Modern and still better than the past
Apr 2021 • Couples
Still much improved but John Lewis shutting may be the start of a decline. Hope not as a nice entrance to the city if you arrive by train. Full of restaurants and easy access to the Bull Ring

Desperately sad
Nov 2020 • Couples
A lonely desperate area. After the euphoria of its opening Grand Central is now becoming a sad area. No people due to Covid. Shops shut and to crown it all the centre piece John Lewis gone!

Sad. Sad sad for the second city

Reintroduction to Birmingham.
Sep 2020 • Friends
My twin brother Stephen and I decided to have a five day break in Birmingham to visit some of the great sites of this city and enjoy the innumerable pub's, bars and restaurants to be found in this cosmopolitan city and arriving at Birmingham New Street you have the great introduction of Grand Central .
I haven't been to Birmingham for at least 15 years ,I was a frequent visitor to this city but this was my first trip here since 2005 and I can't recollect Birmingham New Street being like this back then.
Grand Central is a chic, modern concourse, lots of restaurant and cafe's, there's retail outlets, its such a wonderful introduction to the city ,I was totally surprised and impressed ,after a train journey of just less than 2 hours we decided to grab a coffee in Caffè Concerto ,coffee was delicious and the views spectacular, loved our visit to Grand Central, most definitely well worth a visit if you're planning a trip to Birmingham.

Good to come and look around the shops and eat in the cafes worth coming primark is pretty amazing and also people are great friendly enough and also fast service. Plenty to see and do. The bull ring centre is great to take pics worth coming for the day we had a good time out in the fresh air. It would be nice to come back again we never saw any trouble or any violence it was our first time going to Birmingham city center worth coming and worth having a day out here either by train or by car or coach. Primark is fabulous worth coming to primark for its bargains. The cleanliness and safety is paramount really and myself and my friend felt safe and welcomed in Birmingham it be nice to come back here maybe not straight away but in couple of years time most definitely

Wow! Where Birmingham New Street Go?!?!

Wow! Where Birmingham New Street Go?!?!

I haven’t been here in the early 1990’s, when New Street station was a seedy smelly place, with a beautiful view of Digbeth, the Aston Express Way and a large British Rail logo. A hang over of 1970’s Britain.

This place however is unrecognisable as that same station.

More restaurants than you can shake a stick at, accompanied by lot’s of nice shops.

You can find Joules, Kath Kidson, The White Company, Monsoon, Accessorize and John Lewis.

Highly surprised with my first visit in 30 years. Would have no problem recommending.

Retail therapy waiting for a train
Jan 2020 • Solo
The new Grand Central is linked to the Bullring so its shopping galore as soon as you step foot off the train. Its nice, bright and airy, and hard to get lost since its circular for the most part. It is super busy though.
Great place to explore if you've got time to spare before catching a train?
