Jewellery Quarter featured in Past & Present Interactive Timeline

Reading Time: < 1 minute

Travelodge has created an interactive timeline that showcases how much Birmingham has evolved over time. With eight images of historic landmarks and notable areas in Birmingham, users have the opportunity to journey between past and present with a simple slider. Areas such as the Jewellery Quarter have only seen slight changes since 1980, while other areas like the Bull Ring have changed drastically since 1968. Additionally, the timeline includes Google Maps so users can see where each landmark or area is within the city as well as the hidden gems that other users have submitted.

To see more fascinating images please visit the Travelodge Evolving Cities website.
