Description

Birmingham is a major city in England’s West Midlands region, with multiple Industrial Revolution-era landmarks that speak to its 18th-century history as a manufacturing powerhouse. It’s also home to a network of canals, many of which radiate from Sherborne Wharf and are now lined with trendy cafes and bars. In the city centre, the Birmingham Museum and Art Gallery are known for pre-Raphaelite masterpieces.

At BBC Birmingham’s Visitor Centre, there is an array of outfits and props from BBC TV shows to be discovered. Upstairs you can try your hand at presenting the news or a weather bulletin; a challenge that’s not as easy as it looks! Record your efforts and watch them again at home or at school. Also, visit the BBC Blue Room where you can see tomorrow’s BBC today.
