City street scene

Birmingham City Centre a

This is the centre of Birmingham, the second largest city in the UK, on a cold and snowy day.  Birmingham is a great city and very friendly, (by which I mean it’s still possible to engage someone in conversation without being thought of as odd or a  mugger).  Whilst I am happiest in places of peace and quiet, surrounded by as much open space as possible,  cities have their uses and I like Birmingham.

    The city seems to have some nice open spaces too.

      It does. The photo doesn’t really do it justice given the grey day but I think it is quite an attractive city, especially for one so large.

    Me too! It will always be home from home for me. The shop assistants are so friendly and there’s so much to do and see. I love the familiarity of returning there, not just visiting dear friends but walking in the Botanical Gardens or mooching around the markets. 🙂

      For a big city it has a really nice feel to it. I find the city centre attractive and I feel comfortable. The people are great. Brummies are unpretentious and friendly with a great sense of humour.
