A Brummie Home and Abroad Guide to 48 Hours in Birmingham

A Brummie Home and Abroad Guide to 48 Hours in Birmingham, Birmingham, England (B)

It was a #LikeALocal prompt from the peeps at GoEuro that reminded me that I had never done a city guide for my own hometown. So what would I recommend for visitors to Birmingham with a weekend to play with?

If you’ve arrived on a Friday and are ready for a drink or two and a bite to eat, look no further than Digbeth Dining Club. It’s about a 10 minute walk from the city centre, even less if you’re arriving in Brum by National Express Coach. If you’re venturing into Digbeth then you may as well start off at The Old Crown, a 640-something year old pub with olde-world charm, and a great big beer garden. As tempting as the menu is, move practically next door to the two or three units and covered courtyard which make up Digbeth Dining Club. There’s a rotating guest list of some of the Midland’s best street food vendors, and it’s highly likely you’ll find something to please everyone. Dishes are usually around £6-£8 each and there are three bars, including a specialist gin and cocktail bar hidden upstairs at Mama Roux’s. My personal DDC favourites are Buddha Belly, The English Indian and Kebab Cartel, with sugar cravings satisfied by The Bournville Waffle Company. ......
