A City Connected

Known as the heart of England, Birmingham’s central location has always maintained strong country-wide connections, however the introduction of HS2 will elevate the city’s transport links to new levels. Curzon Street will be the fourth mainline station in the city. The high-speed service it provides will almost halve the journey time to London and significantly reduce travel times to the UK’s other major destinations.

The full spectrum of brands is now on offer from high end to high street, including Gucci, Dior, through to John Lewis and Zara.
