Tips & Other Considerations

There may be some variations on the hours of individual shops and outlets in the shopping complex depending on opening hours of each shop and the particular day of the week.

Be alert and aware of your belongings at all times especially your wallet/purse and valuables and ensure they are hidden away from public view. If you have a bag try to use a shoulder bag with a strong strap, that is put across your shoulder not on your shoulder making it more difficult for anyone to snatch your bag.

Do not leave your bags/shopping bags unattended, this will help prevent theft and misplacing your bags.

If you are travelling by car to Birmingham ensure you are well prepared with maps and Sat Nav to aid your journey. Birmingham city centre can be confusing to those not familiar with the roads and there are a number of no entry roads in operation.

When parking it is advisable to ensure you fully the parking rules & regulations to avoid fines and penalties. Be especially careful at street parking bays, rules are not always clear they can be complex and building/development work in the area mean parking rules and regulation can and do change. If you are unsure, it is safer not park in the parking bay.
