"Birmingham is constantly evolving, a metropolis on the up and up," according to Condé Nast Traveller. Whether you fancy a shopping splurge at Selfridges, a gourmet weekend away or a cultural hit, the 4-star Hotel La Tour is a great base from which to explore the city.
The Hippodrome, where you can see comedy, family shows, pantomimes or concerts, is less than a 10-minute walk away. The Thinktank Birmingham Science Museum, investigating everything from locomotives and spitfires to intestines and taste buds, is under 10 minutes' walk. The Custard Factory, Birmingham's creative quarter with independent shopping, is also less than 15 minutes' walk.
Feed the penguins at the National SEA LIFE Centre Birmingham, around 12 minutes' drive, or just over 20 minutes' walk. The Birmingham Museum and Art Gallery -- famous for Pre-Raphaelite art and for the Staffordshire Hoard, the largest hoard of Anglo-Saxon gold ever found -- is approximately 15 minutes' away on foot. If you're looking for a chocolate fix, head to Cadbury World, around 20 minutes' drive.
The hotel has a bar with live music over the weekend, a gym and a Marco Pierre White Mr White's English Chophouse.
All rooms have king-size beds and Wi-Fi. City Rooms are designed in a contemporary décor featuring rich woods.
"Birmingham is now a bonafide tourist destination with food at the core of what it does best. It's also an amazing place to shop, enjoy cultural attractions or spend a lively night out on the town" -- GQ
