On foot

A stroll is a great way to discover Birmingham. There’s so much to see. The city is now full of open and inviting pedestrianised areas. So it’s easy to take a relaxed and safe saunter around the compact centre with attractions, shops and places to eat and drink always close by if the whim takes you.  

There’s also a great choice of great guided walking tours or self-guided trails to explore. See our Tours & Sightseeing section for the details.  

You will be able to plan your journey from your arrival point in the city centre using the Interconnect Birmingham on street totems.

These show the pedestrian route network, railway stations, car parks, bus interchanges and metro stops. You will be able to identify your destination and follow your route using the heads up mapping, and estimated walk times. Or link into public transport to continue a longer onward journey.
