Buildings of historic interest in the Balti Triangle area include Sparkhill Police Station which has a Police Museum (in Court Road ut only open 3 or 4 times a year); the Antelope Pub now a restaurant on the corner of Stratford Road/Baker St; Moseley Road School of Art (Grade II listed) and Moseley Road Public Library and Baths which is also Grade II listed both on the Moseley Road.

The oldest business on the Ladypool Road is Rajah Brothers. This supermarket, housed in an old Cinema building, is definitely worth a visit with a fantastic range of foods from around the world.

Religious places include St Johns Church in Sparkhill (Grade II listed), the Salvation Army Citadel on the Stratford road in Sparkhill, English Martyrs Roman Catholic School and Church (Evelyn Road) and slightly more recently the iconic Central Mosque in Balsall Heath, which was built by public donation at a cost of £35,000! Going further back in time to 1876, Birmingham City FC even had a ground just off the Ladypool Road!
