Like many British cities, Birmingham started out as a small market town. By the 16th century, the city's metal workers gained national reputation for producing excellent knives and tools. At this time Birmingham was manufacturing arms and supplying swords to the Parliamentarian side during the Civil War.

Soon Birmingham's proximity to vast coal and iron deposits, together with the industrial revolution, quickly turned it into a centre for trade and industry. Birmingham became known as the 'city of a thousand trades', because of its vast diversity of manufacturing capabilities and expertise. In fact, Birmingham still retains its diverse excellence in manufacturing to this day, with factories producing cars, jewellery and chocolate.

The industrial boom also brought many workers and many improvements were made to the city to house the growing population and meet the needs of industry. A massive system of canals was built to cope with traffic and the city's boundaries were enlarged to make it the second largest city in England. However, many of the beautiful buildings built during this time were destroyed by heavy bombing during WW II.

Although infamous for its ugly, concrete post-war rebuilding effort, Birmingham has come a long way. It has become a very successful conference city, boasting three state-of-the-art venues: The National Exhibition Centre, International Convention Centre and National Indoor Arena. The city has also spent large amounts of money redeveloping and restoring the canal area, which is now a favourite among locals and visitors alike.
