How to get around in Birmingham

As i live in Birmingham, people always seem to ask me what is the best way to get around! So, i thought i would do a little blog about it as i do know a few easy ways of getting around Birmingham if the place you want to go is not within walking distance of where you currently are because if you can walk (depending on the route you would have to take) walking is definitely the best option as you get to see the beautiful sites of Birmingham. But… like i said, if you can’t walk there, personally i would say the easiest and cheapest way of getting around is by bus! That being said, the bus times are not always when you want to travel and they are so unreliable if you need to get somewhere for a specific time! So… that being said, i personally believe that taxis are the best way to get in and around Birmingham, by far!

Birmingham Taxis are the taxi company that i use due to the taxi drivers being very polite and they are comfortable and cost-effective, perfect for getting around without breaking your bank! Getting in and around Birmingham can be so difficult! Especially if you are driving yourself as parking isn’t exactly a breeze! I would definitely recommend getting transport as it is so easy to just jump in and then jump out at your destination, no sweat!

Thanks everyone!

Fine dining at its best

Fine dining at its best

Hello everyone, anyone off out tonight? Just thought i would give you a little blog as to where you need to go if you want to have a night of fine dining and amazing food! So, the place you must go is ‘Fumo’, an award-winning Italian tapas restaurant. It is absolutely delightful! Fumo is a place to go and try the most amazing Italian food in Birmingham! It is a place where you get treated like celebrities and you are looked after all night by a waitor or waitress that will literally make sure your every need is met.

If you fancy a drink, the different ranges of beer are mouth wateringly good and the cocktails are just out of this world! It is a place that you can really relax and unwind but you can also really let go and have a brilliant, loud night! There is such a mix of different people in Fumo that you can literally go and enjoy it whatever mood you are in.

The food is absolutely to die for and if you go, make sure you try out the lamb cutlets, they’re phenomenal!

Thanks everyone.

Get to know the real Joe

Get to know the real Joe

Hi everyone, Joe here. For my very first blog i thought i would tell you a little bit about myself, just so you can get to know me a bit more. I have lived in Birmingham for 26 years which is in fact all of my life! I absolutely love living in Birmingham and as i live basically in the city centre, i have really got to know Birmingham personally. Everywhere i have ever been, i have either hated it or loved it, i find in Birmingham, there is no in between!


A few weeks back, i went to a restaurant (I won’t name names on this occasion) for lunch with to catch up with a friend and to my horror, the food has literally been warmed up as the mash was crusty on the top and everything was boiling hot on the outside and then ice cold on the inside, it was disgusting! I was so disgusted that i literally just got up and walked out with my friend promising never to go there ever again! I was so disappointed that i had wasted so much time in that restaurant!


After a few naughty words were said in my head, i decided that my blog idea wouldn’t be such a bad idea at all as i could steer the people of Birmingham away from bad restaurants and head them towards the good ones! As well as telling them the easiest and best way to get there and some of the best places to see and stay!


Keep an eye out for future posts, i have some great ones coming up for you! Stayed tuned!

Thanks everyone!
