Chamberlain Square is the small square you walk through between Victoria and Centenary Squares in Birmingham city centre. It is a bit forgotten and is in desperate need of a redesign, which luckily it is getting in 2015. Bordering the square you have the Museum and Art Gallery, in a lovely Victorian building with the towering 'Big Brum' clocktower attached.... More

Walk through here so many times without really noticing it maybe when the old library is demolished there will be an improvement it has town hall on one side and museum on another two beautiful buildings and with the steps fountain and statue of Chamberlain could be made nicer I think

Very old looking but it does link Victoria Square and the shopping centre with centenary square and beyond. Quite nice to sit on the steps in the sun, but be careful of the pigeons.

... 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
