We may be biased, but to us, Birmingham is one of the most special places to visit at Christmas. There is something for everyone from Panto to Christmas markets and everything in between and the city turns into the most magical winter wonderland that would bring festive joy to even the Grinch’s heart! Birmingham accommodation is in demand over the Christmas season so book your stay in PREMIER SUITES today to avoid disappointment.
Christmas Market in Birmingham
After a year of missing out, the city is delighted to welcome back the popular Frankfurt Christmas Market in 2021. From 4thNovember for seven weeks, the city streets will be filled with the smell of hot gluhwein, schnitzel and spicy sausage and packed with stalls selling unique gifts you won’t find on the high street. There is something for young and old at the Christmas Market with independent shops and businesses selling food and drink, traditional toys, ornaments, and gifts. It’s a great way to catch up with friends and family and make up for lost time.
Ice Skating Birmingham
The big wheel and ice rink return to Centenary Square 4th November 2021 until 9th January 2022. It’s a great family activity suitable for almost all ages and will leave you with some lasting (and probably hilarious!) Christmas memories. Don’t worry about the typical British weather ruining your fun as both the ice rink and the adjoining bar are under cover with some gorgeous festive lighting to set the mood. Nearby, the big wheel gives you the best view of the city and the gorgeous Christmas lights. It’s a popular activity so make sure to book tickers soon.
Panto in Birmingham
Did you know that Panto has been a popular pastime since the 14th Century and is still just as popular today? This year we are spoiled for choice with many shows ranging from community theatre to arena events. One of the biggest shows in the UK is coming to the Birmingham Hippodrome between Saturday 18th December 2021 to Sunday 30th January 2022. They welcome the hilarious and spellbinding Goldilocks and the Three Bears starring actor and singer Jason Donovan. Featuring sets and costumes direct from The London Palladium, this production promises to have riotous comedy, special effects, stunts and international circus acts. It’s a guaranteed evening of fun for the whole family.
Christmas Window Trail
Another great way to explore Birmingham’s winter wonderland this year is the fantastic Christmas Window Trail in the Jewellery Quarter. Shops and store fronts have gone all out decorating their premises with the most elaborate and decadent window displays to delight passers-by. You can enjoy the trail, spectacular lights and two stunning 30-foot Christmas trees in the Jewellery Quarter, just 15minutes’ walk from the city. It’s a great way to keep the little ones entertained while you shop for an extra special gift for an extra special person.
