Right next to the City Art Gallery and Museum with a large square in between. Fab Victorian architecture. Very walkable all these buildings in the city centre. Catch also the "Floozy in the Jacuzzi" (statue of a naked lady in the fouhtain in the square)....More

Good walks along the town hall if you pass enroute to bull ring from brindley place. Some past building and few high end restaurants nearby

We come to the Town Hall regularly to concerts and gigs. It’s a lovely venue. The facilities are decent and well tended and the staff are good.

One of Birmingham's hidden jems, the acoustics when you are sitting in just fantastic. Lovely to spend a night

Beautiful building but the surroundings totally spolied by MASSIVE building works for the next couple of years. If you love buildings, then ignore the chaos around you & you’ll enjoy this one.

The stage is a raised one. Perhaps a seat booster may help, but It might be best to go for a front centre circle seat.
