Birmingham is Britain's 2nd city. It was at the heart of the UK's industrial revolution, and its wealth was built upon the multitude of trades that were spawned. This lead to a massive canal network, with more miles of canals than Venice (though they're very different types of canal).

Much Birmingham's centre was destroyed during the Second World War, and the replacement buildings added little to the city. Indeed a standing joke among people is Spaghetti Junction - a mass of intersecting motorways and local roads that can send a careless driver off in completely the opposite direction to that which he intended.

However, since the 1990s, Birmingham has been undergoing a radical change and many of the post war buildings have been replaced. The majority of Birmingham is now pedestrianized, and the canals cleaned up to make for attractive walkways. To be fair, Birmingham could not be described as a city full of tourist attractions. The near-by locations of Shropshire, Warwick, and Stratford-Upon-Avon provide more of the stereotypical images of England. However, there is an extremely lively night life, and the shopping is now the best outside of London.
