Day Out In Birmingham

I ventured out of the house last Friday and went to Birmingham with my boyfriend for our 2 year anniversary! We booked tickets for the SeaLife centre as I had never been before! As we arrived early to Birmingham, we decided to explore Birmingham for a few hours before we had to go to our allotted time slot! PS- I did take all photos on my iPhone, so if the quality isn’t top notch, that would be why!

Currently, I’m on a budget, but Ben (my boyfriend), decided he wanted to do a bit of spending! So Jack Wills was our first destination and of course I had to take a photo because just look at that chandelier!


Our food of choice was Eat. as they do affordable yet really tasty food! And they also do the BEST pink lemonade I have ever tasted so that’s always a bonus!

I had to pull myself away from the makeup counters, especially Urban Decay. I was crying inside. Everything else I definitely couldn’t afford, let alone a Naked palette!


Once Ben had finished his first half of the shopping trip, (which felt like a year!), we made our way to the SeaLife centre and it was such a pretty walk! My local town is Walsall, and it is nothing special! So whenever I travel to Birmingham, it never fails to amaze me!

I’ve never been to the SeaLife centre before, so as it was my first time everything was so cool! The little tunnel where all the fish are swimming around you is rather amazing, (although little children run around your feet and everybody is taking selfies with the fishes…). Besides that, it was a really awesome place to go! However, I don’t think I’d pay £12 to go again, just a bit pricey in my opinion!

Finally, we ended the trip with a bit more shopping, before exploring Grand Central and all the awesome food stands and shops they have to offer! Although I’ve been to Birmingham since Grand Central has been open, I’ve never seen the second floor and looked at what they have to offer! Needless to say, I was rather amazed!

All in all, it was a great day out and I enjoyed our second anniversary together exploring and adventuring, which is what we both love to do!

  1. Lovely post and captures some of the wonderful aspects of Birmingham. It’s been my summer vacation destination for quite a few years so it’s fun to see it re-invest itself every few years. Off late it’s gone through a foodie revolution of sorts and you’ve got to visit some of the more independent restaurants across the city. Have written about a few on my blog in case you’re interested. Also visit the Custard Factory area next time, it’s quite artistic.

    • Thank you ever so much! I love Birmingham so much and it never fails to amaze me whenever I visit! Every-time I visit there seems to be something new to explore and that’s what I love! And definitely! I’m determined to try out the vegetarian/vegan restaurants they have in particular as well as the independent coffee shops! Can’t wait to start university in two weeks time! I’ve visited there once, must go back there soon! I’ll check your posts out now! Thanks for the feedback 🙂
