Colmore Row. Birmingham’s best business address
Where every business wants to be
Colmore Row and its adjoining streets have been at the heart of Birmingham’s business district since the 1850s. A conservation area for 40 years, the district has maintained its unique character and style. Leading banks, finance houses, corporate law firms, insurance companies and marketing advisers all call it HQ.
The city’s best bars and restaurants are all clustered in the immediate area. There are handy independent shops along Colmore Row and Great Western Arcade, while bigger brands are easily accessible along nearby Temple Row and the Bullring, less than ten-minute stroll away.
Birmingham is at the geographical centre of Great Britain, with excellent transport connections to the rest of the country. The city has enjoyed record levels of investment in its infrastructure in recent years. New Street and Snow Hill stations are a short walk from 103 Colmore Row, while the newly extended Metro provides easy commuting. The much-anticipated HS2 will reduce journeys to London to less than 50 minutes.
