Transformed from its industrial past, the Jewellery Quarter is a hotspot for young professionals. This community is located within close proximity to the city centre, and contains Europe’s largest concentration of manufacturing jewellers – producing more than 40% of UK jewellery output! Also home to a wide range of independent businesses and classed as a conservation area (which means only low rise developments are allowed), you’ll find plenty of apartments, townhouses and penthouses here to suit a range of tastes. If you like the idea of living in a trendy area with plenty of trendy bars and restaurants, the Jewellery Quarter is for you!
If you want to make the most of public transport to enjoy the best of Birmingham City Centre then the Jewellery Quarter should tick all of your boxes. Located just a 10 minute walk to the city’s central train stations (New Street and Snow Hill), it also has its own Jewellery Quarter station too. Plus the Metro stop at St Pauls will take you across the city too, and this area also benefits from being located close to the M6 and M5 motorways.
In the Jewellery Quarter you’ll have access to some great schools across the B16 or B18 postcodes. These include: St John's and St Peter's C of E Academy, Barford Primary School and the Jewellery Quarter Academy.
If you love fine dining and enjoying a range of up-market bars, then let us reveal some of the Jewellery Quarter’s hottest establishments. 40 St Pauls recently won the award for being The World’s Best Gin Bar (make ours a double), Ana Rocha is an authentic tapas bar and art gallery that is run by Spanish owner Edgar, The Whisky Club is Birmingham’s only bar dedicated to whisky (although other drinks are available), The Wolf is known for its craft beer and Lord Clifden has one of the city’s top beer gardens.
If you fancy getting out for some fresh air locally, St Paul’s Square provides the perfect spot for sitting and watching the world go by, the city’s canal network is also within close proximity and you’re also only a 15 minute walk to Edgbaston Reservoir. If you love walking, wildlife spotting or making the most of the water, this is the place for you!
THINGS TO DO
Love live music? Then head to the Jam House. Is darts your thing? Then you need to go to the 180 Club. Plus don’t forget about The Museum of the Jewellery Quarter, the Banksy mural or Indian restaurant Opheem on Summer Row – one of the area’s best restaurants with a Michelin Star (and the Karahi Pakistan comes highly recommended by us too!)
