The Metro is great for city centre shoppers

From Bull Street the Metro will take you to its next stop on Corporation Street where you’ll find House of Fraser, New Look and Superdrug.
From there it’s only a short walk to New Street for H&M, Body Shop, Clarks and Oasis. And just a little bit further to the High Street, for many more shops including Marks & Spencer, WH Smith, Boots, and the world’s largest Primark.
The final stop along the Metro route is Grand Central (Stephenson Street), Brum’s most recent retail offer anchored by department store John Lewis. Other stores in Grand Central include Fat Face, Monsoon, Paperchase and Holland & Barrett. Grand Central has a glass-covered pedestrian link through to Birmingham’s famous Bullring … and loads more shops!
