The History of The Bull Ring


In the Domesday Book of 1086, Birmingham was valued at just one pound. The were nine families living around a village green where cattle were tethered. This was the very heart of the tiny medieval community, and, almost 1000 years later, as the Bull Ring, is at the heart of Britain’s second city.

This is the fascinating story of Birmingham’s historic core and all of its components, St Martin’s Church, its thriving markets, its streets, its pubs, its buildings and of course, the people, that down through the ages, have all played their vital part.

The history, heritage and atmosphere of the Bull Ring are brought to life with unique archive film, photos, sketches, up to date film and interviews with people who remember the Bull Ring of old, making this a must for anyone with an interest in Birmingham.
