Anyone looking for memorable things to do in Birmingham must visit some of the city's historical monuments, which allow travelers to step into another era when the city was known as the Workshop of the World. National Trust - Birmingham Back to Backs is a well-known relic from the Victorian era, while Winterbourne House and Garden takes you back to Edwardian era and the time of the Arts and Crafts movement. Lickey Hills Country Park is an ideal destination for those looking to escape the bustle of the city, but if you delve deeper into the countryside outside the city limits, you will also come across family-oriented attractions like Warwick Castle and Alton Towers.
