The spending money was gifted by, but all views are my own

We went into Birmingham today for a day out! It was lovely, we had a little 'date day' just the two of us! We love visiting Birmingham and are lucky enough to live in this fab city. We have stayed in Birmingham city centre a few times and there's loads of lovely hotels if you fancy a stay. Head over to to check out the best hotels in Birmingham.

We started by heading into the Bullring and had a little look in the shops, I love Birmingham as they have a really good selection of shops, there's Selfridges inside the Bullring aswell as John Lewis in Grand Central. I had a look in the Next for some clothes for Amelia.

We then headed for food, there's so much choice for food in Birmingham. There's the usual chains inside the shopping centers, Pizza Express, Pizza Hut, Ed's, Nandos. You get abit more choice just off the high street, we had a look at the menus and decided to go to Bodega, they are a contemporary cantina bringing fresh, homemade South American. I had Quesadillas and Clint had Tacos and we shared some Nachos. The food was so good really tasty, and really affordable, they have a lunchtime menu during the week so you get a main and drink for £7 which is really good! Some of the other places I would recommend this area is The Botanist, they do some really good Cocktails, Head of The Steam have a great drinks selection! The Ivy, this is just at the end of the road and is a little more fancy, they offer afternoon tea, so if your heading into Birmingham for an occasion i'd check them out.

We wanted something sweet but didn't really fancy anything off the Bodega menu, we stumbled upon a desert place within the bullring called my cookie dough which did these amazing cookie dough deserts so we got a couple of these and found a spot to sit outside the bullring overlooking the Cathedral.

Then we headed towards Digbeth to the Custard Factory as we booked a game of mini golf at Ghetto Golf. It's an 18 hole mini-golf experience, with a cocktail bar. It's like an abandoned warehouse which is covered in graffiti and the mini-gold is really unusual, It's such an experience. It's only £10 per person which I think is quite reasonable.

We had such a lovely day, I love exploring Birmingham and as I mentioned before we are so lucky that it's right on our doorstep. Where are your favourite places to visit in Birmingham. What hotels would you recommend?
