  • It's free!!!! Would highly recommend this excellent insight into Birmingham's history and so much more. Do leave time to visit the tearooms as well. The bhaji burger was an excellent choice and the fish finger sandwich was good too. So much to see and lots if interactive things to do too.
  • A fabulous collection of art from ancient to modern. A truly beautiful Edwardian cafe with a splendid menu, outstanding service and affordable prices. Well done Birmingham! This is a jewel amongst many other gems in this great city. Your regeneration is an outstanding example to other cities of vision and civic pride.
