And you think it is I who is obsessed with you?

Pleased to see the shirt theme is still going. It has certainly exceeded my expectations.

Pretend I’m a tourist. Where do you suggest I go and visit?

The back to back project - my mates dad owned the tailors. It’s a fine example of how the working class folk used to live.
The Birmingham museum and art gallery
The Barber institute 
The Ikon Gallery
Soho house museum 
You could eat at one of the Michelin starred restaurants or if you fancy going cheap you could go and get a curry in the Balti triangle (where the dish was invented)
Sarhole mill or the towers in Edgbaston for Tolkien fans 
Sutton Park
The lickey hills 
The jewellery quarter
That’s just what I can think off the top of my head,sure there is far more if you bother to look.

The Botanical Gardens
Grand Central 
Mail Box
The Cube
The Birmingham Library
The Town Hall
Chamberlain Square
Centenary Square
Symphony Hall
China Quarter
Millenium Point 
St Phillips Cathedral

From someone who rarely goes into town now, that seems a good summary. Brum is a city where a tourist can have a decent weekend, which was probably not the case 20 or 30 years ago. I went to Brum Poly 86-89 and I usually meet up with some of my old mates once a year and the general opinion is that it has improved hugely since then. Obviously it's not in the same league as London and Edinburgh but I reckon it gives most other cities in the UK a run for its money. Oxford, Cambridge, Durham, York and Bath are prettier; Liverpool and Bristol probably have more history. Anywhere else better though?

Stratford upon Avon?

Not a city Wink . I'd also suggest you'd find it a boring weekend if you're not into Shakespeare.

There's really not much to do in Stratford. Warwick and Leamington are much better, there's significantly more to do in Birmingham, Rugby, Solihull and Coventry and Henley-in-Arden and Alcester are significantly prettier.
