"Chamberlain Square" Chamberlain Square Tip by leffe3

Chamberlain Square, Birmingham: 11 reviews and 20 photos

 
 

Connecting with Victoria Square, Chamberlain Square is the main civic public space in the city, with the Town Hall (1734 - a concert hall, not the civic centre of the city) backing onto the square and the Chamberlain Memorial (1880, commemorating one of Birmingham's most celebrated statesman), side elevation of the Council House (1874), the Birmingham Museum and Art Gallery (1874), the Big Brum clocktower (1885) and the much more recent Central Library (1974).

It's a key part of understanding the civic pride of the city from the late Victorian period and the wealth the industrial revolution bestowed on Birmingham.
