The Bullring is iconic Brum – a shopping and leisure complex emblematic of the city’s spectacular regeneration. With more than 160 shops featuring massive brands in technology, fashion and sports – as well as a few independent beauties – the Bullring is the perfect place to lose some hours (and some cash!) on a city break. There’s a whole street of proper restaurants, plus dozens of cafes, bars and smaller eateries. Bang in the middle of the city, the Bullring is composed of independently built stores and purpose-built centres surrounded by the historic Bull Ring market area. Even if you don’t go inside, you have to visit the Selfridges building: a modern masterpiece that looks like an insect’s eye!
