A day in Digbeth


Start the day right with breakfast at Kanteen

And their mouthwatering food is made with care using fresh, seasonal ingredients – the ultimate way to start your day off right!


Check out the maker talent at Red Brick Market

Red Brick Market is an independent indoor market located on Floodgate Street. It is home to a variety of small businesses and super-talented Brummie makers & creators, selling everything from sustainable fashion, homewares, gifts, and quirky finds. The acclaimed market is open from 10am to 6pm Monday to Friday and 10am to 5pm on Sunday.


Head to Arch 21 to visit Ridding & Wynn

If the visit to Red Brick Market has piqued your interest in discovering unique items in Birmingham’s Creative Quarter, pop into Ridding & Wynn under the Victorian Railway arches on Gibb Street. The independent emporium sells hard-to-find homeware, gifts, and curiosities to add a bit of glam to your home.


The Custard Factory hits the midday sweet spot

Did you know that there are bees on the Custard Factory roof? And did you know that the honey produced by the bees is sold in the Digbeth reception on Gibb Street? Pick up a jar of Bee9 for £5. And ask our front of house team for a Destination Digbeth map! The handy map will introduce you to all the places that you need to visit in the area – you will need to come back!

The Custard Factory



Get competitive at Chance & Counters

Love Scrabble? Are you the top dog at Jenga? Chance & Counters is a board game café in The Courtyard of the Custard Factory with a wide selection of games (there are over 600 games) to choose from. The atmosphere is relaxed and friendly, making it a great place to enjoy a spot of lunch before engaging in some epic lunchtime battles with friends. 


Get a trim

To cheer yourself up after losing consecutive games of Connect 4 and Buckeroo, an appointment at Strand & Lock or Kutta will give you a stylish make-over for the night ahead.


The cheapest cinema in Birmingham

The Mockingbird Cinema is a “must visit” if you want to watch summer blockbusters at wallet/purse-friendly prices. The fully independent cinema is, of course, also the place to check out cult movies, retro classics, and the odd epic movie marathon here in Brum. A haven for movie buffs.


Dinner time

A treat for your taste buds! Kray Treadwell first found fame on BBC 2’s Great British Menu. The preposterously talented chef has now got foodies clambering to Digbeth to try his latest dishes at the highly acclaimed 670 Grams restaurant on Gibb Street.


And now’s the time for a drink

Luna Springs on Lower Trinity Street has been hosting large events - such as open-air film screenings, karaoke, Bingo Lingo, and bottomless brunches - throughout the summer. Check out their What’s On page to see what the outdoor venue has got planned.
