This looks like a very interesting memorial to those who fought in the war. Couldn’t get close today due to construction work. Next time

The area around this building (Centenary Square) is currently being redveloped so you cannot get near this building nor get inside it. This work will carry on till summer 2019 when the Hall of Memory will reopen.

Good to visit the Hall of Memory as part of a general tour of Birmingham City Centre (visit the museum and the Cathedral/Pigeon park too). Probably only a 20 minute visit but is a very beautiful building with excellent sculptures outside. Venturing in, it is...More
