Weekend breaks to Sydney
If you are living in the UK, taking a weekend break to Birmingham gives you the opportunity to get away from home without spending all your well earned money on a trip to the continent. Birmingham has lots for the weekend trip traveller to do, including seeing the City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra, the Birmingham Royal Ballet and visiting the Barber Institute of Fine Arts. In fact, if anything, Birmingham is known for music, making it the perfect weekend break location for someone who loves bands. Some of the famous bands that have come from Birmingham include Black Sabbath, Led Zeppelin, and Duran Duran. For those who love jazz a weekend trip during the Mostly Jazz Festival would be amazing. In addition to music, Birmingham is a great weekend break location for people who love literature as Samuel Johnson, W. H. Auden and Tolkien were all residents of the city.
Staying during your Weekend Trip
Weekend trips are always complicated by the need to find overnight accommodation. While hotels are the old standby option, they are often expensive and don’t give you much of a sense of Birmingham. For the more adventurous traveller taking a weekend break and staying with a Birmingham local may be exactly what the doctor ordered. Not only can these hosts provide you with good information for your weekend breaks but they also tend to charge less than even hostels. So not only are you getting advice about what to do and where to stay but you are also getting a bargain. If this thought has intrigued you, check out Wimdu’s website for listings of places.
