Birmingham's Symphony Hall, half an hour from the hotel, is considered one of the finest in the world. Using innovative acoustic techniques, the 6,000-pipe organ reverberates beautifully around a cavernous auditorium that comfortably seats over 2,000 people. A first-rate classical programme is complemented by well-attended jazz, rock and dance performances, alongside a host of community events.

When you take a factory tour, you can watch every stage of the assembly – from sheet metal to finished car – as legions of futuristic robots work alongside skilled Jaguar technicians on the production line.
