To celebrate the launch of Gaydio on DAB in loads of new cities across the UK, Paris & Dave took Gaydio Breakfast on tour to the UK's second city Birmingham to check out everything that LGBTQ+ people can get up to in the UK's second city, whilst staying at the Hilton Birmingham Metropole.

The recently refurbished Hilton Birmingham Metropole brings unique offerings to illuminate your stay in Birmingham. Located on the N.E.C complex and just minutes away from major motorway networks, the hotel is decorated in soothing tones with bedrooms furnished in décor with a subtle nod to the identity of Birmingham. Featuring the latest in technology, including Digital Key, which enables you to access your room without checking in, the hotel’s inviting swimming pool and nearby entertainment and shopping complex Resorts World, make this hotel the ultimate leisure destination. Enjoy dining at the hotel’s Brightsmith restaurant which uses local produce and quality ingredients at the heart of its offering to show off Birmingham’s exciting and emerging food culture. Serving a variety of delicious dishes and a creative cocktail offering, Brightsmith also features a terrace that overlooks the beautiful Pendigo Lake, perfect for seeing in those soon coming sunnier evenings.
