Cheap flights to Birmingham, UK

Book a cheap flight to Birmingham and take in what England’s 2nd largest city has to offer. No UK city is more hampered by careworn clichés than Birmingham.  Although reinvigorated by its regeneration-fuelled renaissance, visitors’ perceptions still struggle to get past ‘Balti food’, ‘canals’ and ‘self-deprecating locals calling you ‘bab’. So let’s get this straight. Brum IS the best place to eat curry outside Southern Asia, but Birmingham’s burgeoning offering of Michelin-starred restaurants proves the city has less spicy ways of palate-pleasing. A wander round one of Brum’s botanic gardens soothes the soul more than any canal boat ride. As for the locals, they’re a talented, diverse bunch.

For shopping lovers you won’t be disappointed when you take a flight to Birmingham. Home to the Bullring, one of the UK’s largest shopping centres, recently completely regenerated and home to a host of stores including Topshop, H&M, and Selfrdiges. If that’s not enough there’s also the Mailbox shopping centre which houses designer labels including Harvey Nicols and Emporio Armani.

We offer cheap flights to Birmingham from Belfast City, Alicante, Amsterdam, Faro, Geneva, Ireland West Knock, Malaga, Murcia, Nice, Palma (Majorca), and Prague.
