Selly Oak at night
Selly Oak town centre serves the needs of the student and local populations, with plenty of shopping and a bustling and vibrant nightlife.
Just a couple of miles from the city Centre, Selly Oak is located around the A38 (Bristol Road). The area combines national retail chains, boutique independents and a lively night-time economy.
There are several major supermarket chains on the Bristol Road for stocking up with essentials, while the Battery Retail Park is home to national DIY chains, electrical and fashion outlets. There’s a niche, independent retail nearby including grocers, furniture stores and hairdressers, even a specialist kite and juggling shop!
Eating & drinking
With the University of Birmingham on the doorstep, Selly Oak has a bustling, cosmopolitan atmosphere. Where else could you have a Turkish breakfast, Chinese for lunch and Bangladeshi cuisine for dinner? Or perhaps enjoy a traditional pub quiz, or live music from unsigned local artists?
Selly Oak is located on one of the major roads into Birmingham, the A38 (Bristol Road) and is just a couple of miles to the south of the city centre. It’s easy to find by car and very well served by public transport links.
A number of bus routes run along Bristol Road including: 61, X62, 63, X64, 143 and 144. Additionally, a number of services cut across the area at Battery Retail Park. These include 11 Outer Circle, 20, 76 and 84.
Selly Oak Station, which also benefits from free parking, is well signposted and offers regular trains into the city centre and out again along towards Redditch.
