Why Stay nearby ?
The New Street rail station, named after the city’s most famous street, was built in the heart of Birmingham in the mid-nineteenth century. In this period the town had seen major changes due to the Industrial Revolution. Since then, the building was refurbished several times but also severely damaged during World War II.
However, no major renovations were done since the 1960s, so it was about time for the terminal to be modernized. The same is true for the immediate surroundings: the core was built in the heydays of the Industrial Revolution and is still shining today. You can admire it directly upon arrival.
If you’re not distracted by the Grand Central shopping centre, just go outside and you’ll find yourself right in the city centre: museums, Town Hall, the old narrow streets and Gay Village, home of the famous Pride, are just minutes’ walk apart.
Gay Village is obviously a colourful neighbourhood with many bars, restaurants and of course clubs. It offers a wide range of accommodation options, from affordable hotels to apartments to rent for one night or weekend and cheap b&b’s. Even the less expensive rooms can be modern and come with good service.
As the area is not the city centre, yet still within walking distance of the hotspots, most budget travellers should be able to find themselves a shelter here. Broad Street hotels can also easily be reached.
Hotel and rooms for one night, weekend…
The centre itself does not have a lot of bed and breakfast possibilities but offers many well priced and inexpensive hotels instead. Most attractions in this part of town are within walking distance of each other. If you don’t want to waste your money on city centre hotels, it is perfectly fine to look for cheap b&b’s outside of the centre.
When staying overnight outside the town you can travel to the tourist hotspots using the extensive bus network or by bike. Bikes are also a good way to enjoy the canals, a quiet place during rush hour. If the weather is good, you might want to explore the wider area by taking a tour on one of the many cycling routes. Several websites will help you planning your journey and routes, and Google maps can also come to the rescue.
A golden tip is to visit the Villa Park stadium, where some Rugby World Cup matches were hosted as well. Once back in the centre, you’ll find out that New Street is good for shopping too: fashion, food and jewellery are awaiting you in the arcades. Like it? get yourself a bed and breakfast nearby, it saves you time and perhaps even money!
