“Victoriana at its best”
Reviewed 27 April 2014

Even though the fountain was not turned on, this is still a very impressive public space where people hand out and street entertainers show their stuff. Worth a detour to see.

“Good christmas market but extremely busy and crowded”
Reviewed 4 January 2014

We went to the Christmas market in birmingham to have a look round and spend the day. The food in the market was good I had bratwurst sausage which was good and a waffle for dessert which was really nice but the market is extremely busy and extremely hard to walk around and look at the stalls without queueing. The stalls are ok but tend to repeat themselves with several stalls selling the same thing. Need to improve on making the queueing more freeflow and make it easier to access the stalls. I would recommend you totally avoid going to the Christmas market on Saturday unless you want to wait in big queues and have people pushing and barging they way as you walk through. The Christmas market is worth a visit on Sunday.

“Christmas market”
Reviewed 19 December 2013

We came to the christmas market during the week it wasnt too busy, we thought the market had many stalls however several of the stalls were the same which is pointless. Also many of the stall holders were there last yr, I thought near the ice ring the market had a nice feel to it with with different places to have a drink or a bite to eat. The market is worth going to if you haven't been before.
