Birmingham's Inner City is home to the Jewellery Quarter in the north, Digbeth in the south and Eastside with Millennium Point and the new Curzon Street development.

Staying just outside of the city centre can prove both cheaper and quieter. The main attractions are only a leisurely walk away or a short bus ride.

Popular bars and restaurants can be found around St Paul's Square in the Jewellery Quarter or check out the Custard Factory and Rainbow Venues in Digbeth for an alternative night out to Broad Street.

The Jewellery Quarter is an industrial conservation area that has become a tourist attraction in its own right, attracting thousands of visitors each year from all over the world. It is Europe's largest concentration of businesses involved in the jewellery trade, both manufacture and retail.

St Paul's Square is Birmingham's last remaining Georgian square and an example of late 18th century urban planning in Birmingham. The Assay Office on Newhall Street was the largest in the world. Chamberlain Clock was erected in 1903 at the junction of Vyse and Frederick streets.
