Unique Gifts and Things To Do in BirminghamBirmingham’s flair for creativity and entrepreneurialism can be traced back to the Industrial Revolution – rather than developing factories of mass-production, the city dedicated itself to an assortment of specialist trades, self-owned workshops, and invention…this spirit can still be found throughout the city, today. Long-known for its colourful music-scene Birmingham is the birthplace of many influential bands including Electric Light Orchestra, UB40, and Led Zeppelin, as well as more recent indie artists and performers, and with a whole host of live music clubs, underground venues, and large arenas to choose from, you are never far from a fantastic night out. If you are feeling inspired by a great song, you might even like to head to a local recording studio to lay down a track of your own.
Being a University city, Birmingham is home to many young people and as such, the surrounding area has a range of activity experiences to suit their constant desire for entertainment. So, whether you are heading to the Wheels Park for a stunt driving experience or a spot of off-road karting, are visiting nearby Tamworth for some water sports, or Sutton Coldfield for an exhilarating game of paintball, there is an adventure day suitable for everyone.
If you are more into your history and culture then Birmingham’s Jewellery Quarter is a “must” on the list of things to do. Affectionately known as “Birmingham’s Gem”, this area of unique character boasts 250 years of metal-working history and is still home to over 500 jewellery businesses. But if your budget doesn’t quite stretch to the price of a diamond, then perhaps you’d rather treat a friend or loved one to a spa day or pamper package at one of Birmingham’s premium venues.
Whatever or whoever you are looking for, with a host of exciting experience days available in the city centre and the surrounding towns and countryside, you’ll be spoilt for choice with activity gifts and days out in Birmingham.
