Outer City Circle - Clockwise on the 11C.
The other day we were looking for a way to explore some parts of Birmingham that we hadn't seen yet and we found a bus that goes around in a circle around the areas outside of city centre. The plan was to ride the bus and then get off when we saw something we wanted to see. The 11C bus goes clockwise around the city and the 11A goes "anticlockwise". (That's how they say counterclockwise in the UK)
Luckily we got the front seat on the top of the double decker which was perfect for taking some pictures.
We went past the prison which I wish we got a picture of but maybe next time. It took us a second to figure out what it was. which is why we didn't get a picture of it. It just said HMP.
People were getting pretty rowdy on this bus. There were fights breaking out between women with strollers, kids were smoking on the upper deck, people were yelling at each other and at one point a kid got on the bus blasting his stereo full blast which was pretty funny since people kept shouting at him to turn it off and he would not listen.
Lamborghini, right? Seemed very out of place in this neighbourhood. People just park their cars wherever they feel like it in England. Wrong side of the road facing oncoming traffic, only partially pulled over? No biggie.
We didn't really see a need to stop for anything on this bus trip until we saw this park near Moseley called Swanhurst Park. It was the highlight of the 11C bus route so far.
