Your Guide to Southside
Southside is the name recently given to the Birmingham’s city centre. It utilises the B5 postcode. This is a vibrant and diverse area, and the heart of the city. The Hippodrome Theatre can be found here and it has stood for over one-hundred years. The area includes the city's Gay Village, a LGBT neighbourhood established in 2009 that hosts many stores, clubs and restaurants. The Chinese Quarter is another part of the town and it is home to a prominent Chinese community, and includes many examples of Chinese style architecture. The seven storey pagoda is a landmark in this part of the city.
