Soho House
#8 of 285 things to do in Birmingham
Tip; If you are travelling by public transport to Soho House from Birmingham city centre, take the tram/metro (direction of Priestfield/Wolverhampton) from Grand Central Shopping Centre.
Soho House should be a stop on any visitor's trip to the Midlands - given the historic importance of its owner, Matthew Boulton and its place in the Industrial Revolution and Enlightenment of the eighteenth century.

Town Hall Birmingham
#30 of 285 things to do in Birmingham
We visited the superb Town Hall again last night to see An Evening with Dan Snow which was excellent informative and hugely entertaining.
The seats are comfortable with good legroom and you get a great view of the stage from any seat, thanks in part to it being a smaller venue than its more glamorous sibling, The Symphony Hall.

International Convention Centre (ICC) Birmingham

Have been invited to a wedding here, and a number of meetings - amazing venue to visit, and attended a concert once - was amazing - Bham is a great place to live, work and visit!
Symphony Hall is a great venue - fabulous design internally that evokes Art Deco or the concert halls/cinemas of the 20's and 30's but with all mod cons too!

Very helpful young lady on the desk and a fantastic production last night of "Mary queen of Scots got her head chopped off " great bar offering coffee and ice cream as well
I am used to going to the Hippodrome, which is more impressive inside, but the downside is the seats at the back of the circle are so far away from the stage.
