Jewellery Quarter Area Guide
The Jewellery Quarter is located in the northwestern area of the Birmingham City Centre and is is home to Europe’s highest concentration of businesses involved in the jewellery trade, and many of the greatest jewellers in the world. Here you can ask bespoke jewellers to create magnificent pieces that will never be found or worn by anyone else.
These businesses are set in a charming background of lively cafés, restaurants and bars that frequently host live music events. Recording studios, bespoke fashion boutiques, art galleries, and artists studios also line the streets of one of Birmingham’s most creative areas. Residents of the Jewellery Quarter also benefit from the beautiful garden surrounding St Paul’s Church in St Paul’s Square.
All of these creative influences combine to make Birmingham’s Jewellery Quarter one of the city’s most desirable places to live.
The longest-running school in the Jewellery Quarter is the Municipal School for Jewellers and Silversmiths, now part of the Birmingham Institute of Art and Design, run by Birmingham City University, on Vittoria Street.
Bounded by Great Hampton Street, Hall Street and Kenyon Street is the Birmingham campus of The College of Law charity.
Abbey College Birmingham is a college based in buildings overlooking St Paul’s Square.
Birmingham Music School exists within Branston Court, its presence adding to the growing music scene within the Jewellery Quarter and Hockley areas.
