We visited the Custard Factory to attend a sample sale but did look around after we had purchased ( Not a lot in this case - too expensive) the shops looked interesting and the prices were reasonable for items "not on the high street" and the bars were good.

I love to see old factories used for other purposes rather than left derelict or pulled down. Love the custard that used to be made here too so it was fun to visit and reminisce about childhood puddings! Not too many shops open but there was a Vintage by Kilo sale so was busy.

Strange, we are used to everywhere especially places in cities being open on Sunday's. But everywhere at the Custard Factory was closed. Only a photographer open. Vintage shop has closed and not a lot else to look at. Very disappointing.
One of my absolute favourite parts of Birmingham as it is overflowing with creativity. The custard factory houses a wonderful selection of cafes and stores to each taste. Events are often held here such as the Vintage Kilo Sale or the Record Sale that attract hundreds of people to its location from different parts of Birmingham. Due to the ever-changing... 更多
Whilst my wife and I was visiting the City Centre again we thought we would stroll down to the Custard Factory as it was only 10 mins from Moor Street Station and having meaning to do it for many other times. We found it rather a let down and not quite what we expected as there was many empty units... 更多
