Directions from M6 – Please allow extra time for your journey from 27 June.
Follow the A38(M) for 2 miles (signs for the city centre). At the end of the motorway, take the flyover signed M5 South West. Coming off the flyover, pass under the tunnel following signs for Inner Ring Road South. Take the next tunnel (Queensway). Follow signs for Bromsgrove A38 which takes you to a third underpass. On surfacing get in the left hand lane and turn first left (Bromsgrove Street), go straight ahead and Arcadian Centre Parking is just on your left.
From June 27, 2016
There will be roadworks around the A38(M) Aston Expressway and M6 junction 6 from Monday 27 June. During the summer holidays (22 July to 5 September), there will be full weekend closures on both the Aston Expressway and M6 junction 6. If you travel to Birmingham on the Aston Expressway, your journey will be affected. We advise you to plan your journey and allow extra time for travel. Drivers will still be able to get into Birmingham via diversions and alternate routes.
Directions from M5
Going over the traffic lights at Bristol Street (McDonalds on your left), move into the left lane (signed BR New Street). Continue forward and move into the right hand lane. Turn full circle at this roundabout (Holloway Circus).
Traffic re-routing around Hurst Street
Traffic around the theatre is being temporarily re-routed. It is not currently possible to access Smallbrook Queensway or Hill Street via Ladywell Walk and Hurst Street.
This could cause some congestion, so it’s best to leave a little extra time for your visit to the theatre if travelling by car, especially if travelling to us from the North or West of the city.
Birmingham Hippodrome is within walking distance of New Street Station and Moor Street Station.
Directions from Moor St Station
On exiting Moor Street station, use the crossing on the left hand side, rather than the one to the right, and cross over the road towards the Bullring. Follow the road around to the right and walk underneath the underpass. On exiting the underpass, keep walking straight down the road past an entrance to the Bullring and Debenhams on your left hand side. Walk straight down to the traffic lights. Turn left here, crossing Smallbrook Queensway and onto Hurst Street. One hundred yards on the right side is the theatre.
Distance approximately 0.5 miles, 10 minute walk.
Directions from New St Station
When exiting on to the station concourse, please follow the exit signs for the Southside Exit. This exit will take you on to Hill Street and has both steps and a disabled lift. Cross over the road at the crossing point and turn left – towards the lower end of Hill Street. Carry on straight over the double crossing at the Smallbrook Queensway Junction and carry on to Hurst Street. The theatre is on your right. The walk is less than five minutes away from the station exit.
Birmingham Hippodrome is served by the following routes 2, 3, 5, 5A, 6, 16, 16A, 17, 24, 31,35, 37, 45, 47, 50, 58, 60, 61, 63, 80, 82, 87, 89, 97A, 120, 127, 128, 900, 957, and X64.

We are easy to find and have many car parks nearby that are clearly signposted.
We recommend parking at the APCOA Arcadian car park due to its close vicinity and ease of access to the theatre. APCOA Parking, The Arcadian Centre, 41 Bromsgrove St, Birmingham, B5 6NU
A pre-pay theatre flat rate of £6 (after 5pm until 2am) has been specially arranged for Hippodrome Patrons.
Please make sure that you are happy to leave your car at any car park in the area, as unfortunately we can’t accept responsibility should something happen.
We recommend The Arcadian Car Park on Bromsgrove Street that provides flat access to the theatre and pre-payment for easy exit.
Traffic Wardens regularly patrol Inge St, so if you are a Blue Badge Holder parking here, please try not to exceed the 3 hour limit as you may be clamped.
