What to expect in Belfast

You might get a surprise when you hit the cash machine: Northern Ireland has its own bank notes which are more colourful and vibrant than their English counterparts. While the notes can be spent throughout the UK, you might have some trouble getting rid of them once you return to Birmingham. It's a good idea to either hit the cash machine before jumping on the flight to Belfast, or only take out enough money to last the duration of your trip. Prices are fairly similar to those in Birmingham.
