Birmingham is the principal city of England`s West Midlands region, and is the United Kingdom`s second most populous city. Birmingham was the birthplace of the Industrial Revolution, and by the dawn of the nineteenth century it was perhaps the most industrialized city in the entire world. Heavily damaged during the Blitz of World War II, many portions of the city were rebuilt. The regeneration of the urban core can be seen in some noteworthy postmodern buildings, such as the Library of Birmingham and the iconic Selfridges Building. Birmingham, like other Midlands cities, is known for its canals, and adjacent to the canals you can sample an eclectic mix of restaurants and cafés.
