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.
