Birmingham is approximately 100 miles from central London and is today considered one of the UK’s major cities. Archaeological evidence suggests that people have lived in and around the area since around 8,000 BCE.

Birmingham as a settlement, however, didn’t exist until the Anglo-Saxon era. It went on to become a market town in the medieval period before undergoing extensive development during the 18th century. From the summer of 1940 to the spring of 1943, it suffered significant damage caused by the German Luftwaffe, later known as the Birmingham Blitz.

The city has since recovered and continues to inspire tourists from far and wide. Today, popular attractions include Birmingham Museum & Art Gallery, The National Sea Life Centre and the Botanical Gardens. Whatever you choose to do with your day, be sure to stop at an Afternoon Tea Birmingham venue for lunch.
