As my previous one of the Bull wearing the Union Jack was so easy, lets try this one.

A little more difficult I think (I hope)

Sorry, wrong again.

Few clues

It is somewhere between Snow Hill Station, the Cathedral, and Birmingham Children's hospital.

It is also a building I have never really noticed before, I only saw it as I was strolling around Birmingham yesterday.

The building is also To Let (and has been for a while I think).

Correct, 42 Bull St, a building it is easy to walk past and not notice.

Just out of interest, is it art deco or 60s?

I was suprised when I found out my Uni (notts trent)-the Newton Building was built in the late 60s! Looks Art Deco! And feels as cold as an art deco building!

Have you been in there recently? To say it's had a bit of a makeover is a massive understatement. It's really cool
