FirstStay serviced apartments have been the home base for families from far and wide. The simple reason is that Birmingham has some fantastic family attractions that kids, parents and grandparents all love. Why not plan a special getaway with the whole family in a FirstStay fully serviced apartment and book in to visit one of the great locations below.
Great for rainy or sunny days, the Birmingham Library is located in an iconic building in Centenary Square and is a showcase for internationally important archives, photography and, of course, rare books. There is a state-of-the-art gallery with public access to all the collections. The National Film Archive is also located in the Birmingham Library. With a studio theatre and other performance spaces, children of all ages are sure to be entertained. Check the library’s web site for information on activities and events.
Often overlooked, the Ikon Gallery is located in the former Oozells Street Board School in the heart of Birmingham. This gothic building, majestic in its own right, is a gallery of national and international acclaim. Host to impressive tours, workshops and seminars, there is always something on at the Ikon. Family friendly activities abound including the Art Explorer programme and craft activities.
The Thinktank science museum is not to be missed and it’s just a stone’s throw away from your FirstStay apartment base. The Spitfire Gallery alone, a new addition, is a fantastic display of these iconic planes, beloved in Birmingham and all over Britain. Thinktank is an award-winning, fun-packed family day out.
Also in the heart of downtown Birmingham, Brindleyplace to be exact, you can experience sea life up close including sharks, turtles, penguins, starfish and more. I believe we caught a glimpse of Dory and Nemo last time we visited! As with many attractions, and our own FirstStay apartments, booking online gets you a discounted price and the best guarantee for entry on your chosen dates and times.
Just opposite the National Sea Life Centre and newly opened, the LEGOLAND Discover Centre in Birmingham is full of creative, fun family activities including a 4D cinema, a soft play city and a Lego Racers build and test centre. Fun, games, rides and more all under one roof…it is no wonder LEGOLAND has become so popular with families. Be sure to book online for the best price and choice of dates and times.
