High Street

Away from the hustle and bustle of the malls you’ll find some of retail’s finest names and fantastic street entertainment in Birmingham’s shopping streets.


New Street

Birmingham’s most famous street takes you from the Bullring at one end to the Town Hall and Council House at the other.

On the way there’s plenty to grab your attention including Jack Wills, The Body Shop, Primark and Watches of Switzerland - or maybe the latest cinematic blockbuster at the Odeon. Why not take a break along the way at Starbucks, Pret a Manger or Second Cup?

Narrow streets with brilliant names snake off to unearth hidden gems. There’s the unique independent boutique Disorder on Needless Alley, Jigsaw and White Stuff on Cannon Street, and two of Birmingham’s specialist independent fashion retailers in Autograph and Cloudo on Ethel Street.

Don’t forget to explore Piccadilly and Burlington Arcades too. Both offer a host of independent retailers, jewellers and hair and beauty stores including Bad Apple Hair, Piccadilly Jewellers and Smithsonia, as well as unique places to eat and drink such as the Bacchus Bar and top quality designer clothes from the likes of Flannels.


Corporation Street

Recognised as a shopping destination in its own right, it’s an easy walk from New Street StationSnow Hill Station or the Bullring, where you’ll find big names such as New Look and Easy Gym.

House of Fraser commands pride of place on Corporation Street, packed full of the latest men’s, women’s and children’s fashion, as well as a wide range of home and beauty items.

Just off Corporation Street is Martineau Place, a great spot for lunch with La Vera, Talk of the Town and Sainsbury’s at hand, as well as Nata, an independent café specialising in Portuguese coffee, sandwiches and treats. If you head the other way, you’ll walk down Cherry Street and head towards Birmingham Cathedral where office workers and visitors mingle and enjoy the lunchtime summer sunshine in its’ beautiful green church yard.


High Street

Linking Bullring with Marks & Spencer, you’ll find the best street entertainers providing a lively backdrop to the vibrant, bustling High Street. Big names such as Waterstones, the city’s largest Boots and Levi, as well as M&S can be found here.
