5 Better Birmingham Tourist Selfies

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.

Clint Chillaxes

Malt House, Brindley Place

Have a pint and acknowledge the crowds. BONUS: you get to have a pint.

They blew up the glass afterwards etc.

Birmingham Museum & Art Gallery

This time next year we’ll be millionaires.

Get your coat we are LEAVING

Odeon Service Alley, New Street

Graft like Bob.

One good thing about Birmingham, when it hits you feel no pain

Suffolk Street Queensway

Point that thing away from the Alpha Tower.

Use your selfie to fight the power

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

With thanks to @nebolland and @aj_ay_it

* 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.
