This area of unique character has been described by English Heritage as a 'national treasure' and as having a 'particular combination of structures associated with jewellery and metalworking which does not seem to exist anywhere else in the world'

History on every street and at every corner

The Jewellery Quarter is well defined and historically referred to as the Hockley area. However, the Jewellery Quarter Business Improvement District (JQ BID) extends far beyond this. In fact it covers 300 acres, making it the largest BID area in Birmingham. The JQ BID area is bounded by the JQ side of Great Charles Street, Livery Street, Great Hampton Street, Hockley Hill, Key Hill Drive, Icknield Street, Sandpits and Summer Row.  The area includes St Paul’s, the main Jewellery Quarter shopping and manufacturing areas, and all the strategically important areas that connect the Quarter to the city centre and Hockley.

With such a large area and a diverse mix of business uses, this area rightly deserves its affectionate nickname ‘Birmingham’s Gem’.  Its future depends on the community working together to preserve its heritage as well as adding to its history.

Here’s a snapshot of what makes the Jewellery Quarter so unique.
