Passed through on another trip to Brum. Not my favourite place as the “vibe” is young and is not my cup of tea. There are places to eat and drink so plenty to do. It is ok and particularly for those on a night out.

Great to have a walk round, plenty to see and do. Spoilt for choice for restaurants. amazing to see people drinking on bar stools outside the public houses on a cold winters night in December. I would definatly go back when in birmingham next.
