An excellent venue a short stroll from the Bull Ring. I’ve had many memorable gigs at this place and more to come, hopefully. The drinks are a little pricey but if you catch the right gig cheap alternatives will be available i.e. coffee and cakes. The building itself is great - its been run rampant by ambitious art students adding a tag of thier own, making it a truly original venue.

A fantasic venue. The Dome was considered a white elephant once but now its a premier venue in the world. I managed to capture Led Zep last year and it was a great evening. The bar was always quick to serve and the toilets were as busy as you’d expect. Transport to and from was typical but well organised. If you get the chance to go to any type of show here, I’d recomend it.

Do not visit on a Saturday - the pushy crowds dictate your path, forcing unjust passing of an array of items you’ll never see again. Try and go during the week when its slightly quieter and have a good mooch around - theres plenty here! If you’re rather conservative, give it a miss. If you’re rather liberal, excited by the different and looking for originality, I can’t think of a better place in England to visit.
Some nice bars and bistros adorn the lock front so make a proper day of it. These markets DEFINE the alternative scene.

I like shopping here but sometimes the choice is a bit dreary. Their mens clothes section only stocks the main lines and are located right at the back of the store. I much preferred the layout and style of old. Their sale section is usually pretty good, so I’d recomend a visit at least.

A day I’ll never forget. Located just over from Parliament, get off the tube at Westminster and cross the bridge. The views were spectacular and the capsules are quite relaxing, so even if you fear heights you’ll feel safe. Try and catch it during sun set to see Canary Wharf and the City in its day time and evening granduer. It wasnt too pricey and takes about 30 mins for a complete ride. Beware of the ques - the excitements pacifies the waiting somewhat but on a typical english day the rain will dampen the hardest of spirits.

Very expensive but a nice treat. Designer shops, pricey car parking and an untamable hair do make this a rare occasion for me, but if you want a day to pamper yourself, visit the trendy hair salon, go to the trendy cafe and look trendy with a cup of mocha in your hand. A nice building too.

Big store, big choice and big prices. Some bargains can be found but I love visiting for the food hall in the bottom floor. Monkey picked tea any one? A little bit of everything, from Lucky Charms to £3000 bottles of vodka, this is a must stop in Birmgingham. Careful you don’t but the vodka with a dead scorpion in the bottle though - no, actually do buy it. An experience.
Lakeside The Custard Factory, Birmingham, West Midlands B9 4AA
A great night out and rather aptly named. This can be medicine for weeks after attending a gig. I’ve caught many bands, from Sunn to Wolf Eyes and each one has been memorable. The pond just outside is refreshing for a dip in the summer when all those sweaty bodies increase the temperature somewhat - the venue is rather small, if thats good or bad is up to you - I think its perfect.

For those with an art and literary interest, this is the place to go in London. Yes, thats a real thatched roof and the performances are nigh sublime. they even use old methods of stage contruction to keep it all the more authentic. A little pricey, but worth it. A good stones throw from Tower Bridge if you take the right route.
44-46 Broad St, Hereford, Herefordshire HR4 9BG
A little dated but a Hereford institution. A stones throw form the Cathedral, an afternoon cup of tea will round off a gentle day out. I’ve never stayed the evening but I’ve heard the rooms are lovely.
