Today we wanted to look back at some of our favourite things to do in the city that we can’t anymore. Whether that be heading to our favourite restaurant, or using certain transport to get into the city, we’re looking back at the time to see just how different our weekends used to be.

Travel back in time with us as we look back at the things we used to do in Birmingham that we simply can’t anymore.
