Birmingham has such an eclectic vibe in the city center, it ranges from super modern to the old and historic. Hall of memory was an interesting structure to find while on an early morning walk. Good for those with an interest in history or architecture.

A place to look at records of those men and women who have given their lives in the service of their country. You can ask to see specific entries if you have family or friends listed there. A small, quiet space, fit for purpose.

The Hall of Memory war memorial is very well done. Both the outside and the inside are very poinient. There are seats inside so we were able to sit and think for a few minutes.

How nice to see such a historic monument to the First World War - albeit right by the new library which has very modern architecture. A small building, so be careful not to miss it. As they say, we should not forget those that gave...More
