Top 4 Christmas Activities In Birmingham For All The Family

We’re so excited that Christmas has finally arrived! We love Christmas in Birmingham; the city really sparkles at this time of the year. The streets fill with excited shoppers, thousands of sparkling lights illuminate the dark winter nights and the sound of Christmas carols fill the air. If you’re looking for your perfect accommodation in Birmingham, remember that the city fills up faster than a Christmas market at this time of the year. Secure your great value accommodation in PREMIER SUITES serviced apartments Birmingham today to avoid disappointment and enjoy some of the many family-friendly activities in the city:

Birmingham Christmas Market:

While shopping doesn’t have much of an appeal for the little ones (unless it’s a toy shop of course!), Christmas markets are a different story. No matter what age your little ones are, there is something truly magical about a Christmas Market in Birmingham. It could be the lights, the music or the festive atmosphere, your little ones are sure to have a ball at this year’s German Market. Let them spend their pocket money supporting a local business at one of the 80+ stalls, choosing something special for themselves or a loved one. This year the market in Victoria Square runs from November 7 to December 23rd inclusive and is less than 10-minute walk from our aparthotels in Birmingham.

Big Wheel & Ice Rink:

Not only do we have the fantastic Birmingham Christmas markets, we also have an ice skating experience you won’t want to miss. For the first time since 2016, the Ice Rink is coming back to Centenary Square. The rink & big wheel will launch on November 7, the same time as the Christmas markets but it will stay open right through to 12th Jan 2020. You can step onto the ice for the first time, practice your skills or perfect your pirouette while gliding across the crisp white ice. If you don’t fancy finding your balance on the ice, you can enjoy a bird’s eye view of the festivities from the top of the illuminated big wheel.

Polar Express:

This year also sees the return of the Polar Express experience, very popular with families. You’ll arrive at Moor Street, less than 10-minutes’ walk from our serviced apartments in Birmingham and be greeted by the sounds of the Polar Express music. The conductor will check your golden tickets and then its all aboard the Polar Express train for a magical adventure. On board, there are actors, singers and dancers ready to surround you all with the enchantment and wonder of Christmas. Tickets sell extremely fast for this very popular event so book now to avoid disappointment!


It’s not Christmas without a bit of ‘He’s behind you!!’. This year we’re spoiled for choice when it comes to our annual pantomime, but one of the best productions is always in Birmingham Hippodrome. This year, they’re taking on Disney classic Snow White and the Seven Dwarves. As always, it brings together a host of stars for Britain’s biggest regional Panto. It promises to be a night full of music, magic and plenty of laughs. The little ones love the zany characters and audience participation and the adults love the grown-up jokes that go straight over their heads!
