13. Victoria Square
A public space at one end of New Street in Birmingham’s centre, Victoria Square consists of a number of interesting architectural and political buildings along with noteworthy sculptures.
The Council House and the Greek looking Town Hall cover two sides whereas the Iron Man, The River – which has been converted from a fountain to a “garden”, and a statue of Queen Victoria also stand in the square.
Victoria Square often comes alive during special celebrations or at lunch hour every weekday as surrounding office workers head on there to sit and grab a quick bite in some fresh air.
