    The Bull Ring market

    The Bull Ring market is found just south of the eastern end of New Street.

    Although there is no longer a meat market here, the Bull Ring is still made up of several other distinct markets, which are held every day except Sundays and Mondays.

  • The Bull Ring is where...

    The Bull Ring is where Birmingham began 900 years ago. Go shopping in the Bull Ring. There are five markets, including a fish market (fresh every day) and a flea market.
    Historically, there's been a market on this site for 900 years. It's a working market, where Brummies themselves shop. Reputedly Samuel Goldwyn (MGM) started his working life as a barker here. Experience the raw humour of the traders, and pick up some bargains.

    While in Birmingham you must take in the Bull ring! You can shop dozens and dozens of stores right off the main train and bus lines. Easy to get to and lots of choices of stores.

    St. Martin's Church and Selfridges in the back make an impressive view. I really like the way the 2 completelly different styles are set together.

    It may not have a column like some other tributes to the great naval leader.Not as well known as its equivalent in Londons Trafalgar Square, but worth a look nonetheless.
