Nice market with every imaginable thing you can buy. There’s a friendly atmosphere too. Wish there’s something like this where I live. Nothing wrong with malls, but markets like this should be preserved as well.

You must visit this market when in B'ham. It's a local institution and really has something for everyone. It seemed like there were surprises around every corner. And lots of bargains (I got a very nice scarf for only £3). I couldn't begin to list...More
