The city is located in the West Midlands, central England. It is the UK’s second largest conurbation and with its industrial past is known for a large network of canals and factory buildings.

The city is famous for architecture such as Birmingham Library, The Cube, The Rotunda Conversion, Brindleyplace Buildings, New Street Gateway Project, Selfridges Birmingham and the Beetham Tower – 10 Holloway Circus.

Birmingham Architecture Walking Tours

Birmingham Architecture Tours can focus contemporary buildings or traditional buildings or both. The Birmingham Architecture Tour typically focuses on the key buildings in the West Midlands but our guides can try to assist with more specific architectural interests such as retail buildings or interior designs.
