I have to be honest that when I visited Birmingham for the first time in November for a weekend shopping trip, I did not even know that the city had a cathedral. It was only after seeing it marked on a city centre map and by spotting the pedestrian direction signs that I decided to go and have a look. Am I glad I did - this place is a gem. The stained glass windows in this cathedral are amazing. The staff on duty were very welcoming and informative but without being obtrusive. I visited on a Saturday afternoon and was lucky enough to visit whilst choir practice was taken place. This created a wonderful atmosphere - the music and singing was lovely. Even to someone who is not particularly religious it felt very spiritual and calming.
I have visited many cathedrals in the UK but I have to say that this one left a lasting impression on me - I will definitely visit again next time I'm in Birmingham and would definitely recommend as not to be missed.
