Centenary Square is a central point for various events throughout the year - it once was the home of the "Birmingham Eye" - a big wheel similar to the one in London.
It is a central celebration point at New Year.
Unique Suggestions: Make sure you visit on your way to - or from - the Gas Street Basin canal complex - it is likely that you would pass through here anyway. It lies between the canals and National Indoor Arena and Symphony Hall - and the Town Hall and the statue of the "Floosie in The Jacuzi"
Take a look at this site (its a very irreverend look at Brum!)
