Victoria Square

This square has transformed over the past decade from a grassy slope where office workers would picnic on a summer's afternoon to a pedestrian-friendly European plaza accessible all year. Birmingham's Town Hall and Council House are located on the square, but graded steps replace the slope and there's now a large fountain containing a sculpture known fondly by locals as the Floozie in the Jacuzzi. Stone lamps and statues of sphinxes adorn the grounds, as does a statue of Queen Victoria. Victoria Square has now become a popular meeting point and a relaxing place for people to watch.

Having received a major face-lift in 1873, this magnificent, stone church is characterful and richly adorned with archways, painted beams, Victorian tiles and medieval frescoes sheltered by a timber roof. Surrounded on all sides by intricate stained glass windows, the church is a stunning tapestry of theatrical decor as well as architectural finesse, all remnants of the glorious Victorian era.
