Easily one of the city's most recognisable and identifiable landmarks, the Birmingham Telecom Tower, otherwise known as the BT Tower, was 50 years old in 2015, and rises 152 metres above the ground. It's in walking distance to a wide array of hotels, restaurants and boutiques, as well as numerous visitor attractions and nightlife venues.
Still Birmingham's Tallest Structure
The Tower is 22 metres higher than the second tallest structure in Birmingham, 10 Holloway Circus, which is the city's tallest residential building. Only a short walk away is St. Paul's Church, a well-preserved 18th century landmark that overlooks one of Birmingham's most attractive public squares. Whether you're considering a luxury four star hotel or a budget friendly two star venue, most accommodation establishments in the city provide flexible check-in and check-out times for your convenience.
Also Close to the International Convention Centre
Featuring the world-renowned Symphony Hall and outstanding conference facilities, the International Convention Centre hosts many prestigious exhibitions and corporate events during the year. It was built on the former Bingley Hall, which was Britain's first purpose-built exhibition venue, opened in 1850 but destroyed by a fire in the 1980s.
Nearby, you could also explore the Gas Street Basin, which is the meeting point of the historic BCN Main Line canal and Worcester and Birmingham Canal. Today, it's home to thriving restaurants and pubs, having benefited from millions of pounds of regeneration in the last couple of decades.
