Getting here by road
George Cadbury Hall is on the Bristol Road (A38), three miles south west of the centre of Birmingham. If approaching from the city centre, pass Sainsbury’s supermarket on the right in Selly Oak, go through a set of traffic lights and George Cadbury Hall is about half a mile from here, set back on the left opposite Weoley Park Road. Pay and Display parking is available behind the theatre between the hours of 8.30 and 18.00 Monday to Friday. Parking is free after 18.00 weekdays and all day at the weekends.
If approaching from the south west, look for Bournville Lane Police Station on the right and a pedestrian footbridge overhead. After these there is a short hill, at the top of which you should see George Cadbury Hall on the right, just before Weoley Park Road on the left.
Getting here by train
From Birmingham New Street station connect to a local service to Selly Oak station and walk out onto the Bristol Road, turning left and walking about half a mile past Sainsbury’s.
