  • Why live in the City Centre Core?

    Birmingham is England’s second city and one of the biggest second cities in Europe. It has a diverse culture, with a population made up of people from all over the world. With luxury residential areas popping up in New Street, Swallow Street, and the Rotunda, there is an apartment you’ll be sure to fall in love with.

  • What’s been happening lately?

    In recent years Birmingham’s largest train station, Birmingham New Street, saw a major redevelopment. The Pallasades – a shopping centre above the train station – also went under a major overhaul. Now renamed Grand Central, it boasts a collection of shops, including a brand new John Lewis department store. Grand Central is also home to restaurants such as Pho, Tapas Revolution, Carluccio’s and prosecco bar, Frizzenti, which is famed for serving prosecco on tap.

     

  • City CentreCore  Attraction

    Birmingham’s biggest shopping destination is undeniably Bullring Shopping Centre. Dating all the way back to 1154, it was originally used by local landowner Peter De Birmingham to hold a grocery market. The original indoor Bullring market was demolished in 2000 to pave the way for the new Bullring which opened in September 2003. Selfridges itself cost £60 million to build – designed by architect Laing O’Rourke, it has won 8 awards overall. You are sure to find all major high street stores at Bullring, including a large Debenhams, as well as a number of independent retailers.
    The Birmingham Museum and Art Gallery is another of Birmingham’s landmarks. Situated in the very heart of the city in Chamberlain Square, the Museum and Art Gallery is great for visitors of all ages. Another added bonus is that it is free entry (except a few exhibitions) with the affordable Edwardian Tearooms located inside, meaning it is not an afternoon out that will break the bank.
