1. Library of Birmingham
Residents of Birmingham have always been proud of their reading culture. While the old library in the heart of the city centre was a place of learning and activities, the newer more modern building, inaugurated in 2013, has become the latest addition to the developing architectural marvels that are part of this city.
A massive building filled with books of all kinds from around the world, it is open to the common public and thus has attracted tourists and visitors from far and wide.
Besides literary richness, the library hosts a number of exhibitions, activities, screenings, and two roof top gardens that are excellent places to have a quick snack, take in some rays, and admire spectacular views of the city’s skyline.
