Make the most of a Rugby World Cup trip to Birmingham and pack days with historic tours, stylish shopping and fun family attractions.
Birmingham’s city centre is bustling with shopping streets leading to regal Victorian town squares. To the west lie the fashionable boutiques and welcoming cafés of the elegant Jewellery Quarter, while just a short hop from the city’s centre is the famous Balti Triangle offering spicy Indian post-match feasts.
Those with a sweet tooth can indulge at Cadbury World, where you can trace the history of the first chocolate bar and take a Willy Wonka-style tour, whilst kids can come face-to-face with mesmerising oceanic creatures such as octopus, stingrays and jellyfish, and can even hold crabs and tickle starfish at the interactive National Sea Life Centre Birmingham.
Continue the adrenaline rush of high-octane rugby games with scary rides at Drayton Manor Theme Park and Alton Towers Resort, both in easy reach of Birmingham. Those after a more leisurely pace can chug alongside the river by steam train on the Severn Valley Railway. Or step back in time at the Black Country Living Museum where you can ride a tram through a recreated Victorian village.
