day. Here at Staying Cool we appreciate the joy of a
perfect cup of tea. When you check in with us you'll find a range

We're proud supporters of Orchestra of the Swan. If you become a Friend of theirs you'll be able to buy tickets for a rather special event at Staying Cool at the Rotunda in May and enjoy many other benefits.

Monarch's flights between Birmingham and Barcelona go daily from May. Potential for a very cool Staying Cool mini-tour!
Start out at the Rotunda, hop on a train (it takes
as little as nine minutes to go from very nearby New
Street Station to Birmingham International) and then stay
with us at 39
Steps in Barcelona. Unbeatable for style.
