Around King Edwards Wharf
Canals, Cafes and Concerts
Birmingham. The vibrant hub of culture, art and independent businesses. Home to four Michelin Star restaurants, a RIBA Stirling Prize nominated library, the inspirational ‘City of Colours’ street-art festival and a wealth of truly incredible people and hidden spaces. We Love Brum.
Two minutes away from KEW is Brindley Place. Set amongst the canals, Brindley Place is home to great restaurants and bars. During the week Brindley is the Place to do business. On evenings and weekends there are great bars and restaurants. Mrs Clarke adores Edmunds. Bannatyne Health Club, The 5 star health club, has canalside gym, pool and spa. Just the ticket to burn off the excess.
The great thing about KEW is that you are in a quiet enclave of Birmingham but you can be at New Street, Victoria Square, The Mailbox or The Jewellery Quarter in minutes by foot or by cab.
Did you know… there are 8,000 acres of open spaces, and Birmingham recently took 53rd spot in the Mercer Quality of Living rankings, beating Rome, Hong Kong and Philadelphia.
For retail therapy Mrs Clarke heads to Selfridges, Harvey Nics & John Lewis. Followed by some boutique treats along one of the three arcades in the city.
Mrs Clarke loves. Simpsons restaurant. The brightest jewels in Birmingham’s rather large culinary crown and the city’s longest-standing holder of the ever-coveted Michelin Star
Culture Vulture? Head to the beating heart of contemporary art in Birmingham, The Ikon. The striking neo-gothic building in Brindleyplace is our favourite romantic spot.
Don’t like shopping or art? Edgbaston Cricket Club, Pure Bar and gig venues are more Mr C.
