Fancy some retail therapy? Whatever you are looking for, be it a new pair of shoes, some sparkling jewellery, the latest electronic gadgets or clothes shopping, a trip to Birmingham will keep any shopaholic satisfied.
Being a popular city for domestic tourism, Birmingham is unsurprisingly the third largest retail centre in the UK, with annual turnover of £2.43bn. It features some of the UK’s finest department stores, and the iconic Bullring shopping centre, which is a fantastic place to shop with over 160 outlets selling a whole range of retail goods. For those who also like to snap a picture or two, the Bullring even offers shoppers fantastic photo opportunities with its landmark Selfridges building.
Then there is the fashionable Mailbox complex, also hosting a variety of shops including Harvey Nichols and Emporio Armani for fashionistas looking for the latest style trends.
For those who love a bit of sparkle, the Jewellery Quarter is famed for specialist hand-crafted jewellery, clocks and watches. With over 100 independent retail jewellers, the variety on offer is second to none and all with competitive pricing.
For something a little more unique, Birmingham also offers a host of independent stores where you can pick up something different or quirky.
