On Friday I'm going to Birmingham (Sutton Coldfield) for three months (until early may) for an engineering internship. What should I know? What's the Birmingham area known for amongst Britons? What should I absolutely not miss in my down time? What social norms (at work or otherwise) might be unusual to me? What do locals do for fun? What parts of the city should I wander around in to get a sense of the place (and in which areas would doing so get me killed or served with an anti-social order)? [more inside]

We want to find somewhere we can regularly visit, that is accessible from Birmingham by public transport (up to 3 hours) and not too expensive. Seaside would be the best option. A guesthouse or perhaps a caravan site. Where can we easily get to in that timescale? [more inside]

We're driving my partner's daughter to start University next Saturday (16th) in Birmingham (UK). She'll wan't us to vamoose quickly but we've never been to the city before and don't want to drive the long journey back to the South Coast straightaway. So Second City MeFites - where do we go in the afternoon (we like arts and crafts)? Where do we eat in the evening (not outrageously expensive)? where do we book to stay (ditto)? Thank you
