Coventry Road is an area for everyone, with exotic fruits and vegetables, fresh meat and fish sitting alongside more familiar goods, providing a vibrant and fascinating backdrop to the area. In the shopping area, you will find all you need, whether it’s jewellery, fine fabrics, bookshops and travel agents.

The area has plenty of parks and green spaces including Small Heath Park, which regularly hosts local festivals and fun fairs.

Eating & drinking

Coventry Road cafeThe Coventry Road boasts an impressive array of cuisines and something to tempt everyone’s taste buds. The centre is renowned for its Mediterranean and Arabian restaurants and is a spicy alternative to Birmingham’s famous Balti Triangle.

The centre hosts patisseries to rival its Parisian counterparts and is a hotspot for the locals to sit and chat in. If you’re watching the calories, a smattering of healthier bars and cafés can be found where the treats are further out of reach!
