“World Class”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 29, 2013

Symphony hall is a very impressive building with everything for a great night out. There is no queuing at busy concerts and the acoustics allow everyone to hear the best of any performance.
Staff are helpful and friendly, and in adequate number.
Have seen world class concerts here and have never been disappointed with the venue. For me this is one of the greatest symphony halls in the world; for the experience, acoustics, design and visual look. Even parking is easy.

“disabled visitor”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 27, 2013

Large modern building situated close to night club area of Broad Street and canal for its restaurants. The hall is large, good sound facilities at each show, eating and drinking places available, so if you have booked a concert, go early and enjoy the surrounding area of this lively part of Birmingham

“Amazing acoustics”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 27, 2013

If you want to hear the purest performance come to the symphony hall, we've been here many times and it must have the best acoustics in the uk.
Apparently it was built on pads that enhance the buildings acoustics, great facilities inside and easy to get around in, great temperature control
