Esta plaza ha cambiado mucho en los últimos diez años. El Ayuntamiento de Birmingham se encuentra en la plaza, pero escalones reemplazaron a la pendiente y ahora hay una gran fuente con una escultura conocida por los lugareños como la Floozie in the Jacuzzi. Para adornar el lugar, se encuentra lámparas de piedra y estatuas de esfinges, al igual que una estatua de la Reina Victoria. La Plaza Victoria se ha convertido en un popular punto de encuentro y lugar de descanso de la ciudad.
The Custard Factory is a premier shopping and digital business area in Birmingham. Its name comes from the Bird's Custard Factory that was located here. The neighborhood was developed with young people in mind, there are studios for jazz, drama, music and dance alongside workshops for crafts, film makers and designers. Shops, cafes and restaurants have opened in recent years catering for the young and trendy types that are attracted to the complex, and it is likely more will open in the future.
Birmingham has more miles of canals than Venice (as any local will only too proudly tell you), though many of them are hidden beneath street level. Gas Street Basin is where several canals meet and was once a thriving port. Today, you can still see colorful canal boats moored here, just a stone's throw from Broad Street in the city center. It's also an up-and-coming spot for new bars and cafes, and is close to popular Brindleyplace.
The jewelry industry developed in the city from the mid-19th Century. At its peak in the early part of the 20th Century, it employed nearly 20,000 workers. Today, the Jewellery Quarter is a bustling area that produces over a third of the UK's jewelry, and you can find tons of bargains in its many small shops. It's also home to the award-winning Museum of the Jewellery Quarter and some good restaurants.

Sutton Park is a beautiful reserve sheathed in aged woodlands, heaths, wetlands and sparkling lakes, teeming with kestrels, pheasants, plovers, buntings and other wildlife. One of the largest in the United Kingdom, this expansive urban park is also home to recreational facilities for cycling, pony rides, trekking and boating. Cattle graze on grass-laden hills while the Sutton Park Line slices through, lending this National Nature Reserve an old-world charm. Although the park encompasses several pools like Powell's Pool, Bracebridge Pool and the Longmoor Pool, it is the Wyndley Pool which is the oldest and perhaps, the most prized. Volunteer conservationists and park rangers help to keep this reserve in order and cattle grazing has been reintroduced in order to keep young birch trees from entirely taking over the land. Sutton Park has also a recognized Scheduled Ancient Monument and Site of Special Scientific Interest.
