Birmingham , in the West Midlands, is Britain's second largest city (by local authority district).Known in the Victorian era, as the "City of a 1000 Trades" and the "Workshop of the World", Brum as locals call the city, is enjoying a 21st century resurgence as a great shopping and cultural destination.
Much of the city centre was destroyed during the Second World War, and the replacement buildings added little to the city.
However, since the 1990s, Birmingham has been undergoing a radical change and many of the post war buildings have been replaced.
The majority of the city centre is now pedestrianized, and the canals cleaned up to make for attractive walkways.
