I am a passionate NFL fan, my wife is not. It is my goal to attend games at as many of the NFL teams stadiums as i can. Through Sports Travel Tours we have been able to find a unique balance on our NFL trips to America where we are both happy with our itinerary. Dont let the name fool you, as excellent as they are at the sporting side, they have also arranged trips to a Louisiana Swamp , Quad Bike Riding ,a longhorn cattle drive and a rodeo amongst other trips for us.This allows us to strike a nice balance for my wife and is a great contrast to the NFL. I first used the company for Super Bowl 47 and i was so impressed we have been back to the states a further 3 times since with them. We have also done a couple of multi city sporting tours with the company, including one where we travelled by train. Again this provides a nice contrast from the traditional visit and stay in one city vacation. The NFL games we have attended have always had excellent seats, as soon as the NFL fixtures are released i will call Andrew and have a chat about where we are thinking of going, we go over a number of locations and method of transport and then over a period of a few weeks i will decide on a location and Andrew will give me a price. If you are going to use Sports Travel Tours, give Andrew a call as your starting point, it is time well spent! In addition to the NFL, Sports Travel Tours have also arranged NHL and NBA fixtures for us, again we have always had excellent seats and sound advice for enjoying the full sporting experience. To give you some idea of our experience with Sports Travel Tours, we have seen the following sporting teams at home, plus Super Bowl 47! NFL -Dallas, Washington, Baltimore, Philadelphia, Oakland, San Francisco, San Diego. NHL - Dallas, Washington NBA- Dallas, Golden State We would have done more NHL/NBA but we are restricted by my wife's holiday periods as to when we can get away. We cannot speak highly enough of Andrew Hill and Sports Travel Tours, i am already looking forward to the release of the NFL fixtures in April and making those calls to sort out this years trip. Since posting this i have had another US Sports trip with the company. We saw Chicago Bears,Bulls & Blackhawks as well as a tour of Soldier Field, then took a train to Minneapolis where we saw Vikings and Wild, as well as a tour of the brand new US Bank Stadium. The personal knowledge Andrew provided was once again spot on and we had an amazing trip, we even saw the Bears win on my birthday!

We have used Sports Travel Tours on several occasions to go to NFL games and have had an excellent time on each occasion. Their expert knowledge has made the holidays go smoothly, and they have tailored the holidays to our requests every time. Their experience has proved invaluable - we were persuaded to stay in a hotel not in the centre of Chicago, but nearer the stadium, and were very grateful as we then did not have to wait for a bus after the game on a very very cold January Monday night, but could take a short walk back to our hotel. We have had a couple of problems, not of their making (one involving a hurricane!), and they have sorted them efficiently and quickly and made sure we got to the games. We are very fussy about who we use for our holidays, but we keep going back to Sports Travel Tours because they have always served us well and we have had many brilliant real NFL experiences because of them.

Hajj Packages

558A Coventry Rd, Birmingham B10 0UN, UK – 07800 592508

BEST GROUP EVER This is the best group ever. We recently came back from Hajj with my mum dad and sister. I am 12 years old. The Hijaz group organisers always ensured we were well cared for, and remained happy throughout our journey. May Allah (SWT) reward them especially Tufayel Sasa. Both the hotels in Makkah and Madinah were well thought out and comfortable stays, Alhamdullilah. We learnt so much from the seminars with the Sheikh which made us constantly think, reflect and understand what the spiritual journey of hajj is really about. Hajj is a once in a lifetime opportunity so why not go with the best, in terms of friendly staff, suitable accommodations and a deeply memorable experience. Abu-Ayub Ansari –

What a great way to spent you holiday or just a day out. A tour of a hour on the water with good explanation. We recommend it to everyone.

I could see this place from the flat in liberty place. Probably prettier in the summer.

Boat Trips & Excursions - if available

Away2canal

The Waters​​​ Edge, Birmingham, Brindleyplace B1 2JB, UK – 0121 647 7151

I went there in late December, night time. In my opinion, there's nothing special about the canal. And the restaurants there were kinda pricey. So we only stop by for a good 30 minutes and go to other places instead.

Loved it. Awesome. Relaxing. Enjoyable

Bosworth Cruises

The waters Edge, Brindley Place, Birmingham B1 2JB, UK – 07999 555041

You seriously won't find a more accommodating and friendly team than the guys at Bosworth cruises! The boat is fantastic, perfect for private parties. We were able to hook our music up the boats speakers and play it as loud as we liked, it is also a "bring your own booze" set up so we could take on any drinks we wanted and set them up in the bar area. The route we were taken on was lovely, and it was amazing watching the sun set as we danced for a few hours on the boat. We initially hired the boat for 2 hours and when we asked if it was possible to tag an extra hour onto the end of it the guys were happy to extend the party for us! We were also able to come aboard an hour earlier to decorate the boat and set everything up. I can't recommend this company enough, I will definitely book with them again. You wont be disappointed if you use this company. Thanks for a great night!

Great experience and experimented staff. Very good storyteller and information sharing. A walk on the Birmingham history path, or better said ”canal”. Should be on everyone's list "to do" in Birmingham. Thanks Bosworth Cruises. Only Cool Stuff!

Trailfinders Birmingham

22 The Priory Queensway, Birmingham B4 6BS, UK – 0121 236 1234

Great information and help planning a trip to visit relatives in America and Canada. Donna was very friendly and helpful. Thank you for taking the stress out of the planning for this trip.

Local Parks & Gardens

Birmingham City Council Parks

Mosely Queensbridge Road Depot, Birmingham Area, Birmingham B13 8QB, UK – 0121 303 1111

The Parks Department at King's Heath Park provided the flowers, including floral displays, beautiful bouquets , and button holes for our daughters wedding and the service was absolutely wonderful. The flowers were breath taking and exactly what our daughter had wanted. Such friendly, knowledgeable and all round excellent service was refreshing and welcome.

It's OK but more should be done for the children

Moseley Park and Pool

93B Alcester Rd, Birmingham B13 8DD, UK – 0121 442 4499

An excellent park to walk around. The fishing pool is a private pool to members only, stocked with a large amount of healthy fish. Sadly there's only one swing for children

Always the festival I look forward to every year. Fantastic park and great people.

Great website!. Click below to find gardens open during the year around Birmingham or West Midlands. There are photos and lots of detail about the garden.
Birmingham Back to Back

50-54 Inge St, Birmingham B5 4TE, UK – 0121 666 7671

Excellent tour for those who like social history. Our guide made the families who lived there very real. Tour goes over three houses and different era s and lifestyles. There are several flights of steep narrow stairs to negotiate. Don't attempt of you have mobility issues. Booking is also essential but we got in with only two days notice. Thoroughly recommended.

Really interesting place to visit if you like vintage, retro and historical places. Visit the houses of bygone decades and see how the people of Birmingham lived. Step back in time. Our guide Eric was fantastic. Tour lasted 1.45hr for £9. Well worth it. Some flights of stairs. Easy to find. City centre location. Book ahead.

Winterbourne House & Garden

58 Edgbaston Park Rd, Birmingham B15 2RT, UK – 0121 414 3003

The house is great as you can go into each room rather than just look from behind a rope. The gardens are especially beautiful. The cafe looks good but we didn’t go in.

This place is extremely beautiful. Who cares about the Bull Ring when you can go here? I would recommend spending about 4-5 hours here, and getting tea and cake (there are vegan options too). The ticket is very reasonable, and the garden is huge.
