Romantic Breaks in Birmingham

In the mood for romance in Birmingham?

With stunning views and plenty of space to relax, Staying Cool is one of the most romantic places to stay in Birmingham. Here are our suggestions for making the most of this great city:  

Noon - arrive by train in Birmingham
Begin your time away in style with a glass of bubbly at Fizz! in Grand Central, which wraps around the city's stunning New Street Train Station.

12.30pm - drop your bags off just two minutes’ walk away with Staying Cool. We’ll take good care of them for you and pop them in your apartment for your return.

  • 1pm – time to choose:

  • Love history? Birmingham’s Jewellery Quarter is a fascinating area, described by English Heritage as ‘a national treasure’

  • Love design? Amble down to Digbeth and the cool of the Custard Factory, Birmingham's creative quarter


  • Love shopping? You have five shopping centres, five major department stores and lots of funky independent retailers to choose from

  • Love art? Explore Birmingham’s excellent art galleries such as BMAG and IKON

3pm – pop back to Staying Cool for a break and to take in the views. If you’ve booked one of our romance packages, you’ll find some treats waiting for you. Take a couple of hours to relax.



7pm – Time for an early evening drink. Ginger’s Bar is one of our favourite places for cocktails.

8pm – the food scene in Birmingham is fantastic. Ask our Guest Relations staff for advice on the perfect place to eat. 

10pm The Jam House is a great place to head for if you are in the mood for live music and drinks. Or take a stroll along one of the city’s canals in search of a night cap.


Time for bed? – curl up together in your apartment and enjoy the stunning nightscapes. 

Enjoy a long lie in and then head for the The Mailbox for brunch (we’d recommend Gas Street Social), high-class shopping and a film at the swanky Everyman Cinema (you can book a sofa in advance).
