Did You Know...?

JRR Tolkien wrote Lord of The Rings and The Hobbit right here in Birmingham. The twin towers from the book were inspired by Edgbaston Water Works, and Sarehole Mill features in the town of Hobbiton in The Hobbit. Now who said Birmingham wasn’t a fantastic adventure?!

The Best Birmingham Brands

  • Cadbury Of course, we’d all like to think this very British chocolate is made in the magical ‘Cadbury Land’, but it actually made its humble beginnings on Bull Street in Birmingham. When the factory couldn’t supply the demand, the Cadbury brothers created Bournville, where the company still operates today.
  • Typhoo The perfect cuppa, no matter what time of day. Typhoo was first made in Birmingham in 1903 and has continued to quench the nation’s thirst since. Fun fact: Typhoo actually means ‘doctor’ in traditional Chinese. We always knew a good cup of tea was the best medicine!
  • Harvester A more modern addition to Birmingham (compared to Cadbury and Typhoo), Harvester opened its doors in 1983 and now has 220 restaurants operating over the UK. Trip to the salad bar, anyone?

Top 3 After Work Drink Bars

  • The Night Owl
    The venue that soul fans across the UK have been crying out for. Northern Soul isn’t just a type of music, it’s a way of life! A drink and a dance will do you right.
    17-18 Lower Trinity St, Birmingham B9 4AG
  • Birmingham Bierkeller
    The best German beers served in two pint steins, all brought ice cold to your table by waitresses in classic Bavarian dress. Do post-team building activities in Birmingham get any better than this?!
    195-196 Broad St, Birmingham B15 1AY
  • The Jekyll & Hyde
    Jolly good cocktail bar with gin parlour for parched patrons looking after an absolutely spiffy day of team building Birmingham activities. Chin chin! Fun venue with dark Dickensian décor.
    28 Steelhouse Lane, City Centre, Birmingham B4 6BJ
