Birmingham is great for nightlife and shopping, and you'll never be short of things to do. There are many bars and clubs, especially around the Broad Street area. The Bullring and NEC are the best places for shopping, there are a variety of high street and high end shops but there is something for everyone. There are also many other shopping centres and retail parks, if you prefer places that aren't as busy. The transport links are good and the buses and trains cover all of Birmingham and the Black Country. There are many restaurants all around the centre of Birmingham and in the different areas, from big chains to small local places. As for entertainment, there is a nice theatre and many cinemas, bowling alleys and other things to do around Birmingham. Ghetto Golf is definitely something to try out, its an experience unlike any other!
