The Jewellery Quarter
This city is not second best
"Birmingham has a great feel to it. There are loads of cool things to see and do, there is a vibrant community and the people are lovely. We Love Brum."
Birmingham is hot right now. Businesses, small and very large, are flocking here, creative types are generating a buzz and independent shops, cafes and bars are on every corner. There are more Michelin stars than any other city outside of London and the mighty balti is brilliant. We Love Brum.
We also love a little fact so... Birmingham minister Joseph Priestley discovered oxygen in 1774. I suppose the city helping people breathe fresh clean air by having 571 parks totalling over 3,500 hectares of public open space (more than any other European city) and having the largest urban nature reserve in Europe is a pretty fitting tribute to the Mr Priestley. Ahhhh breathe!
Birmingham is enjoying a renaissance and it is easy to see why. There is a great feel to the city, employment is up, Grand Central Station is open and full of shoppers and commuters, the new Metro is nearly fully running and the place is alive with the sound of excitement. We Love Brum.
- Closest village/town: The Jewellery Quarter has a great neighbourhood feel
- Stores: The Bullring & The Mailbox will do some damage to your credit card
- Supermarket: Forget traditional, head to China Town for some great food
- Pubs: A pint at The Queens Head and cocktails at The Downstairs bar (opening v. soon)
- Walks: Along the beautiful canals
The Jewellery Quarter is surrounded by historic buildings harking back to an industrial age, there is a neighbourhood feel and a special atmosphere.
Mrs Clarke loves the hip new coffee shop The Upstairs Coffee House on Water Street. It is the place to sip on a flat white and chat to achingly cool locals. The new bar downstairs opens soon, so watch this space. You will find Mr Clarke at The Dropped Forge or The Jewellers Arms.
We love the Jewellery Quarter for it's independent vibe and community feel. The 8ft Grocer on Caroline Street is open from early until late and Chris provides an excellent selection of locally sourced produce. St Paul's Square is a great open space , we'd recommend a visit to the creepy catacoombs!
The location of The Jewellery Quarter makes access to the CBD and City Centre quick and easy, with a short walk over the flyover (and a stop at Urban Coffee on Church Street). Conollys and Loki provide a plethora of wine selections and La Cuciana Rustica on Ludgate Hill just up the road serves the best Italian in town (in Mrs C's opinion).
The great thing about the area is that it is continuing to grow. The opportunities for businesses and homeowners to thrive is ever growing. The area is well connected for commuting, but also enables a work life balance.
