Surrounded by quite a lot of modern development, the church has witnessed much change in the area around it. Worth popping in for a few minutes, it's very quiet and serene. Outside did seem to be a bit of a meeting spot, including for some...More

Just by the church there is a terrific summer 'beach' set up with bar. Great fun. Shame it was a rainy day. Be packed when the sun's out no doubt.

This church is in a really dramatic setting, just below the Bull Ring. I also like the architecture of the shopping centre but the contrast is really amazing. Very much worth a visit, it is easy to get to as you just follow the slope...More

We visited the Bull Ring on a trip to Birmingham. This church really stands out to the point is looks a little out of place. However, it contrasts the modern Bull Ring really well and is a beautiful example of a church. Well worth visiting...More

I enjoyed my visit to St.Martin's. It was peaceful when I visited, but I got the firm impression that there was a loyal congregation of worshippers at the church, I certainly hope so. The church was beautiful in parts and well worth a visit.

A good combination of solemnity and liberty. You are adviced against photography during service but any other time you are welcome to see the place with your camera. The prayer room gives you the atmosphere the moment your stepped in there.

If you appreciate the beauty of Goth architecture... it’s a must visit.. there is also a heritage tour inside, telling you about the history of the church and it’s, design, build and restoration. One of my favourite churches..absolutely breathtaking.
