A place to look at records of those men and women who have given their lives in the service of their country. You can ask to see specific entries if you have family or friends listed there. A small, quiet space, fit for purpose.

A funny looking building overshadowed by the new library and construction sites nearby. It's not clear what it is until you go inside. A quiet contemplative sort of experience like other war memorials which make you thankful to all the soldiers who sacrificed their lives for the country. I liked the marble architecture. However, the location is wrong for it.

This is a special place of peace, calm and memory. The exterior needs to be walked around to appreciate the sculptures and scale of the building. Inside is peaceful and simple interior where you can stay in peace to think and remember those who lost their lives in the great war. It is a beautiful place.

The Hall of Memory is a quiet place in the middle of a busy city to pay respect to the fallen. It is a free attraction that has statues on the outside commemorating the armed forces, with lovely poppy wreaths inside. It's a nice stop for history buffs. The Three Wise Men statue is across the street.

The Hall of Memory war memorial is very well done. Both the outside and the inside are very poinient. There are seats inside so we were able to sit and think for a few minutes.

How nice to see such a historic monument to the First World War - albeit right by the new library which has very modern architecture. A small building, so be careful not to miss it. As they say, we should not forget those that gave us our freedom.

A charming classically inspired pavilion now situated as a principal building in Birmingham's Centenary Square, this fine Portland stone structure was erected by public subscription between the First and Second World Wars and exhibits touches of Art Deco inspired ornamentation to compliment the fine bronze statues on the four principal faces of the building. A fitting tribute, which survived the... More

A lovely little monument and quiet place to reflect in the middle of the busy city. Serene and impressive architecture all around the building.

This was a good way to immortalise all the fallen from Birmingham and around, better than a cenotaph or obelisk.
