For a city of that size, the skyline isn't that impressive... however it is typical for a european cities... since they aren't too skyscraper material... besides Frankfurt.

I give it a 6.5

i like the sky;ine of my fair city. i believe with London and other cities that alot of the buildings look the same. In Brum (nickname for Birmingham) they are quite the opposite.

A drab, dreary, boring skyline. It looks shoddy and old-fashioned. I'm glad to hear that ugly 1960s skyscrapers are being demolished and that there are plans for new skyscrapers. 3/10.

Sorry if my comments offend any forumers from Birmingham, but that's my honest opinion. The other thing to remember is that this is only a rating of the skyline. While the skyline is unimpressive, Birmingham may well be impressive in other departments.

Although the view from that observatory was pretty sweet, the skyline really has no facal point, is not very dense, and is too short. There is, however, a nice variety of building styles. I give it a 6/10.

8.5/10, it may be somewhat lacking for a city with nearly a million residents, but I really do like it. I really like how the all the buildings are on that one main thoroughfare, all organized. They may be short, but all the buildings are attractive in my opinion. Currently, it's a very neat skyline with lovely little buildings and it still has immense potential. I'd love to visit Birmingham after I stop at my current favorite, Hong Kong. Power to Brum!

4.5
Still pretty small for what is supposed to be the UK's second city... what is wrong with this country? Why, despite living on a densely populated island, are we incapable of building upwards?? Is it something psychological?

Although it's pretty dense it looks like one big wall of 70 - 100 meter towers. And it needs a bit color, it's so grey.

Please, does anyone have some real big shots, 800x600 or something. Don't they have quality camera's in England . I won't vote till I've seen a real big shot of the centre.
