You always know your hometown best, or so I though until I moved away for a couple of years. When I returned the old places I grew up with seemed smaller and were being replaced by bright shiney and new. It's happening all over town. The regeneration process of Birmingham is in full swing and slowly but surely the city is transforming from an industrial relic into a powerhouse of fashion, art and culture. Whether its the kitch quiet pubs that have been around for a hundred years, or the new superclub in the Arcadian, Birmingham is a hell of a place to party and with more canals than Venice a beautiful place to relax as well.
