World class. Cutting edge. Definitive collection. Rave review. Across the cultural spectrum, the adjectives might vary, but the critical view is consistent. Birmingham has the most compelling and eclectic arts scene.
Although best known as the Victorian "workshop of the world", Birmingham has a rich heritage dating back to the Middle Ages. There's no better place to explore Midlands culture including Shakespeare's Stratford-Upon-Avon.
