Birmingham is an extraordinary base to explore from, as direct local transport links can take you not only throughout the city, but also further afield.
You can visit Europe's largest library in the city's busiest building! It lends over 8 million books each year, with computer access and a cafe serving an array of delicious treats.
The city also calls all chocolate lovers! Discover a world of chocolate delights at Cadbury World, a place for the whole family to enjoy. You can add your favourite treat to a scrumptious pot of warm liquid Cadbury Dairy Milk and even have the opportunity to create your very own chocolate concoction.
Fancy yourself as a bit of a TV News Presenter? Visit BBC Birmingham at The Mailbox, where you can read and record your very own news item or weather forecast with your friends and family.
If you are willing to travel a little further afield, visit the wonderful world class family attraction of Black Country open-air museum. Brought to life by costumed characters, it consists of an array of original shops, houses, workshops, school and traditional fairground.
