If a trip to England makes you think of Charles Dickens or Jane Austen and your trip to Birmingham in particular piques your curiosity about literature, good plane reading is Daniel Pool’s “What Jane Austen Ate and Charles Dickens Knew: From Fox Hunting to Whist – The Facts of Daily Life in Nineteenth-Century England”.
If a travel guide is more your interest, consider the Eyewitness Guide to Great Britain. This guide, which carries a healthy dose of useful information about Birmingham travel, is an off-beat travel guide which provides you drawings, pictures and sketches of the area you want to travel to, in this case Birmingham. Though it will provide you with basic information every traveler needs to have about transportation, hotels and the like, this book is best for someone who wants a little cream with their basic coffee and wants a more rounded picture of the area.
Finally, for a traditional and classic travel guide, pick up a copy of “Frommer’s England”. The Frommer’s guides are bestsellers for a reason and the England edition is no exception. If you want opinionated, but unbiased, review of attractions and hotels, with suggestions on what to see and what you can avoid, this is the travel book for you.
