Birmingham is the youngest city in Europe, and it caters for the young adult demographic fantastically. There's loads of shopping to be done in the Bullring and the adjacent New Street, numerous clubs along Broad Street, and lots of pubs and restaurants (including many Wethershoons'!) everywhere! As it's a large city, it can be quite expensive, but there's always happy hours, McDonalds, and Primark! Every winter there's also the German Christmas Market, which is always lovely to walk down and buy some presents and food. There's great transport, with lots of frequent bus routes and train lines, plus the new tram system so wherever you live, you can get about super easily.
