The Bullring: World class shopping

For a lot of people who live in the middle of England shopping often becomes a strange diversion. We do not usually have the big name brands here, we do not have the high end fashion shops that grace the larger cities. Shopping for that kind of things often requires a journey to London or to one of the bizarre shopping locations like Bista (a home for high end brands away from cities in one, weird warehouse location.)
If you do not want to travel though, we finally have somewhere to shop. Birmingham, the largest city in the Midlands, has the Birmingham Bullring. While it mainly houses the high street fashion you’d find elsewhere, the Topshops and HMVs of the world, you’ll also find a giant Selfridges with boutiques from many high end fashion brands. Armani, Burberry and Ralph Lauren. It’s the perfect day trip with many great restaurants as well to keep you satisfied.
