As the second-most populous city in the UK outside of London, Birmingham has a lot to offer to to residents and visitors alike. This cosmopolitan city is known for its diversity, with migrants from all over the globe making their home here. Attracting people from even the farthest corners of the world, Birmingham is an exciting place to live, with many cultures living side by side harmoniously. Thanks to a growing community from Jamaica, Haiti, the Dominican Republic and Trinidad, the Caribbean restaurants in Birmingham are as authentic as they come. At the Birmingham International Carnival, a festival celebrating the culture and food of Afro-Caribbean peoples, you can also sample tasty foods from Birmingham’s Caribbean restaurants while learning more about the cultures of the West Indies. Whether at a festival or in a restaurant, Caribbean food is an absolute must-try.
