I just booked myself on a cheap Flybe ticket for a day trip to Birmingham on May 1 (still a long time to go).
I have less than 24h, arriving at 2200 on April 30 and flying back out at 1700 on May 1.
I've never been to Birmingham and I'd like to use that day to get a good first impression. Ideally I'd head for a hostel in the evening after my departure, then on Wednesday have breakfast at a nice cafe, stroll around town for a couple of hours, then visit some museum that might be interesting in the early afternoon, then get back to the airport in time for my flight.
Any locals who might have some suggestions? Any good value / cheap hostel ideas? I don't really need anything fancy, just a place to crash for the night.
Or would anybody like to meet me for a pint on Tuesday evening?
