Bullring & Grand Central

Formerly three separate shopping areas, Bullring, Grand Central and LinkStreet have teamed up to become the best shopping destination in Birmingham. Between them there are over 200 shops, making them not only the largest but the most varied shopping destination in the city. One of the flagships and the largest store on the Bullring estate is the 250,000 sq ft. John Lewis store. You’ll also find many designers and high street names contained within, like Hobbs, The White Company, Cath Kidston and Carluccio’s.

You’ll find Grand Central, Birmingham’s newest prime shopping centre, located above New Street Station and next to Bullring. It’s become somewhat of a foodie hub with many stylish restaurants, cafés and bars inside. £150 million has been pumped into this gorgeous destination to make it state of the art. Dine and enjoy drinks with friends until late in the evening with the idyllic backdrop of St Martin’s Church and the iconic Selfridges building.

Mailbox Birmingham

Mailbox is an upmarket retail and office development and describes itself as an iconic shopping and lifestyle destination. One of the most remarkable stores in this very upmarket resort is the 45,000 Sq ft. Harvey Nichols, one of only 7 in the UK. It showcases over 200 of the world’s most desirable brands under one roof, many of whom are exclusive to Harvey Nichols. There are some very impressive services in Mailbox too, like a beauty salon and a very highly trained concierge and personal shopping service, great if you’re looking for something special.


If you’re in the market for a special piece for an engagement, anniversary, birthday or something special for yourself, the only place to go is Jewellery Quarter. It is home to more than 700 retailers, diamond dealers, and workshops, as well as the Museum of the Jewellery Quarter. You’ll also find some of the best food and drink in Birmingham in this gorgeous urban village, based on the edge of the city. Not only can you shop until you drop, there are also some fantastic museums and galleries in the area – like Coffin Works. A trip to the Jewellery quarter is always a unique independent shopping experience.

Corporation Street

If you’re looking for something off the beaten track and want to avoid the usual high-street brands, take a trip to Corporation Street. Here you’ll find the Oasis Alternative Fashion Market, a real jewel in the crown of Birmingham’s shopping scene. It’s an independent fashion store. Here you can find everything, in every style imaginable, from tattoos to tutus and everything in between. You’ll also find many other alternative shops like Hippy Buddy, Cass Art and Anna Bees.
