West Midlands

Known to many as The Black Country, and home to England’s second city, Birmingham and the surrounding region has so much to offer.

It would be fair to say it has been one of the UK’s hidden gems until recently, when, after a push to raise its profile, the city drew in an estimated 2.3 million visitors in 2018. The regenerated Canalside area now boasts a host of fabulous restaurants as well as other key attractions such as the Sea Life Centre and Symphony Hall.

In addition to the amenities of this vibrant and bustling city, there are also two botanical gardens, nature reserves and country parks as well as the glorious Malvern Hills and Wye Valley River – a designated area of outstanding natural beauty – to be explored. And of course, there’s also a plethora of wonderful restaurants with event and private dining options to be enjoyed throughout this bountiful region.
