A smart, lovely square with impressive architecture connecting the Symphony Hall, Birmingham Rep and the soon to be opened new Library of Birmingham. Just off Broad Street, it links the main shopping areas and is a mass of flowers in the spring and summer.

Centenary Square and Chamberlain Square make for a wonderful sidetrack from just seeing the obvious sights of Birmingham and is easily accessible from different areas of the city centre

Currently covered in scaffolding and builders. I'm sure it'll be lovely when it's finished. Surrounded by the ICC and library, easy to locate from the cranes!

New Years Eve Fireworks

Good points:

Plenty of standing room, not overly squashed
Plenty of hotels and restaurants nearby

Bad points:
Unlike Manchester NYE fireworks, no DJ, music or midnight countdown was provided by the organisers. Therefore it did not have the traditional feeling of a NYE celebration, come on Birmingham provide these things to ensure the visitors who turn up have an amazing experience.

I don't drive but wanted a day out where I could take a picnic and watch the world go by - you wont find anywhere better or easier to get to than Centenary Square. You are surrounded by beautiful flowers, magnificent buildings, stunning statues and of course the nearly completed WEDDING CAKE (my name for the amazing new Birmingham Library). You can pick your bench, eat your picnic and watch the world go by and you simply have to POP ON A BUS OR TRAIN and you are there in the blinking of an eye, simply the top of New Street, past the Museum (fabulous place), through the thoroughfare and it opens up before you. NOT TO BE MISSED especially in the summer.

The square is on the route from Victoria Square and the main shopping to the canals and Sea life centre of Birmingham. It is really busy and last time we walked through they were still building the new library so there was a big chunk of the square that was fenced off for the construction work.

Centenary Square is one of the central squares and a popular meeting place. There are some impressive buildings around the square: the International Convention Centre, Birmingham Repertory Theatre, Baskerville House, and Hall of Memory. Currently, the place looks a bit like a building site because there is the new Birmingham library built there.

It is a very busy place. I liked the table tennis tables in the square, where people can play ping-pong for free.

I know that this place is the most important place in the new year celebration with fireworks. Unfortunately, I came to Birmingham in July, but I hope I'll be back in the winter and see the fireworks.
