Birmingham is the home to Ozzy Osborn, J.R.R. Tolkien, and Cadbury chocolate. It is also the second largest city in England located in the west midlands county with a history of being an industrial hot-spot place for factory workers. Its key to popularity was its boom in trade industry but now the city is changing into a more vibrant cultural centre.

Cadbury Factory: Succumb to your sweet tooth at the chocolate factory and you’re on your way to enjoying everything that Birmingham holidays have to offer. Chocolate-lovers should make a stop at the Cadbury Factory to see the stages of chocolate production and the history of chocolate.

Arts and music: Apart from shopping and development, Birmingham has a happening art scene. Head to the city centre and catch a show at the Symphony Hall or a ballet at the Birmingham Hippodrome. For something more edgy, there are dozens of concert venues down town to keep any visitor busy.
