... compared to it's close neighbours, but well worth a couple of still moments to view the architecture on offer on a couple of it's sides (in particular the magnificent B. C. Museum and Art Gallery frontage) and to admire the Memorial Fountain.

We visited here as the German Christmas Markets are here again. The place as you can imagine was packed. It was standing room only and trying to move though the crowds was near impossible. Most of the people there were rude and drunk and just barging into everyone and refusing to let people get past. There were families there with... More

A square attached to Victoria Square that really offers nothing to stop and look at, you end up passing through it and paying no attention to it.

This is a very popular place where locals hang out. Near to the hustle and bustle of the A38, but a lovely link between the city centre and Centenary Square

was walking from one business meeting to another and had opportunity to walk through Birmingham city centre. Thoughts that the place was looking a lot cleaner and in particular Chamberlain Square was really smart. I am sure that visitors to the city will have become increasingly impressed with what the city has been doing - well done, good for business,... More

Museum, Town Hall and prone statue on the steps are all first class to see. However, the unappealling backdrop of Centrlal library and shopping area bring this down and the fountain looks a bit unloved.

This square just outside the Birmingham Museum & Art Gallery is a hive of activity and thoroughfare so watching the world go by whilst sat on the steps is always a nice way to pass time. Every couple of weeks something happens here whether it is an art installation, the summer beach or food stalls. Many people just sit on... More

Chamberlain Suare and the fountain was dedicated to Chamberlain, who was an Alderman of Birmigham. It is smallish and has the Town Hall, Central Library and the Council House surrounding it.

Apart from the off BCC activity, there is nothing here at all. The fountain is filthy. If you are a tourist, don't bother with this 'attraction'
