescent jacket, white gloves and a glow stick, you'll fit in just fine!

Fly into Birmingham...

by CarolynShort

Fly into Birmingham International (BHX) and frequent train services take you directly into the city centre (Birmingham New Street Station). If flying into London, there's a regular train from Euston Station to New Street....or coach from Victoria is cheaper, but slower. By car, Birmingham centre is just off the M6 (Junction 6)

Posh pub grub

by bluedook about White Swan

The White Swan or "the Dirty Duck" as it is locally known used to be a good pub but has now converted into a restaurant. it serves salads steaks seafood pizzas and pasta it is fairly light and spacious. the wine list is good and the staff were friendly and helpful. There is a small drinks area and large car park. The Funghi pizza was great. Nice bread and oil/ vinegar to start
