Birmingham Museum & Art Gallery

Escape Live Peaky Blinders

Being the setting for the incredibly popular TV series, Peaky Blinders, it makes sense that Birmingham would be home to a Peaky Blinders escape room. You can play the game with between 2 and 6 people and you must work against the clock to try and escape by solving puzzles. The experience lasts for 60 minutes once the door locks. It’s a great way to pass an hour if you’re travelling in a group.

Best time of the year to visit Birmingham

If you want to visit Birmingham when it’s most likely to be sunny, then mid-June to mid-September would be the best time, with highs of around 21°.

Interestingly Birmingham has peak tourist months outside of the usual summer period, with October and January being two of the busiest months for tourism. This being the case, if you want to avoid crowds and spend less on travel and accommodation then spring would be the best time to visit.
