Visit world-famous attractions
The Birmingham Museum & Art Gallery itself is an exceptional day out - with amazing collections of Pre-Raphaelite art, metalwork and ceramics (without the queues and tourist clusters of some other major city museums - ahem London). There's also a raft of niche museums the whole family will love - like the Sarehole Mill - a 250-year-old working watermill.
Eat at a Balti House
No Birmingham experience is complete without enjoying an authentic Balti curry - served in a traditional steel Balti dish. Visit the Balti Triangle - a cluster of balti houses along Ladypool Road, Stoney Lane and Stratford Road. Experience some other delicacies from the area's rich food heritage including groaty pudding, Shrewsbury cakes or traditional faggots (savoury duck meatballs).
Explore the canals
The world-famous Birmingham canal network doesn't just boast more miles than Venice - they are both stunningly beautiful and functional. Float along on a boat tour or use the gorgeous towpaths to explore the city centre. Don't forget a pitstop at a canalside bar like the Flapper or The Malthouse.
