From Harvey Nichols to Selfridges, vibrant markets, revitalised malls, and the world-famous Jewellery Quarter, there is something for everyone. Truly cosmopolitan, Birmingham is a foodie’s dream! Boasting a diverse range of great eateries, coffee houses, cafe bars and restaurants, you can explore global cuisine without leaving the city! In addition to fantastic nightlife, a buzzing arts scene, music and cultural festivals, camping in Birmingham is the perfect choice whether you are looking for a family holiday, romantic weekend, activity break or fun days out.
Birmingham was also the home of author J.R.R. Tolkien who lived in King’s Heath, just a few miles from the city centre. Tolkien was motivated by the local area and went on to write some of the most popular and best known books in the world including The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings. Fans of Tolkien can visit local sites that inspired his work including Sarehole Mill, the Shire Country Park, Perrott’s Folly and Edgbaston Waterworks Tower (said to be the inspiration for the Two Towers).
