Of­ten recog­nised as the grav­i­ta­tional cen­tre of the civil rights move­ment, Birm­ing­ham of­fers a unique ex­pe­ri­ence to the visi­tor who wants to sam­ple the his­tor­i­cal 'South', but en­joy the ameni­ties of a modern city.

Here you can spend the day in our Civil Rights Dis­trict, ex­plor­ing lo­ca­tions you’ve only read about, then en­joy phe­nom­e­nal farm-to­fork fare at any num­ber of top restau­rants. Af­ter din­ner, spend your evening in one of the last re­main­ing true juke joints in the world – Gip’s Place. You’ll find Birm­ing­ham mixes old and new to cre­ate a cock­tail with a flavour all its own.

FEED YOUR SOUL

Birm­ing­ham’s got soul. You’ll find it at the 16th Street Bap­tist Church or Kelly In­gram Park. You’ll find it in quaint, out-of-the-way artsy shops, bustling bou­tiques, and our ex­pan­sive green spa­ces.

You’ll find Birm­ing­ham’s soul at the top of the statue of Vul­can over­look­ing the city, and you’ll find it in the mu­sic venues that of­fer ev­ery­thing from emerg­ing new mu­sic to the blues.

FEED YOUR PALATE

Birm­ing­ham has re­ceived tremen­dous press as a foodie city, and rightly so. Here, you’ll dis­cover ex­cep­tional chef-owned restau­rants fea­tur­ing lo­cally farmed fare and de­li­cious seafood brought up fresh from the Gulf of Mex­ico daily.

And to top it off, Birm­ing­ham’s brew­eries tap phe­nom­e­nal craft brews, while the mixol­o­gists at the lo­cal bars sport hand­crafted cock­tails de­signed with the dis­cern­ing im­biber in mind. If food and drink are what you hunger for, you’ll find no bet­ter than in Birm­ing­ham.

FEED YOUR BODY

From hik­ing trails to pris­tine rivers and ex­cel­lent golf cour­ses, Birm­ing­ham of­fers di­verse ad­ven­tures aplenty.

Vis­i­tors can dis­cover hun­dreds of miles of walk­ing trails and more than 140,000 yards of pub­lic golf within a cab ride of where you’re stay­ing.

Wan­der along the Ca­haba River, which boasts more bio­di­ver­sity than all of Eng­land’s wa­ters com­bined. Or ex­plore parks that cel­e­brate Birm­ing­ham’s in­dus­trial past and peer into fas­ci­nat­ing cen­tury-old, aban­doned iron-ore mines.

If golf is your bag, you’ll find that our rolling to­pog­ra­phy and lush flora make for stun­ning golf cour­ses that wow you with their nat­u­ral beauty and chal­lenge you to make your shots.

In sum, Birm­ing­ham is that gra­cious south­ern Amer­i­can city that shares its his­tory with panache, its food and drink gen­er­ously and hos­pitably, and its many var­ied ad­ven­tures with de­light.
