With 200 listed buildings, the Jewellery Quarter is undeniably one of the most attractive places to live and work in the city of Birmingham.

The manufacturing industry is still thriving today with the Quarter producing 40% of all the jewellery made in the UK.
Since its industrial start, the area has attracted significant investment and restoration and is now home to a bustling food & beverage scene. Bars and modern eateries line the streets up to St Pauls Quarter along with indie stores and galleries attracting trendy, young professionals from across the city.
Originally constructed as a toolmaker works for Henry Jenkins and Sons,the grade II listed building was extended in 1898 seeing silverware makers occupy the premises. By 1914 with the rise of WWI, the building was adapted into an arsenal, producing over 1 million rifles to aid the British troops during the war years. Throughout its lifetime of manufacturing, the building has seen six monarchs and the start and end of the industrial revolution which made Birmingham a global powerhouse in the industry.
