Walking Tours, Birmingham: 4 reviews and 4 photos

  Join President Clinton in your imagination
by Galahad

Favorite thing: Continue walking across Victoria Square and into what appears to be the building to the left of the Central Library. Continue on in the same direction for 2/3 minutes in front of Birmingham Repertory Theatre and across an area called Centenary Square and into the ICC building. Once inside during the daytime you can look inside the celebrated Symphony Hall, home of the CBSO, the City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra. Twice a month, starting in November 2000, there are guided tours around Symphony Hall.

Fondest memory: Continuing on in the same direction through the ICC building and out into the canal area. We went on into the area around Brindley Place on the opposite side of the canal. Going on a boat trip from Brindley Place around Sherbourne Street Wharf, Cambrian Wharf and Gas Street Basin. From the boat we could see the balcony of the pub (called The Malt House) where President Clinton had his famous pint and pie and photo during the G7 meeting when it was held in Birmingham in 1998.
