    Range of shops.
    Bullring is a really decent shopping centre. Variety of clothing shops, cafes, geral stores etc. Surrounded by restaurants. However has a problem with obnoxious, rude or downright offense street preachers. Also plenty of people trying to sell you things in the street.

    Great emporium
    Impressively one of the largest centres in the country, it has copiously something for almost everyone. Multitudes of retail are here for browsing within and buying from. A fine selection of eateries open their doors. Some outside taking advantage of the grand pleasant weather.

    Shopping Mecca
    For a long time the centre of Birmingham was an eyesore and over recent years it has been revitalised. As a result we have the new and improved Bullring shopping centre which has three levels of shops for you to enjoy. It is linked to Grand Central which is above Birmingham New Street railway station and has lots of places to eat depending on what your taste palate is. There are also places to sit and have a drink, both alcoholic and non-alcoholic. It's a great area to spend some time shopping and having something to eat afterwards.

    A struggling Birmingham
    We had an enjoyable day out, however, I can't help but realise that Birmingham is really struggling to survive, like any city/town in our country. The restaurants and coffee shops were plentiful and where we visited were good, however, there just isn't enough big shops to visit. And going into the House of Fraser was like visiting a relation to say goodbye for the last time. Also, the number of homeless on the streets was very upsetting. The results of a recession and online shopping are starting to show more than ever.

    The Bull Ring 2023
    Wow the last time I was here The Bull Ring was a glorified indoor market in the 80’s. Today it’s a upmarket mall that is among the best in Europe and Nirth America, I was amazed. Birmingham has changed for the better.

    Shiny and roaring
    I am not a shopping fan so I didn´t spend too much time indoor but enjoyed walking around, watching the busy life and admiring shiny modern buildings and the tower of St. Martin´s church just next to them. The place is light, spacy and clean. It can be very busy in the rush hours but I never felt it overcrowded.

Very good place for shopping.
A lot of space. Many different shops. Big and nice Selfridges. Toilets mostly clean. Better in part with more expensive shops ;)
Of course the Bull is one of touristic places:)

Britannia, Birmingham Grand Central Car Park - be aware Most evening there are gangs of youths loitering around of an evening, but last night must be the worst. They had set off all the fire extinguishers in the lifts, stairwell, and lift lobbies. One lift was broken the second lift me and other passengers got in 3 of the gang was in the lift but as I was with my husband and other passengers felt OK. However somehow the gang had managed to interrupt the lift and it stop a few times mid floors it was quite scary and like something out of a film. When we got to the 3rd floor we managed to get out. We walked the rest of the floor to 9. As they had set the fire extinguisher off you could see or breath properly. On the way out of the car park I spoke to two of the security guards to let them know what had happen, but I have no faith that anything was or would be done.

Pretty good had loads of shops and has the train centre also in there so can get lots of visitors from train stations similar to manchester piccadilly. The only thing was the phone locker wasn’t working and wouldn’t give my phone back but got it back in the end but it took some time nearly a hour for them to fix it and get it out so yeah

We attempted to go to the Bullring in Birmingham for a couple of hours of shopping Sunday afternoon. However after entering the car park at 3 minutes to 2 and driving up and down for nearly 20 minutes to find a parking space we gave it up as a bad job, so we exited the car park. It cost us £3.80 for the privilege.
I cannot comment on the Shops as we didnt get to see them, and frankly never will, as we wont fall for the daylight robbery in Birmingham again!

I love the shops, there is so much variety. But, when I went into the toilets near the Levi’s store and changed into a new pair of jeans I bought, the cubicles were disgusting and there was crap covered tissues on the floor next to the toilet. It smelt foul.
