British Isles Friday logoWelcome to British Isles Friday! British Isles Friday is a weekly event for sharing all things British — reviews, photos, opinions, trip reports, guides, links, resources, personal stories, interviews, and research posts. Join us each Friday to link your British-themed content and to see what others have to share. The link list is at the bottom of this post. Pour a cup of tea or lift a pint and join our link party!

At this rate, it’s going to take a very long time to finish recapping my trip! It’s fun reliving a little of it each week.

We spent 4 days and 5 nights in Bath. On our 5th full day, we took a train from Bath to Birmingham.

Sandwiches on the train

We felt like we were having a very English experience with the Sunday Times and sandwiches from Marks & Spencers on the train.

In Birmingham, we stayed in The Rotunda, an iconic building from the 60s that has been converted into apartments. The top few floors, the apartments are available for hotel stays.

Band in Birmingham

Birmingham greeted us with a band. We heard lots of street music during our stay. This was a good location for it.

    • We missed Cadbury, but that would have been fun! The sandwiches were surprisingly good for pre-packaged food. In general, we found convenience foods fresher and tastier in England than here.
