The Bullring is a commercial area of Birmingham. It has been an important feature of Birmingham since the Middle Ages, when its market was first held. It has been developed into a shopping centre twice; first in the 1960s, and then in the 2000s. Today the Bullring is Birmingham's newest shopping destination, and the most exhilarating city retail experience you'll have anywhere in Europe. Built at a cost of over £500 million, Bullring has brought over 26 football pitches worth of shops, boutiques and restaurants into the centre of town. It has reintroduced some of Birmingham's traditional streets and is a stimulating, glass covered environment where you can shop, eat or just be. Bullring isn't just a shopping centre. It's a new beginning for the city. It has introduced 3,200 more car parking spaces, improved public transport links and a refurbished Moor Street Station. And with a stunning mix of contemporary architecture and historic buildings, Bullring has completely changed the face of Birmingham.
