Birmingham is the second-largest city in England. It began as a Saxon village. In the early 12th century it grew into a town. In 1166 the King gave the Lord of the Manor, Peter De Bermingham, the right to hold a weekly market at Birmingham.
The Rag Market in the centre of Birmingham’s Bullring is the place to find everything you need under one roof. Over 350 stalls, selling an eclectic mix of fashion, gifts, perfumes and accessories, along with the best selection of fabrics in the city.
The Market has a long held reputation for being a must-visit place when shopping in the city, with a cool alternative feel that has always been a big draw for students looking for some cool clothing or bargain hunters looking to make their hard earned cash go that bit further.
