Castle

Where you can immerse yourself in a thousand years of jaw-dropping history – come rain or shine.Where ancient myths and spell-binding tales set your imagination alight, and your hair on end. Where princesses are pampered and maidens are wooed, as winners become true heroes and losers are confined to dark, dank dungeons to be forgotten for eternity. It could only be Warwick Castle.”

Music Venue
“Hosting some of the biggest stars and events from across the globe. The Birmingham Arena showcases some of the best entertainment shows, gaming events, and sporting contests. Located just 15minutes walk from Birmingham's Grand Central Station, visitors travelling to an event at the Arena, will not be disappointed. The arena is surrounded by local bars, restaurants and canals. Being a stones throw away from Brindley Place, one of our personal favourites in the area. ”
