Have a festive shopping spree.

Birmingham is known for being one of the best places to do some shopping with Bullring and Grand Central together being the UK’s largest city-based shopping centre. It’s a sight within itself with the Selfridges Building of the Bullring having a futuristic bubble-like appearance. Inside this shopping centre, you’ll have dozens of options to get some well-needed retail therapy. Get some Christmas presents sorted or treat yourself to an early gift – the choice is yours!

All of that browsing and spending is bound to be tiresome work, so be sure to chill out at one of Birmingham’s many fantastic restaurants.
