The site of the Bullring has been a commercial centre since the 12th century, although we’re pretty sure there wasn’t a Selfridges there back then. The Bullring shopping centre is made up of two buildings on either side of St Martin’s Square, connected by an underground passageway. The architecture has been pretty divisive, with some considering it one of the ugliest buildings in the UK, but it’s the shopping that counts and, in that regard at least, the Bullring is beautiful. There are over 160 shops in the Bullring, so it’s probably quicker to name the high street stores that aren’t there. Its crowning glory is the aforementioned Selfridges, one of only four of the historic chain in the world (along with one in London and two in Manchester). If you can’t find what you need here, it might not actually exist.
