Further from my previous posting mentioning the city, if you have never been to Birmingham I very much recommend the place. It has some interesting history, a lovely museum and gallery, and it is always worth visiting Symphony Hall. There are also some lovely coffee houses and resturants and in the past fifteen years or so, the city has had a considerable facelift for the better. The archetecture of the University is superb and at this time of year they have a lovely German themed Christmas market in Chamberlain Square, so if you will be in the area in the coming weeks, take a look!
Right, that's my travellog piece done! ;) Seriously though, take a look!
