Birmingham is England's second city, and is a European centre for retail, commerce and culture. It offers entertainment for all tastes, including leading theatres, music venues, art galleries and museums. It is also home to one of Europe’s largest city centre shopping malls, Bullring, which has over 160 shops including Selfridges, Abercrombie and Fitch, Apple and Top Shop.
The city's newest cultural attraction, opened in September 2013, is the state-of-the-art Library of Birmingham, one of the largest and most modern libraries in the world.
It’s a truly cosmopolitan city whose residents come from many diverse countries and cultural backgrounds. This is reflected in its restaurants, shops and cultural activities. Wherever you are from, you should have no problem finding food from your home country in the city’s restaurants, its Asian or European supermarkets or its large, fruit, vegetable, fish and meat markets.
