Chamberlain Square is in the centre of Birmingham. It is close to Victoria Square and Centenary Square. The Town Hall and the Art Gallery are both in the square and it's a short distance to the library, conference centre and symphony hall.

The area is served by buses and the Midland Metro trams stop nearby as well.

There are plenty of statues and sculptures to see nearby so if you like that sort of thing you will be in your element.

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 the steps and have their lunch. The fountain is very attractive and there is a fun bronze statue on the steps.

Chamberlain Square is currently being redeveloped. Will be fantastic when it is completed. Nice place to visit for a stroll around. Nice architecture. Recommend a visit.

Always an interesting place to visit (or just walk through on your way to the Symphony Hall or Rep). The newly cleaned memorial to Joseph Chamberlain looks magnificent, as does the Town Hall, Council House and Museum and Art Gallery, all worth visiting.
Plenty of places to eat and drink nearby.

Currently Chamberlain Square is under renovation but is still most definitely well worth checking out.
Named in honour of Joseph Chamberlain former mayor of Birmingham, there are some fine structures to admire here ,The Chamberlain Memorial Fountain, Council House ,Birmingham Town Hall,Birmingham Museum & Art Gallery, Birmingham Central Library can all be viewed from the square, the beautiful Christmas Market takes place here ,its just a very cool square to visit ,as I have alluded to at the start of the review the square is currently under renovation but it looks close to finishing, its a square I think you should check out if you're planning a trip to Birmingham.

Very easy to find by the town hall. A large square which hosts a German Christmas market every year. I can imagine this is a great place to sit in the sunshine and people watch.

Walking through Brum, walked through the large and impressive Chamberlain Square, near the Town Hall.
Large Impressive square - though partly cordoned off for tram works - shame´.

Part of a major renovation area going on throughout central Birmingham. Area abounds with fine buildings and the plans for the future look good.

Meeting in front of the Art Gallery to join the Positively Birmingham Walking tour we looked across to see the demolition of the old library complex. Lots of changes for the future of this part of Birmingham. Bold plans that will join up with work already completed. Use the train if you`re coming to Birmingham. Lots of diversions due to all this building work.
