Set in the city centre, we are a stone's throw away from other city attractions and areas of retail therapy. And as the tour of the property takes just over an hour, we can easily fit into your day's plans.

The 1930s sweetshop

Jump back in time and taste nostalgia when visiting the 1930s sweetshop on the corner.


If you fancy a snack or a full meal, then we're only a short distance from good food and drink. As we're a small property, we don't have room for a tea-room, but we're across the road from two good pubs, a cafe and we're in the heart of China town.
We are also a short walk away from the Bullring and the new boy in town, Grand Central.
