Spectacular! Is there much of a view from the big wheel? It seems dwarfed by its surroundings.

You probably can see St Andrews whether that's much of a view ( it's not a church) is debatable particularly if you are of a claret & blue persuasion.

The city centre is built on raised ground.

I can confirm neither are visible and both are mediocre stadiums and football club's compared to our northern cities.

Birmingham by now should have at least 1 "mega" stadium

I bet if the UK/Ireland joint World Cup bid wins , Birmingham wouldn't even have representation and why would we, there are plenty of superior stadiums to choose from, a world away from Villa Park.

The time has nearly come Ray, well as long as we are not in lockdown, lol


Forget any lockdown, as soon as this place is open I'm booking a table.

Pre-dinner cocktails at The Alchemist, post-dinner ale at The Old Contemptibles with a night at The Grand..... perfect (y)

I'm so sad the The Jekyll and Hyde has permanently closed it's doors, such a fantastic pub. Really hoping there is someone out there who can revive it.

Cracking picture but definitely not the best angle to truly show off the full extent of the Birmingham skyline :unsure:

In the next few weeks I'll try and make some time* to grab a picture from Tyseley or Adderley Park.

* I bet I forget
