Kalsoom Begum, Ops Manager at Great Barr Premier Inn says:
“For shopping I’d head for the Bullring. It’s best if you’re looking for something special. There are events and product sampling. There’s big department stores and a great gelato place on the ground floor”.
One of the largest shopping centres in the UK, the Bullring dominates the city centre with its iconic Selfridge building, inspired by a Paco Rabanne sequinned dress. Step inside and you’ll find its 160 stylish stores, 2000 leading brands and 37 eateries make it Birmingham’s go-to shopping destination.
Want to indulge in a bit of retail therapy? Well, you’ve come to the right place! With designer fashions, aspirational homeware, chic bars and restaurants, sumptuous salons, and not to mention a spa, the Mailbox is perfect for label lovers who want a bit of rest and relaxation thrown in the bag.
From extravagant earrings to bespoke bracelets, almost half of the UK’s jewellery is hand crafted in Birmingham. So whether you’re looking for a gift for that special someone or just treating yourself, you’ll find something to catch your eye in the unique Jewellery Quarter.
A collection of beautifully restored Victorian factories on the riverside is home to the Custard Factory. This buzzing creative, digital and media quarter offers independent shops, hair and beauty salons, cafés, bars and a cinema/theatre.
