1. Waterstones

"Brilliant customer service from Adam. We were one book short of the set for my daughter's birthday present. Adam certainly knew his stuff and was determined to find the missing title. Which he did! Conjured it up like a magician from some obscure corner of stock. We were suitably impressed and want everyone to know."

"In its fiftieth year - in different locations across the city - Ikon is a welcome survivor in the cultural landscape of Birmingham. Exhibitions are always interesting, thought-provoking, and enjoyable. The staff, both in the gallery, the cafe, and the shop are always friendly, polite, engaging. Ikon is a real cultural gem and it's great that everything they have to offer is free ... such an asset for the city. If you're visiting Birmingham, visit Ikon."
