The Hall of Memory was built to commemorate those who died in WWI. It was opened by H.R.H. Prince Arthur of Connaught on 4th July 1925. Made of Portland Stone almost entirely by Birmingham craftsmen, it cost £60,000, raised through public donations alone.

Unfortunately the doors were firmly shut when we visited, so we could not see the three rolls of honour inside. However, we admired the four larger than life bronze statues by local artist Albert Toft, which represent the Army, Navy, Air Force and Women's Services.

The Hall of Memory is worth spotting while viewing the Library, a fine building in the middle of a large open square with lots of redevelopment going on, currently a tram end stop nearby, keeps the history of the place.

In a city with excellent architecture everywhere, the Hall of Memory is well worth a visit - very moving chapel inside - highly recommended.

The Hall of Memory is a War Memorial made of Portland Stone and was erected in tribute to the many Birmingham citizens who lost their lives in active service from World War I to present day. On my visit the memorial was receiving a lot interest from passers by and so it should, it is a fine monument in Centenary Square.

Easily passed but well worth the visit. The art that dedicates honours to the fallen is a fitting tribute - stately solemn and timeless.

If it is open this is a must visit place in Birmingham. Extremely well thought out and very moving. Right in the heart of the City.

While I was in Birmingham I just had to come here again. For a reason I cannot understand I find this building very up lifting. It's a memory in stone to all the fallen heroes of both world wars... Sad we have to mark this. But very fitting we do. Very emotional. The guys who built this were craftsmen of there time. Sometimes we have to reflect and this is certainly the place to do it.

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.

This looks like a very interesting memorial to those who fought in the war. Couldn’t get close today due to construction work. Next time
