Looking To The Future

Undoubtably, we all need something positive to look forward too during this difficult time. So, why not dream about all the places to visit around Birmingham for when we return to university? Personally, I know how quickly a year can pass without ticking off many bucket list plans. But let’s make next year different! These are some of my favourite spots I have visited in Brum so far…

Get inspired!

The Library of Birmingham – This library has lots of secret spots. Take the escalators up to level 3 and you will find the first outside garden terrace: The Discovery Terrace. If you want to brave the heights even more, level 7 is home to the Secret Garden. It is one of the best spots to get a view of Birmingham. Do not forget the Shakespeare Memorial Room for some history on the top floor too!

Ghetto Golf – This is indisputably the greatest crazy golf in Birmingham. It has a cocktail bar, DJ, neon lights and the most creative 18-hole circuit. Have you ever played miniature golf through a bus? Well this is one of the holes at Ghetto Golf!

Winterbourne House and Garden – Want to get away from the bustling city? Just minutes away from the university campus is your escape to the countryside! Winterbourne House and Garden is home to some beautiful and relaxing scenery.

National Sea Life Centre – Missing nature in Birmingham? The National Sea Life Centre is an underwater world. You can see an array of creatures from penguins to sharks!

Rush UK trampoline park – Fancy something other than the gym for some exercise? This trampoline park is just a quick walk from Bournville station. You can play trampoline dodgeball, basketball and try out some flips into a foam pit.

Ikon Gallery – If you like the Tate Modern, this is the gallery for you! Let your creativity run wild.
