I had always wanted to go inside here and was glad I did. It is a quiet, peaceful place to consider lives lost. Pay your respects people. It's a mini cathedral!

Open every day except Sunday between 10:00 and 16:00 and free to enter, the Hall of Memory is a wonderful tribute to the thousands of Birmingham citizens who gave their lives in both World Wars and during the many campaigns since 1945. It's an oasis of calm in a busy part of the city centre. The rolls of honour listing... More

This tranquil building is surrounded by busy roads and a shopping arcade, yet once inside you are afforded a silent retreat from the busy world. It was worthwhile visiting for the architecture, as well as the touching tributes to the war dead from Afganistan and Iraq.

A fitting and poignant tribute to those who lost their lives in both world wars and conflicts since. Surrounded by flowers and set in an elegant square.

Sombre thoughtful and a fitting tribute to all in the services who have given their lives. If in Birmingham city centre find ten minuets to escape the chaos and mayhem of broad street to say your prayers for those no longer with us

It is a lovely memorial to the men and women of Birmingham who died in the first and second world wars, and in active service since 1945, and their names are contained in three books. You may have walked past it many times on your way to... More

This is worth a visit just to remember all those that have given up their lives for us. Peaceful and full of respect. The book displays all the names of those who have fallen on a particular day. Really makes you feel humble.

Sober and sombre, calm, peaceful, important and meaningful. The place could do with a bit more interest or some information about the building, its age, was it purpose-built, the windows etc. It is as though you step out of modern-day Birmingham into a time warp. Generally my kind of place.
