Things to do in Birmingham / Life with Lauren

A couple of weeks ago, me and my boyfriend took a trip to Birmingham to discover all the amazing things you can do whilst you’re out there. I was a little sceptical at first but we had such a great time and managed to fit so much in!

If you’re thinking about visiting Birmingham then I’d highly recommend booking a hotel and staying for a short weekend, as there’s so much to do while you’re out there so it’s a good idea to spread it out over the weekend. There are lots of hotels in Birmingham so you won’t struggle to find one that’s suitable for you! 

Me and my boyfriend had already booked a few of the things we had planned to make it a lot easier for us when we arrived. The first thing we did was go to the Ten Pin Bowling Alley in Star City. It was so affordable and is a great place to go if you love Bowling. In Star City, there is also the Adventure Mini Golf and a selection of different places to eat such as Nando’s, Pizza Hut and Harvester. 

Now, you can’t go to Birmingham without visiting the Bull Ring. This is a huge shopping centre in the centre of Birmingham. It has a good range of shops such as Selfridges, Disney and every other shop you could possibly think of. It’s right next to the train station so if you’re thinking about going by train then it’s a perfect opportunity for you to visit the Bull Ring! 

So, I’d highly recommend you visit Birmingham if you’re looking for an affordable but entertaining weekend away. There’s lots to do while you’re out there but it won’t break the bank which is always a plus! 

Let me know if you’ve ever visited Birmingham and what places you’d recommend?

  1. Ah Birmingham is my closest city so I love it! Star City is great, as is the Bullring but there is so much more to explore like the sea life centre, the birmingham museum, cadbury world... It really is a great toursit destination and often overlooked I think!

  2. Thinking of consistently foreclosures in florida on the agenda limited if it is bill-paying time? Will them appear to be any take-home pay shrinks plus every single payment evolves astronomically?
