was walking from one business meeting to another and had opportunity to walk through Birmingham city centre. Thoughts that the place was looking a lot cleaner and in particular Chamberlain Square was really smart.
I am sure that visitors to the city will have become increasingly impressed with what the city has been doing - well done, good for business, good for Birmingham

Museum, Town Hall and prone statue on the steps are all first class to see. However, the unappealling backdrop of Centrlal library and shopping area bring this down and the fountain looks a bit unloved.

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 Suare and the fountain was dedicated to Chamberlain, who was an Alderman of Birmigham. It is smallish and has the Town Hall, Central Library and the Council House surrounding it.

Apart from the off BCC activity, there is nothing here at all. The fountain is filthy. If you are a tourist, don't bother with this 'attraction'
