Birmingham is the capital of the Midlands, and the name of that region should give you a good indication of just how accessible it is. Practically everywhere in the United Kingdom is a train or bus away from Brum, with frequent connections to major centres like London, Manchester, Edinburgh and others. The airport continues the trend, with flights to all sorts of international destinations, both long and short haul. Birmingham’s public transport is exceptionally simple and the miles of canals are tailor-made for summertime bike rides and aimless strolling. Whether you are coming or going, Birmingham makes it easy for all.
