How to find Roundhouse Birmingham.

We are aware of an ongoing problem with our location on Googlemaps and are trying to work with Google to rectify this. Please be aware that we are on the corner of Sheepcote Street and St Vincent Street and not on Grosvenor Street West.

Please use the map below rather than your google app or use this link

We will be closed from 4.30pm Friday 16 December 2022 until 9.30am Wednesday 11 January 2023.

Enjoy authentic Italian food at Ristorante Caffe Arena. A great place for lunch after one of our tours, or for a coffee and a catch-up if you’re just popping in. Visit their website for more details. 

It’s a picturesque short walk from Brindley Place to the Roundhouse. Watch the video to see how close we are to the Sea Life Centre, Lego Discovery Centre and the Utilita Arena.

The easiest way to get to us is by public transport. Expand the drop-downs below for directions, but give us a call if you need further help.

Buses run past the Roundhouse throughout the day. Visit networkwestmidlands for more details or see below. If you’ve travelled by coach to Digbeth coach station, the Roundhouse is a 30-minute walk.

The West Midlands Metro and West Midlands bus networks are a good alternative to the train if you’re travelling between Wolverhampton and Birmingham and making local journeys. The Metro station is situated in the centre of Birmingham. Please follow walking routes from Birmingham New Street train station if planning to arrive by Metro.


  • New Street Station has multiple exits. Start by looking at the main departure boards, and make your way up the ramp to the right, passing Greggs and out onto Stephenson St.
  • Walk up Lower Temple St, continuing onto Temple St (Tesco Express will be on your right), until you get to Temple Row at the top of the hill. 
  • Walk through the park, round the Cathedral, onto Colmore Row.
  • Catch the bus from Colmore Row – buses 9, 12, 13a, 23, and 24 all pass the Roundhouse.
  • Ride about 8 minutes until St Vincent Street stop (which is actually on Sheepcote Street, just after the junction!).
  • The Roundhouse is opposite the bus stop to the right – look out for the yellow smiley logos hanging on the building. 
  • The public entrance is on the corner of St Vincent Street and Sheepcote Street.
