What a lovely friendly city!

I don't know where to write a review of a city but if fellow travellers want advice about cities to visit then I can recommend Brum! I hadn't been there for years but have just come back and can't speak highly enough of the welcome and friendliness of this city. Everyone, without exception, from hotel staff to people on the street who noticed our accents and tourist giveaway(holding A-Z of streets) made a real effort to help us and engage in conversation. Bus drivers were great, taxi drivers gave their usual invaluable insight into city life and we loved it. Diolch Birmingham, I don't care if this is not the right place to post this but have a very Happy New Year all you Brummies (and adopted ones!) To overseas tourists, put this city on your itinerary!

As a nana walking around Birmingham city streets, and by the canal at night with my daughter and granddaughter, i felt safer than walking, around London at night .

As said before, you use common sense, as you should do in any city in the world.

We loved Birmingham, and looking forward for an excuse to return,

Have a great time,its a lovely City,

Regards Denise ;-)
