Holiday Destination: Birmingham

Birmingham is a city and metropolitan borough in the West Midlands of England. It is the most populous British city outside the capital London. Lies at the heart of the West Midlands conurbation. A medium sized market town during the medieval period, Birmingham grew to international prominence in the 18th century at the heart of the Midlands Enlightenment and subsequent Industrial Revolution, which saw the town at the forefront of worldwide developments in science, technology and economic organization, producing a series of innovations that laid many of the foundations of modern industrial society. It was being hailed as the first manufacturing town in the world. Birmingham's distinctive economic profile, with thousands of small workshops practicing a wide variety of specialized and highly skilled trades, encouraged exceptional levels of creativity and innovation and provided a diverse and resilient economic base for industrial prosperity that was to last into the final quarter of the 20th century. Its resulting high level of social mobility also fostered a culture of broad based political radicalism, that under leaders from Thomas Atwood to Joseph Chamberlain was to give it a political influence unparalleled in Britain outside London and a pivotal role in the development of British democracy.

Tourist Attraction in or Near by Birmingham

Barber Institute of Fine Arts

The Barber Institute of Fine Arts is an art gallery and concert hall in Birmingham, England. It is situated in purpose built premises on the campus of the University of Birmingham. The Grade II listed Art Deco building was designed by Robert Atkinson in the 1930s and opened in 1939 by Queen Mary. The first building to be purpose built for the study of art history in the United Kingdom, it was described by architectural historian Sir John Summerson as representing better than almost any other building except, perhaps the RIBA in Portland Place the spirit of English architecture in the 1930s. The layout of the museum is centred around a central concert hall which is surrounded by lecture halls, offices and libraries on the ground floor and art galleries on the first floor.

Aston Hall

Aston Hall is a municipally owned Jacobean style mansion in Aston, Birmingham, England. Washington Irving used it as the model for Brace bridge Hall in his stories in The Sketch Book of Geoffrey Crayon. There is a hole in the staircase where a cannonball went through a window, an open door and into the banister. The house was built for Sir Thomas Holt and remained in the family until 1817 when it was sold and leased by James Watt Jr, son of the world-famous industrial pioneer James Watt. The house was then purchased in 1858 by a private company (the Aston Hall and Park Company Ltd) for use as a public park and museum.

Cadbury World

Cadbury World is a visitor attraction created and run by the Cadbury chocolate company at Bournville, Birmingham, England. The attraction opened in 1990 after two years of planning, and has seen numerous developments since. Cadbury World is a one way self guided tour. Recently, headsets have become available for a sound audio tour narrated by Sally Boazman. The average walk around the exhibition lasts about 1 ¾ hours, not including the Bournville Experience museum, which is situated around the back of the main visitors centre.

Sarehole Mill

Sarehole Mill is a Grade II listed water mill in an area once called Sarehole on the River Cole in Hall Green, Birmingham, England. It is now run as a museum by the Birmingham City Council. It is one of only two working water mills in Birmingham, with the other being New Hall Mill in Walmley, Sutton Coldfield. Sarehole was used mostly to grind corn. Matthew Boulton's father rented the Mill and Sarehole farm in 1756. When his father died, Boulton used the Mill for making buttons and for metal rolling until he moved his operations to Handsworth in 1761.

Think tank

Think tank is an organization that conducts research and engages in advocacy in areas such as social policy, political strategy, economics, military, technology issues and in the creative and cultural field. Most think tanks are non profit organizations, which some countries such as the United States and Canada provide with tax exempt status. Other think tanks are funded by governments, advocacy groups, or businesses, or derive revenue from consulting or research work related to their projects. The following article lists global think tanks according to continental categories, and then sub categories by country within those areas. These listings are not comprehensive, given more than 4,500 think tanks exist world wide. In general, this article is an introduction to the think tank landscape, and provides a way to quickly navigate to those of interest.

Its one million litre ocean tank houses giant green sea turtles, blacktip reef sharks and tropical reef fish, with a fully transparent underwater tunnel. The building was designed by Sir Norman Foster. However, Foster has effectively buried this project in his portfolio, and is reportedly embarrassed by the final building. The National Sea Life Centre has an extensive seahorse breeding programme, with many species of newly reared seahorses in tanks viewable by visitors. In other displays, it has a Giant Pacific Octopus, as well as horseshoe crabs, green sea turtles, lobsters, sharks, sting rays, and otters.
