Imposing church set in a spacious green square with cafes and restaurants set around the outside. Quiet and peaceful, with plenty of benches to sit on to enjoy the square. But it was spoilt for us because we could see no way in to see the interior.

Cannot believe another year has gone by. As Christmas starts here for us with this lovely concert. St Paul’s is a great venue for the music and performance by the choral singers of Ex Cathedra were excellent as usual. When we leave we always have a warm and happy feeling.

Walked around the grounds of the churchyard & wasn't able to take a look inside being locked, also a few small cafe's close by the surrounding area. Worth visiting this old beautiful church & shaded area, a few... More

The church is very cool. We walked around it and took some pictures. We didn't go inside but the architecture is cool. It is near some good pubs too if you enjoy a drink or too.

A nice quiet spot in the middle of bustling Birmingham. Happened upon this church as I was walking to the art museum. There was a steward inside to answer my questions about the church and point out things I would not have noticed on my own. I especially enjoyed the high, boxed pews. Reminds me of so many churches I... More

We had a look around the church when my Canadian partners parents came over. They got a guided tour by the caretaker who was very knowledgeable and they were extremely impressed! They... More
