The Victoria Square in Birmingham, England

Let's visit part of Great Britain this time. I am featuring Birmingham, England in this article especially the famous Victoria Square. It is located near Chamberlain Square. It is a pedestrianised public square in Birmingham. This where the Town Hall and the Council House are also located. Three major roads, Colmore Row, New Street and Paradise Street meet there. It was formerly called as Council House Square but renamed to honour Queen Victoria on January 10, 1901.

Here are some images I took during my visit last 2008 in Birmingham, England.
