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.

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.
