Disappointed with the jewellery quarter and the city centre is lacking in antique dealers. Finally, too much/many renovations happening all at once in the city.

We was told to avoid Broad Street as its the trouble-some area but we found it very pleasant and less drama then a Friday night in Brighton. Deff recommend if your under 25. If your over 25, check out the Arcadiam - its more up market, so nice dresses and heels for that one.

It's got a lovely selection of foods from around the world, along with traditional English pubs and food. There's history right next to shopping centres, for instance there's a beautiful church right by the Bullring shopping centre.
