It’s being desperately compared to making a pilgrimage to Abbey Road – that’s right all the cool kids are doing a selfie* over at James Turner Street. Wait that doesn’t makes sense. The Abbey Road photo you want to take isn’t a selfie by a road sign, it’s a photo of you crossing the road in an homage to the famous record cover. You want to recreate the moment and touch the magic.
Ahead of the influx of Benefits Street tourists expected to flock to Birmingham to be near their heroes we’ve pulled together an alternative list of Birmingham selfie spots where you can recreate some magic moments.
Holiday Inn, Smallbrook Queensway
Kick back like Clint.
Malt House, Brindley Place
Have a pint and acknowledge the crowds. BONUS: you get to have a pint.
Birmingham Museum & Art Gallery
This time next year we’ll be millionaires.
Odeon Service Alley, New Street
Graft like Bob.
Suffolk Street Queensway
Point that thing away from the Alpha Tower.
All photos ripped off from the Internet. Sorry. If one is yours and you don’t like it being used please let us know x

* We bet they’re just photos mostly, and not selfies. You can’t do the Abbey Road photo as a selfie unless you use a tripod.
