Mailbox opened in 1998 and was the redevelopment of the former Royal Mail sorting office in Birmingham City Centre. It is one of the UK’s largest mixed-use building incorporating retail, leisure, offices and residential in a well managed, security patrolled complex of the highest quality. The tenants include Malmaison and AC Hotels, the BBC Midlands headquarters, luxury retailers including Harvey Nichols, and a range of restaurants and bars. As Birmingham’s premier shopping and lifestyle destination the Mailbox is the ultimate location for designer shopping in the Midlands with international brands as well as chic salons & spas in one central Birmingham location.

Shopping area with Harvey Nichols and other high end shops. Car park is £2.50 per hour Lots of lovely restaurants to choose from and near the canal. Car park can be confusing. Remember which door you came out of!

This is one of many redeveloped buildings along the canal. Shops and bars make it a very popular place to enjoy your time.

Just spent 20 mins trying to find the way out. Sooooo many staircases and doors to building sites, locked corridors and empty rooms. Floor levels are extremely confusing. Very little signing.

Great location, great choice of bars and restaurants, lovely to come here on a sunny day, only downside is it’s a little bit expensive and there’s not anything for children to do but will come back and would recommend.

We were staying at a nearby hotel when we found out about this place. Lovely upmarket shops and lots of restaurant choice. Worth a visit.

We were just passing through The Mailbox and were delighted to discover the BBC exhibition. It’s a great place to spend an hour or so. As an Archers Addict I was unaware that you can look into the studio were they record each episode. Great...More
