We went to Birmingham on the train today, for Guy's birthday day out. It has become a bit of a tradition in the last few years. First, we have a drink at The Crown, near New Street Station.
I'm basing the ground floor of my dollshouse pub on The Crown's Edwardian bar.

Lunch has to be at the China Court, in Birmingham's Chinatown, for their excellent dim sum dumplings and won ton soup -
The German Christmas Market is open now -
This year's Christmas lights are blue and white - stunning.
