I thought I would share with you some of the most amazing street art we have recently discovered during our meanderings around Digbeth (a district of Central Birmingham) in search of real ale, food and art. Digbeth is dominated by old industrial buildings with some dating back as early as the 18th and 19th Century and was once the manufacturing heart of Birmingham due to its nearness to the River Rea, the Grand Union Canal, Digbeth Branch Canal and the arrival of the railways in the 19th Century at Moor Street Station. Today Digbeth is a cool and creative hub with galleries, pubs, bars, restaurants and independent shops taking up residence in converted factories such as the old Birds Custard Factory aka The Custard Factory which is at the heart of the regeneration of the area.
Walk round any corner and you will be met with pictures like this. Take a trip to Digbeth and explore the streets and see what you might find in the way of great beer, food and art.
