Ten reasons to visit Moseley

Just a 15 minute drive from our City Centre Campus and a short bus ride from our City South Campus lies the hip suburb of Moseley. Home to several restaurants and cafés, Moseley is accessible through nearly all forms of transport!  

1) Cannon Hill Park

If you're in need of some fresh air, Cannon Hill Park is great for a stroll – that’s not all, you can do much more! If you fancy you can ride a swan pedal boat or visit the MAC (Midland Arts Centre) for cinema screenings, theatre performances, exhibitions and more!

2) Tickle your tastebuds

Moseley boasts a wealth of independent cafes and restaurants! From Lewis's to DamascenaJava Roastery to Cafephilia, there are loads of places to get a caffeine hit or a spot of lunch. Check out Zindiya for some delicious Indian street food or Sabai Sabai for a taste of Thailand.

3) Michelin star dining

If you're feeling flush, have an occasion to celebrate or just plain fancy trying something a little different, Carters offers Michelin star dining dreamt up in the heart of a born-and-bred Brummie, Brad Carter.

4) Get green-fingered

New kid on the block, The Jungle Club, is a treasure trove of tropical plants, cacti, and succulents - everything you need to start (or expand!) your houseplant collection. If you're new to the plant game, the friendly and knowledgable staff are always on hand to help you find the right addition to your home. 

5) Moseley Farmers Market

Moseley Farmer's Market has won awards and has lots of stalls offering a wide range of local produce on the last Saturday of every month. Regular favourites include Tan Rosie Caribbean, Kneale's Chocolates and Bake. 

6) Moseley Bog

The Moseley Bog is great for a stroll and is said to be where J.R.R. Tolkien got inspiration for the forests in The Lord of the Rings books. 

7) Moseley festivals

Twice a year Moseley's private park becomes home to two major music festivals, Mostly Jazz, Funk and Soul in July and the Moseley Folk & Arts Festival in September. Some major names have graced the stage here over the last few years, including The Proclaimers, Chic and Gregory Porter.

8) Try something new

Moseley has reputation for its fun and bohemian vibe. If you're feeling playful, there's the Midland's largest indoor skatepark,Creation, to let off some steam in. Or, if you want to leave the crash pads at home, you could always learn to fly with CircusMash or do it like Gatsby and learn to Charleston with The Swing Era.

9) The Prince of Wales

If you're after a proper pub, you can't go far wrong with The Prince of Wales. This place is steeped in history, built in 1860, but don't be fooled, there's nothing stuffy about it. The Prince has four bars, including a wine shed and a tiki shack, it also boasts one of the most impressive beer gardens in all of Brum, complete with big screen and patio heaters. What more could you want?

10) Moseley Road Baths

Fancy floating in a Grade II listed Edwardian swimming pool? Good news! Moseley Road has just that. Whether its a dip and a few lengths you're after, or something a bit more quirky, Moseley Road Baths has something for you. Enjoy a film from the comfort of your rubber ring, have a candelit float with Carpe Aqua or take in one of the visiting exhibitions. You never can tell what's coming next, so do check out the Moseley Road website for updates.
