Make the most of your trip

For the first time, CYBERUK is coming to the West Midlands.

The region has a plethora of historical and modern sites to explore. From Europe's largest library to the likes of Cadbury World and Edgbaston Cricket Ground, there is something for everyone in this culturally-rich part of the UK.

Birmingham specifically is hailed as the birthplace of heavy metal, and is a key destination for Black Sabbath and Judas Priest fans. It is home to the iconic Birmingham Bull, the visual emblem of CYBERUK 2024.

Read on to discover just some of the sights and activities to explore during your stay.
