  • Why Live in Jewellery Quarter?

    Once the centre of the UK’s jewellery making sector, this area is now much more than just the place to buy diamonds and high-end designer watches.

    This historic part of the city has in recent years become a fairly hip and trendy place to live. And as it is still classed as up and coming, there are plenty of relatively affordable places to rent or buy.

    The area dates back more than 250 years and is a designated conservation area that boasts the only Georgian square in the city, St Paul’s Square, the centre of which is St Paul’s Church, a Grade I listed building known as the Jewellers’ Church.

     

  • What’s been happening lately?

    An area of more than 200 listed buildings, it has undergone a transformation over the past ten years, becoming a place where you not only work, but where you also live and play.

    And it’s hard to miss all the residential development work that has been going on in the Quarter, with restorations of former factories and new builds adding further lustre to the area.

    These include the £14.5 million Badge Works opened in 2014, creating a series of townhouses and apartments in Tenby Street; Kettle Works in Icknield Street, which will be a complex with 550 apartments; and the second phase of The Quarter in Warstone Lane was bought by Delph Properties for £16 million.

    Popular with single professionals and couples, it’s also attracting families who want to take advantage of a villagey feel in the city centre.

     

  • Jewellery Quarter Attractions

    Tina Francis, a tapestry maker who has lived and worked in the heart of the Jewellery Quarter for the past two years, said she enjoyed the city living with a community feel.

    “Living in an area where making happens is important to me,” she said.

    Before returning to Birmingham, she lived in Brighton, where she ran the Central Trail for Artists Open Houses, a festival that takes place every May.

    Last year, she organised the first Jewellery Quarter Open Studios with the support of Jewellery Quarter BID [Business Improvement District], which saw more than open studios, workshops, heritage venues and a brewery open up for a weekend.
