In Birmingham for 1-2 days  (6 Answers)

I am in Birmingham for almost 2 days. I am an adult male and would love to get ideas of the best things to see in that short time? I prefer not going to regular museums, churches etc. Thought maybe different sights, views, nature etc. I definitely would go to Bournville to Cadbury World. Can anyone give me suggestions of what cannot be missed when in around Birmingham area?
Thank you,
Hessel

Looking for Hotel weekend 4th/5th July  (3 Answers)

Hi - my son and his friend are going to the Wireless festival in Perry Park from 4th July to 6th July. He doesn't want to take a car so is looking for a reasonably prices hotel ( £50 per night) that he can get to by public transport from Perry Park. So transport needs to be running at say 11.30pm on the Friday and Saturday Night.

Nothing decent available in the centre of Birmingham but still availability in Edgbaston (Hagley Road).

Does anyone know if buses run fairly late along the Hagley Road? if so, are they safe?

Thanks for any help?

Parking costs  (22 Answers)

Even had a confirmation booking email for £0.00 which includes Booking Ref and dates timings etc. Obviously there is some sort of balls up on their booking system!!! So will they have to honour my booking or will they f... me off if I rock up at the airport expecting free parking.

Birmingham Airport  (4 Answers)

My Korean inlaws are arriving at Birmingham Airport late on Friday 2 August. They booked into the Etap Airport Hotel (soon to be IBIS). It looks to be a short walk from the arrivals hall, but a walk that could be complicated in the dark, to jet lagged travellers with limited English. I've looked at Google maps and Bing, but I've found it difficult to work out the exact route. has anyone done this walk? many thanks, GIChuck

Help finding good Birmingham Hotel  (5 Answers)

So, I'm going to be travelling to Birmingham on business in the next couple of weeks, but I have to find my own accommodations. I'd like to find a hotel that's reasonably cheap and close by the airport. I found one site, ./, that lists hotels right by the airport, but of course hotels are always different. Does anybody have any personal experience with the hotels on that site? They seem to be mostly chains; are they good representations of the chains they are named after?

Also, how bad does traffic tend to be in Birmingham? I don't even really know much about the city. Should I look into renting a car or am I better off with public transport?
