In the 'Village' you will find a range of high street shops, chain-stores and independents - including Wilkinsons, several supermarkets, Dorothy Perkins, Works bookstore, Argos, and lots of pubs and restaurants (in a variety of cuisines & styles from Greek to Indian, and from Italian to Irish).

Although Acocks Green is a relaxed kind of place you will find there is plenty to do! We have a world-class yoga centre, a leisure centre with swimming pool, LaserQuest and bowling alley, and several parks and green spaces which are ideal for jogging or relaxing with the kids.

There's so much to do in Birmingham! We've got world-class shopping, arts, sports, entertainment (clubs, bars, concerts and gigs) and the possibility of exploring a Great British industrial and cultural heritage. Birmingham Museum and Art Galleries operates several fantastic cultural resources including the Birmingham Museum and Art Gallery itself where you can see an astounding public collection (and the world's biggest) of Pre-Raphaelite art including work by Burne-Jones and Dante Gabriel-Rosetti.

From high street to ultra-designer - Birmingham's shopping has something to please. Visit the Bullring for mid to upper high street outlets (including Selfridges and Debenhams), the Mailbox for high-end shopping (Harvey Nichols and Armani), or browse through the streets to see what delights you can find!
