Welcome to the Jewellery Quarter

Home to over 700 jewellers and independent retailers, a thriving food and drink scene and an area steeped in incredible history, the Jewellery Quarter is one of the UK's most unique destinations.

In addition to running a Business Improvement District for the Jewellery Quarter, the JQDT works hard to secure outside investment for the area and continues to protect its heritage through the National Lottery Heritage Fund schemes.
