You're an Eager Explorer!

You’re up and out the house at 8am waiting with the kids for the attractions to open. You are likely to be armed with money off vouchers and a packed lunch/picnic in your military sized rucksack...

 

You love to get off the beaten track – so much so you may have even beat out new tracks for others to explore!

Previously you have adopted animals at zoos which you regularly visit and you are the patron of numerous visitor attractions.  You are probably on first name terms with the staff at your local visitor centre and can advise anyone who has popped in to make an enquiry.

You've wandered into the right city! You will discover a myriad of things to do in Birmingham in 2013 – check out our Attractions page there’s something to keep the whole family entertained! Or our tours & sightseeing section which may get you reaching for your walking boots!
