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 us our freedom.

A charming classically inspired pavilion now situated as a principal building in Birmingham's Centenary Square, this fine Portland stone structure was erected by public subscription between the First and Second World Wars and exhibits touches of Art Deco inspired ornamentation to compliment the fine bronze statues on the four principal faces of the building. A fitting tribute, which survived the... More

A lovely little monument and quiet place to reflect in the middle of the busy city. Serene and impressive architecture all around the building.

This was a good way to immortalise all the fallen from Birmingham and around, better than a cenotaph or obelisk.

The hall of memory is very small but worth a visit if you are passing for the rep, ICC or the library. It is open from 10 until 4pm and allows you to see the memorial to fallen soldiers from the first and second world wars. Pay your respects for 5 minutes.

Went inside the hall for first time to pay respects on armistice day having walked past many times. It is a small building near the central library with a pretty ceiling and marble effects. It is a place for quiet reflection. It could benefit from having more computer interaction. Open only during limited hours in the middle of the day... More

This is a beautiful area. Quiet and peaceful, giving time to reflect. There are memorials to specific people who lost their lives and in side there were poppy wreaths from all over the city. The flowers on the outside are gorgeous too.
