The Barber Institute is just three miles from the centre of Birmingham and is easily accessible by bus, train and car.
There are frequent buses from the city centre past the bottom of Edgbaston Park Road (61 & 63 operated by National Express West Midlands).
Birmingham is easily reached in about two hours from central London by rail. It is substantially cheaper to book train tickets in advance either directly from the station or online.
The University has its own train station which is a 10-minute walk from the Barber Institute across the main University campus – turn left on exiting the station and follow signs. Cross-City Line trains leave New Street station regularly (direction Longbridge/Redditch) and take approximately 10 minutes to travel the two stops. Check train times and buy tickets
Take the A38 (Bristol Road), turning onto Edgbaston Park Road, where you will see the Barber Institute at the top of the hill on the left, at the main East Gate of the University and facing the road. Parking is available in the University’s North-East Car Park, accessed via Pritchatts Road (first road off Edgbaston Park Road to the left, after the Barber Institute – sat-nav postcode B15 2SA) – a five-minute walk away.
Birmingham is very well served for a range of hotels and bed and breakfast accommodations
