Birmingham Named Best City to Visit in the UK

Birmingham has been given the award of Best UK City to Visit by readers of Group Leisure Magazine, beating off stiff competition from York, Liverpool and London. The award was presented at a prestigious ceremony held at the Hilton Birmingham Metropole.

Over the last 6 years, Birmingham has seen an 11% rise in visitors and a continued sense of regeneration throughout the city. Visitors flock to see some of Birmingham’s main attractions including the NEC, Symphony Hall, the new Central Library and the Bullring Shopping Centre. Christmas is a particularly busy time for the city as the Frankfurt Christmas Market brings extra visitors to the area, as well as the lure of the Bullring for Christmas shopping.

Rob Yandell, the managing editor of Group Leisure, commented that ‘the city is delivering a first class experience’, further indicating the support for the Birmingham tourist industry. Birmingham is a vibrant and thriving city which is going from strength to strength, and Chameleon Web Services are pleased to be a part of this.
