With Birmingham to the north and Gloucester to the south, the city of Worcester is located in the West Midlands of England. The picturesque city is dominated by its cathedral and by the River Severn that runs though it. The city hosts a number of cultural events each year. The Worcester Festival celebrates a variety of music, theatre and cinema and is held every August. The festival concludes with a firework display on the banks of the River Severn on the Monday of the August Bank Holiday weekend. Now in its 4th year the city also hosts the Worcester Music Festival which includes original music performed mainly by local bands and artists. Performances are free and are held in the many bars, clubs and community buildings in the city, including churches. Another recently formed event is the Worcester Film Festival that was founded in 2012. The festival is focused on placing Worcestershire on the film-making map and encourages local people to get involved in film making. Finally, there is the Victorian themed Christmas Fayre which attracts many visitors each year.
Composer Sir Edward Elgar's father ran a music shop at the end of High Street and a statue of Sir Edward Elgar stands near the original location of that shop. His birthplace is a short way outside Worcester in the village of Broadheath.
The city of Birmingham, located in the West Midlands region of England, was known in Victorian times as the "City of a 1,000 trades" and the "Workshop of the World" which is recognition of the city's traditional industrial path.
The city centre is partially pedestrianised and most of the city's attractions can be reached on foot. Many visitors enjoy the walk from the International Convention Centre (the ICC) and the Symphony Hall to the Bull Ring Shopping Centre. This is a walk of roughly 20 minutes but allow much longer if you want to stop on the way. The Bullring Shopping Centre has recently been redeveloped and now offers shoppers a vast range of shops, including Selfridges, bars and restaurants to while away the hours. Other shopping destinations in the city include the Pavilions shopping centre, The Mailbox and the Pallasades which is located above Birmingham New Street railway station.
Birmingham also has a large canal network and the area immediately adjoining the canals in the city centre have been developed over recent years and now offer visitors an enhanced environment and high level of amenities. The canal paths make excellent walking routes.
