What to see and do in Birmingham

You may not want to venture out - some guests get so hooked on the panoramic views -especially at night - that they don't leave their apartment! But if you do, here are some of the highlights.

Visit Britain's oldest working cinema, The Electric, and treat yourself to a ticket for an indie film (waiter service to your private sofa also available).

Shopaholics beware, your apartment is located within the Bullring. Zara is our ground floor. More retail heaven ensues with Selfridges  (your corner shop), just 300m away. The Mailbox  with Harvey Nichols and Pavilions, just 200m from your front door. 

Last but absolutely by no means least, the funky independents of the Jewellery Quarter  - a 10-15 minute walk away - with its fascinating Pen Museum.

Enjoy free entry to one of the best Pre-Raphaelite collections in the world, 400m from your front door, at Birmingham Museum and Art Gallery (they throw in the Staffordshire hoard for good measure).

For contemporary art, Ikon is the place to head for.

Head over to the Custard Factory, where Ikon has its second gallery, with its independent shops and Saturday vintage flea market.

Or lose yourself in a planetarium show at the Thinktank.

Explore the arts and crafts wonder that is Winterbourne House and Garden.

We've pulled together a selection of the above in our downloadable walking tour of Birmingham.
