What better way to explore Birmingham and the Midlands than by bike? There are cycle lanes or paths on many of the major routes into and across the city that take in some of the city’s beautiful parks and waterways en route. Information can be found here
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.
Whatever your level of mobility, you'll find Birmingham a welcoming destination with a high standard of accessibility, helpful people and clear signposting to the majority of attractions, shops and venues.
