Ashes City Guide: Birmingham
It’s the first Ashes series since 2019 and we want to make sure we’re celebrating it with a bang! A warm and hot summer is on the cards. The Ashes is a celebration of cricket and we can’t wait for it to begin, no matter which series the test is in!
With that, we’ve put together a guide of pubs and bars for Ashes fans to enjoy in each of the test cities. We’re starting with Birmingham – where The Ashes begins for the First Test!
Walkabout Birmingham is the Barmy Army HQ and it’s also closest to the station! As its the Barmy Army fan base, expect it to be lively throughout the course of the test. A great atmosphere, it’s the place to be if you’re in Birmingham. Make sure you head to Walkabout every night after the action for the after party!
Not only that, Walkabout is playing host to the Ultimate Ashes Party on June 16th – click here to buy!
Of course, The Ashes isn’t JUST about drinking and partying, especially for those with young families. We do have a solution! The Brasshouse in Birmingham does an excellent array of food. If you’re wanting to take the family somewhere before or after the match, then here’s the place to be. A more chilled vibe for The Ashes.
A classic old school pub, the Twelfth Man is the place to be for some pre drinks right by the ground. A big beer garden and right next to the ground, be sure to pop in and have a swift drink or too before or after the day’s cricket. Be aware though, they don’t serve food.
It’s not just Birmingham we’re looking out for – we’ve got you a city guide for all of the tests. As The Ashes won’t be here again for another 4 years, we need to make sure that you’re sorted and have nothing to think about. Drink, party, eat and celebrate! Have a look below at our other cities.
