To celebrate National Photography Day, we’ve rounded up the best spots in Digbeth to take the perfect shot!

As Birmingham’s Creative Quarter, it’s no surprise that Digbeth is one of the city’s most Instagrammable areas, with street art, independent bars and restaurants, iconic buildings and more.

Here’s some of our top picks for where to get your next picture in Digbeth:

Gibb Street

Home to the famous Custard Factory, Gibb Street is one of Digbeth’s most famous streets…and one of the best places for your next picture! There’s a brand new mural from Gent Art on the Greenhouse, Digbeth’s resident Green Man, along with more unmissable street art by Autobrew (including the new Ozzy Osbourne portrait!) and Arch 21.

Plus, visit Golf Fang and Birdies Bar for the ultimate night-out with plenty of photo opportunities, as well as NQ64 in the Courtyard for neon, retro vibes.

Floodgate Street

Floodgate Street is also a favourite of amateur to professional photographers, with Red Brick Market (the hub of independent traders), Factory Works and its bright yellow doors, the neon signs of The Floodgate, and fairy lights that illuminate the street come dark. 

Don’t forget to head under the arches too to spot more of Digbeth’s best street art!

Lower Trinity Street

Another iconic Digbeth location, the street art on Lower Trinity Street includes the Spiderman artwork outside Luna Springs (an Insta-worthy spot in itself!) and more pieces by Justin Sola and Broken Fingaz.

Other venues you want to visit for the best shots and a great time are Mama Roux’s and The Mill!

Fazeley Street

Since The Bond reopened earlier this year, this has been the go-to location for plenty of exciting events, and of course taking the best shot in Digbeth !
