Birmingham is one of the most spirited cities in the heart of England and with its numerous shopping opportunities like Brindleyplace, Ikon Gallery and Bullring Shopping Centre it is England’s second best shopping place right behind London West Est. If you like to buy an extraordinary souvenir, you should visit Jewellery Quarter – it’s the biggest one in whole Europe!
But you can also experience culture in Birmingham. You can admire various paintings of famous artists like Van Gough, Rodin, Picasso or Monet at the Barber Institute of Fine Arts. The Birmingham Thinktank is also worth visiting. Here you can take a look at the oldest fully functional steam engine, built from James Watt! Those, who are travelling with children, should plan to visit the National Sealife Centre, too.
As you can see, there are a lot of good reasons to start your England holidays in the country’s second biggest town and to explore the West Midlands with your McRent rental motorhome afterwards.
