Bimingham Adventure Day Two | City Centre

To finish of my Birmingham blog posts, which have taken me so long to write oops, today I'm going to be posting about day two of our trip. Day one can be read here and Slam Dunk festival day three can be found here for anyone who hasn't already checked them out. As day one was a more chilled and relaxed day we decided that for day two we were going to travel to Birmingham city centre and check out what the city life was like there. It was extremely opposite to how calm it was on the first day and we had a jam packed day of shopping, exploring and just being a general tourist. I really love writing these too.



   

   

We got the bus to the city centre, and thankfully did not get lost on the way by some miracle. We got off at the Bullring shopping centre where we spent most of the day. The place is absolutely huge, like four floors with two separate buildings packed full of shops, as well as endless amounts of roads with interconnecting malls, markets and shops it was crazy trying to find our way around. There were just too many places to visit. There was such a beautiful cathedral right across from the shopping centre and I really liked how the old merged with the new it was nice. I spent way too much time looking around in Superdrug as the Superdrug in the UK is much bigger and better. Plus there were shops such as Victoria Secret and Krispy Kreme that we don't have in Dublin and I was super excited to visit. We picked up four doughnuts to try and they were so delicious and aesthetically pleasing I must say. How pretty and tasty do they look?




After exploring and buying a few bits in the shopping mall we decided to explore the streets. The cute cacti are from Urban Outfitters. The place seemed never ending and we were so tired after visiting almost every shop the place had to offer that we didn't end up going too far. I had wanted to visit some more historic sights but we got slightly lost and ended heading back to shop and took a visit to shops such as Lush, which are always a good choice.


   

   




   

All our shopping had worn us down so we decided to grab Pizza Hut for dinner, We got a Margarita to share with fries and bottomless Pepsi, which came in about five different flavours like cherry and vanilla it was so interesting. Again look how good the food looks. It makes me so hungry looking at it. Pizza Hut do the best thick pizza bases I've ever tried. So good.



   

We just headed back to the hotel after food as it took about an hour on the bus. Who knew shopping could be so tiring? Although we have most of the same shops back in Dublin it's always interesting to see what they're like in other countries. I'd also never been to a shopping centre so big before it was so intimidating but so cool I really wish we had something like it over here it's a lot of fun, but bad for your bank I guess. 

With this post is the end of my little Birmingham travel posts I hope you've enjoyed reading them as I did writing them.
Has anyone ever been in Birmingham city centre before or the Bullring shopping centre before?

  9. Hehehe it's taken me nearly six months to cover my last trip so no judgement from me! When I read about those Krispy Kreme's I was very much doubtful because the other week a friend insisted on grabbing a box and they were terrible. But your box looks delicious! I can tell you ours was not as nicely presented and decorated as that. Nor was the menu extensive either.

    1. Really? They take longer to write than I think they will! No way? They all look so good in the shop? Maybe it was dropped by accident? I was being so careful not to drop mine! But they tasted so good! They didn't have much choice where we went either there were about 6 donuts to choose from which was annoying! x

  10. I swear, if I finally get to go to live to the UK for a year one of the first places I'll go to is Superdrug, I keep reading about it and it looks like it has EVERYTHING you might want! I loved to read this post and see your stay in Birmingham is going great :)

    1. I know same! Superdrug has a lot of things and they can be good value but they don't have everything! I think Boots can be better sometimes, but Superdrug have some different brands like Make Up Revolution and stuff, the one in Birmingham is huge and super busy! Thank you! It went so well I wish I could go back! x
