Britain's second-largest city, Birmingham was known as the City of a Thousand Trades and the Workshop of the World in the Victorian era.
Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Big Pit National Coal Museum and Royal Air Force (RAF) Museum Cosford. Change things up with these side-trips from Birmingham: The Long Mynd (in Church Stretton), Warwick Castle (in Warwick) and Tanks-Alot (in Helmdon). The adventure continues: examine the collection at Coffin Works, steep yourself in history at Tewkesbury Abbey, buy something for everyone on your list at Grand Central, and pause for some serene contemplation at Old Baptist Chapel.
