CITY GUIDE BIRMINGHAM: A Day Out in Birmingham with KOMPAS


KOMPAS had been active in London for many months now, but did you know that we are also live in other UK cities, like Exeter, Liverpool, and Birmingham?

Urban Cafe

Start the day off with a wholesome breakfast! Urban Cafe is the perfect spot with veggie options available or a fresh pick-me-up smoothie. And their chunky cakes won’t leave you feeling hungry!

Street Art Walk

Explore Birmingham’s vibrant street art scene with a walk around Digbeth, checking out some of the city’s most famous murals. Here are a couple of our favourites that you shouldn’t miss.

Bromley Street Philth Mural

At the corner of Hack Street and Bromley Street is an Egyptian inspired piece by Philth (Phil Blake), whose work is known for combining elements of science, the supernatural, symbolism, Victoriana and Art Nouveau.

Muhammad Ali by Akse

The French graffiti artist Akse has been spraypainting murals since 1992. This hyper-realistic portrait pays tribute to the late boxer and activist, Muhammad Ali.

For dinner, check out Wilderness, a theatrical restaurant with preserved moss on the walls, leafy canopies and a creative menu. Expect to eat all sorts of weird and wonderful dishes, from ants to scallops served under embers, and edible plants.
