Owner description: Mailbox opened in 1998 and was the redevelopment of the former Royal Mail sorting office in Birmingham City Centre. It is one of the UK’s largest mixed-use building incorporating retail, leisure, offices and residential in a well managed, security patrolled complex of the highest quality. The tenants include Malmaison and AC Hotels, the BBC Midlands headquarters, luxury retailers including Harvey Nichols, and a range of restaurants and bars. As Birmingham’s premier shopping and lifestyle destination the Mailbox is the ultimate location for designer shopping in the Midlands with international brands as well as chic salons & spas in one central Birmingham location.

We were doing a tour of Birmingham and this was on of the places we were told to visit, we weren't that keen on it, but it has its place. The main positive to take from it was the restaurants on the top floor, lots of choice and not over crowed, outside on a summers day would be lovely.

There's restaurants galore along the canal. Its a fun place to have a drink at with friends and there's a good variety of food and activities.

great carpark secure well lit and plenty of spaces. Easy access in and out. Check you height of vehicle, we have a tall MPV and just squeezed under the barrier.
chip coin payment is a great idea. Take you coin to the theatre and they scan it.. you get a discount on your parking which saved £4. So 6 hours parking cost only £6 instead of a tenner

High end shopping venue contained within a stylish architectural shell. Good use of texture and daylight by Stanton Williams. Plenty of trendy places to eat and drink. Harvey Nichols, which is half shop and half art gallery, provides the keynote/anchor store within the Mailbox and offers an interesting browsing experience for those who don't have the cash for a dabble in the world of über fashion

I walk through the mall every day on my way to and from work. It absolutely amazes me how it ticks over. I have genuinely never seen a single person in any of the stores on the middle level. Bizarre! Harvey Nicholls has more staff than customers, and being arrogant must be a requirement of the role. The centre is clean and has toilets which are well serviced which is always handy. Would never visit here for leisure.
