Birmingham: Choc-full of things to see and do
Irish News
September 12, 2009

Birmingham is England's second largest city but it doesn't seem to get too much time in the limelight. With a host of tourist attractions, award-winning restaurants, bustling nightlife and world's most famous chocolate factory, it deserves a lot more attention. Brian Campbell went along for a visit.

It is the second biggest city in Britain, it was known as "the workshop of the world" in its industrial heyday and it currently has a host of tourist attractions, but Birmingham is still something of a forgotten city to many. ...

The Museum of  Jewellery Quarter (on Vyse Street) was voted the third best free visitor attraction in Europe by TripAdvisor, after Rome's Pantheon and the National Gallery in London.
