Not too far from the Thinktank Birmingham Science Museum and the National Sea Life Centre, the Bullring Shopping Centre is surrounded by historic sites, landmarks and large markets. It consists of two main buildings – the East and West Mall – and both buildings sit comfortably underneath a 7000m2 glass roof, known as the SkyPlane, which appears to have no visible support.
Throughout the centre, there are a number of interesting artworks, including sculptures such as ‘The Bull’, many of which are photographic attractions.One of the UK’s oldest shoe retailers, Clarks has been offering shoes for men, women, girls and boys since 1925. Selling all types of shoes from trainers to smart loafers, Clarks is known for its high quality.
Housing one of only four Selfridges in the UK, the 4th largest Debenhams and John Lewis, there are over 200 shops to shop from.
When you’re fed up of shopping, you can settle down at one of the many cafes, coffee shops, restaurants or bars, or just grab something on the go in the centre’s concession stands – like bubble tea or frozen yogurt from Mee Cha.Are your children tired of you dragging them around the shops? Then take them to Build-a-Bear on the lower ground. Here they can build their own personalised furry friend, choosing their name, giving it a heart and lastly picking out an outfit. They even provide parties which you can ask in store about.
