Whenever the United Kingdom is mentioned, images that tend to flash in peoples’ minds are often of the Royal family, Buckingham Palace, Big Ben, the Houses of Parliament – all iconic imagery of the UK’s capital city, London.
It’s rare that people living outside the UK will have even heard of Birmingham. But Birmingham happens to be a colourful and vibrant city, with culture and diversity rich enough to rival London’s.
So here’s a few interesting facts about Birmingham:
It’s the second most largest and populous city in the United Kingdom (the first being London) with over three and a half million people. So obviously it can’t be too bad here!
It’s one of the UK’s top three gay destinations.
