Welcome to the Roundhouse

Roundhouse Birmingham is an independent charity, and a pioneering partnership between the Canal & River Trust and the National Trust to bring an important Birmingham landmark back to life through an innovative blend of heritage and lettings.

A smiley welcome to National Trust Members

Thank you for visiting the Roundhouse Birmingham website, and showing interest in visiting our building.

What we do

Roundhouse Birmingham is an independent charity, delivering a range of bookable tours and activities which explore Birmingham on foot, by bike, and on water from our home: the grade II* listed Roundhouse.

What’s here for you

When you visit the Roundhouse, we will welcome you in our small Visitor Centre and Display Space. Take a look at the Things to Do page for bookable tours – we recommend making sure you see what’s on, and even booking, ahead of your visit to avoid disappointment. National Trust members receive a discount on tours. 

We don’t have an on-site café/restaurant for the foreseeable future. If you’re visiting us and would like to find somewhere to eat or drink, The Distillery is open from 12pm every day and is just next door. We also have picnic benches available at the Roundhouse and you’re also very welcome to bring your own food. 

What else is here

Most of the building is home to private office space for the National Trust, Canal & River Trust, and Sustrans. Income from these tenanted areas goes towards ensuring the sustainable future of the grade II* listed Roundhouse. For more information on the private office tenants, please see the Who’s Here page.
