I've lived here now for nearly four years...
and I've found that many people have a very mis-concieved perception of Birmingham UK as ac city and its people, especially the 'infamous Brummie accent'.
The truth about this vibrant city is very different.
Within the past few months it has been named as a TOP destination in the world to visit.
Forget the things you have heard that have put you off visiting and come see for yourself..
