Birmingham Becomes Tourist Hotspot
“Birmingham’s industrial past meant that some people’s perceptions of Birmingham were based on the city as it was in the 70s,” says Emma Gray of Marketing Birmingham. “They had people doing industrial work and spaghetti junction in their minds, a city doing functional things. Now we’ve got high end and high street shopping, a vibrant food scene as well as cultural diversity.”
The occupancy rates for Birmingham’s hotels peaked at 99% and averaged 75% in 2016 – both the highest on record, according to the new figures from economists in Marketing Birmingham’s Regional Observatory.

Birmingham On The Rise | £500 Per Sqft
The UK’s second city, with a population of more than a million, has cast off its image of motorways, industrial decline and urban unrest to become a budding centre for financial services, new technology and architectural showpieces, Knight Frank said in a report.
The city’s renaissance is being fuelled by the arrival of big banks, professional services firms and the planned building of the HS2 rail link to London alongside the success of Jaguar Land Rover and other manufacturers.
Mirroring this development, pints of mild and uninspiring nightlife have given way to glitzy bars, Michelin-starred restaurants and upmarket shops. John Lewis, whose former managing director Andy Street is now the Tory candidate for Birmingham’s mayor, opened a 170,000 sq ft store last year.
Deutsche Bank opened a Birmingham office 10 years ago and now employs 1,200 people, including corporate bankers and wealth managers. Next year HSBC will return its retail bank’s head office to the founding city of Midland Bank, which HSBC bought in 1992. The move will create 1,200 jobs. The closure of regional tax offices leading to job losses will be Birmingham’s gain in 2019 when HM Revenue & Customs opens a regional hub employing at least 3,000 people.
