About Birmingham

Birmingham, in the West Midlands, is a very centrally located city in the UK that benefits from a great transport network. Project management training in Birmingham is a perfect choice and the city is, of course, well known for being the home of Cadbury World, The Bullring Shopping centre and as a manufacturing powerhouse.

Transport

Centrally located in the middle of the UK, you would imagine that Birmingham would be easy to get to and you would be right. The city is home to Birmingham Airport (formerly Birmingham International Airport), this is located just a few miles from the city centre and linked by the free-to-use monorail system to Birmingham International Station. The station itself offers links to stations all over the country with regular trains to Glasgow, Manchester and London to name just a few of the larger destinations.

Birmingham is at the heart of the UK motorway network and linked by the M5, M6, M40 and M42. The M1 is just 30 minutes away and the M6 Toll Road also offers another popular travel solution. Birmingham is also home to Spaghetti Junction. Sometimes referred to as Gravelly Hill Interchange, this is one “attraction” many visitors to the area prefer to avoid.

The city centre itself has a very good bus, tram and train network making it easy to get around. Walking and cycling around the city centre are also popular.

Accommodation is an important consideration when attending a project management training course and a well located hotel will allow you to get the rest you need in order to give your full attention to the training sessions.

Edgbaston Park Hotel (53 Edgbaston Park Rd, Birmingham B15 2RS)

This hotel is one of two that are a part of the University of Birmingham and is located 2 miles outside the city centre. It has only been open for a relatively short time but is one of the most popular 4 star hotels you will find in the Birmingham area. It is a modern hotel with a contemporary feel, free Wi-Fi and cutting edge conference and meeting room facilities. If you are travelling by car this hotel is ideal as it has onsite parking for guests and is outside the clear air zone.

Jury’s Inn Birmingham (245 Broad St, Birmingham B1 2HQ)

Centrally located Jury’s Inn is just a short walk from Birmingham New Street station, it also benefits from 200 onsite parking spaces. This is a substantially sized hotel that is part of a well known hotel group. All of the modern rooms are stylishly decorated. The hotel has a number of conference and meeting rooms making it a good choice for hosting a training course.

Hyatt Regency Birmingham (2 Bridge St, Birmingham B1 2JZ)

Centrally located near Birmingham New Street station the hotel is located in the clean air zone, which is something worth considering if you plan to drive here. The local bus and train service is excellent so getting around is easy. The hotel offers incredible views over the city and is incredibly stylish and modern with all of the facilities you should need when away from home. There is an onsite business centre for those who want to catch up with a little work and the meeting room facilities are ideal for hosting training courses with large or smaller groups.

Meeting rooms

All of the hotels we have featured in our guide offer excellent meeting room facilities. However, it is often nice to have a change of scenery when you are away on training in Birmingham and there are plenty of alternative meeting rooms.

NRC Birmingham

The National Resource Centre is a hub for meetings, and events and offers a staggering 11,000 sq. ft of facilities over 2 floors. This is a brand new facility based in the heart of Birmingham and as such offers incredible facilities that are suitable for a range of meeting types and is particularly suited for in person training courses. Part of the Aston Cross Trade Park the NRC is located at 4th Floor Aqueous II Aston Cross Business Village, Chester St, Birmingham B6 5RQ.

Regus

Regus specialise in hiring meeting and business spaces out all over the country. They have a good selection of different venues available in the centre of Birmingham. All of their facilities are well equipped, serviced and have all of the modern equipment you might need to run a highly productive project management training course.

Whilst participating in face-to-face classroom training in Birmingham you will probably find yourself with some free time in the evenings. Here are just some of the things that the city has to offer.

Restaurants

Birmingham is known as the birthplace of the Balti – a fusion dish that rose to fame during the 1980s and 1990s, and just like Manchester, Birmingham has its own cluster of Indian restaurants. Known as the Balti Triangle, this area is located to the south of the city centre and includes Stoney Lane, Ladypool Road and Stratford Road. This is certainly an area worth exploring if you are looking for excellent curry. If you are looking for somewhere where the A-listers hang out then head over to The Mailbox and Brindleyplace where you will find the Marco Pierre White Steakhouse Bar and Grill. The youngest chef to ever receive three Michelin stars, this celebrity chef chose to hand his stars back to Michelin in 1999. If you prefer to stay in the city centre, then try the incredibly popular Fumo; their stunning Italian food has been attracting celebrities since they first opened. Adams on Waterloo Street has often been voted as the best restaurant in Birmingham. This Michelin star restaurant offers contemporary fine dining with a somewhat eclectic twist.

Entertainment

If live music is your thing, then make sure that the O2 Institute is on your list. Considered to be one of the top live music venues in the UK. The original building opened in 1908 and for the last 30 years the O2 Institute has been host to some very big names including Pink Floyd and the Arctic Monkeys. Birmingham is also home to the famous Everyman Theatre, the Birmingham Hippodrome and the Birmingham Symphony Hall, which offer a diverse range of entertainments.
