A Vibrant Neighbourhood

Southside is Birmingham’s most vibrant district, home to Chinatown, Theatreland and an eclectic mix of bars and restaurants to explore.
Welcome to Smithfield

Home to the city’s Chinatown, as well as boasting three theatres, the country’s oldest working cinema, and a great collection of bars and restaurants, Southside is an urban location buzzing with life.

A short stroll away

Located within sight of Birmingham’s best shopping, The Forum is just a short stroll away from The Bullring, Selfridges and Grand Central. Getting around is easy with New Street Station literally just around the corner.

The Creative Quarter

Neighbouring Digbeth, with its eclectic street art, is the city’s self-styled creative quarter. It’s where the city’s medieval roots began and where you’ll find the Irish Quarter as well as the award- winning Digbeth Dining Club, dishing up some of Britain’s best street food.

A new lease of life

The Forum is next to the emerging Smithfield regeneration zone. The former wholesale markets are making way for one of Europe’s largest city centre development sites. New retail markets, family leisure and cultural attractions, new homes and public squares are all in the pipeline.


At the heart of the UK, Birmingham is naturally well connected. It’s at the centre of the motorway network, boasts three city centre stations, a new Metro network and an international airport. The arrival of HS2 will put the city within a 45-minute train ride of London.
Birmingham’s cultural assets are second to none. The busiest theatre in the country, a Royal Ballet and a Symphony Orchestra with its own internationally renowned concert hall can all be found here. Birmingham Museum and Art Gallery is world class.
The city’s thriving foodie scene – from award-winning street food to Michelin stars – makes eating out here a real event. No wonder Birmingham is the most popular destination for people relocating out of London!
