Things to do around Birmingham

Things to do around Birmingham

Hello again:)

If you are moving into UCB accommodation, you are probably wondering what there is to do around Birmingham.
As I live local, I can let you know about a few places which my friends and I love to go.

Digbeth Dining Club is somewhere that I and my friends love to go before a night out. Although my boyfriend will choose to go there any day as he LOVES the food! There is more than one room for different atmospheres with different music. You can get lots of different cocktails and there are plenty of food stands with worldwide food. I love the Greek stand and the Burger stand. The pudding is also yummy! I choose cheesecake;)

This place is open every Thursday, Friday and Saturday evening.

There is also a lot of graffiti art around Digbeth.


Ghetto Golf Birmingham is just around the corner from Digbeth Dining Club. It is a mini-golf place with lots of interesting stages as you go around. They serve cocktails here too!


Turtle Bay is in the centre of Birmingham near the Mailbox. They do Jamaican food and cocktails. It’s a very lively place and the atmosphere is buzzing. Cocktails are 2 for 1, which is available daily until 7pm* and from 9.30pm-close Sunday-Thursday and 10pm-close Friday-Saturday. The only downside to it is that it must be the same cocktail served at the same time. However, if you go with friends, you could swap with each other:)

We tried Turtle Bay’s Christmas menu and it’s all kinds of delicious
