WELCOME TO THE SHAKESPEARE FAMOUS FOR ORIGINAL VICTORIAN FEATURES IN THE HEART OF THE CITY You will find The Shakespeare in Lower Temple Street Birmingham within a short stroll of New Street Railway Station, Alexandra Theatre and Bull ring Shopping Centre - however you won't find another like it. Step in to discover a traditional pub of unique character, revered for its eclectic range of real ales and its quality pub food, which are served, as they should be, with a generous measure of famous British hospitality. A FASCINATING PAST Situated on Lower Temple Street, The Shakespeare is a Victorian building very much at the heart of the city and part of its daily life. Its proximity to New Street has ensured that Lower Temple Street has always been busy and present to a wide variety of trades over the years. Birmingham has developed dramatically since its early days which, around the time of the Domesday book (1083-1086) comprised 480 acres of land and was worth 20 shillings (£1). By the time of the English Civil War in the 17th century, Birmingham had become an important manufacturing town with a reputation for producing small arms. Arms manufacture in Birmingham became a staple trade and was concentrated in the area known as the Gun Quarter. The famous gun makers W. Powell and Sons, founded in 1802, were located close to Lower Temple Street, on Carrs Lane.
I’m not waiting there with a gun, but I am looking forward to seeing you there. Let me know if you plan to be there, or if you would like any more information, my contacts are:
