I've always walked past this building without actually knowing what it is. One day I walked past and it was open and so I did myself a favour and had a look. The inside has numerous plaques and dedications to those who died in WW1...More

Thinking about sacrifice of others makes me feel both humbled and sad. Beautiful, tranquil space. A good place to pause and reflect.

Development perk prevented access, I'd deliberately made the choice to come and see this. An outside view from behind a hoarding was all I could get.

Birmingham has such an eclectic vibe in the city center, it ranges from super modern to the old and historic. Hall of memory was an interesting structure to find while on an early morning walk. Good for those with an interest in history or architecture.
