Birmingham Training Day Venue

Venue address

The Bridge 
234 Stratford Road
B90 3AG


  • Just over a mile from Shirley train station
  • 20 minutes by train from Birmingham New Street (trains run every 20 minutes)
  • Buses every 10 minutes from Digbeth Coach Station (Birmingham City Centre)
  • 7 minutes by car from J4 of the M42


There is no free parking onsite (except for blue badge holders). There are two council-run carparks nearby, both of which charge £2 for the day (correct as of September 2018). We recommend using the carpark behind Shirley Methodist Church (post code B90 2AL) as this is the larger of the two). Please do not use the Morrisons or Aldi carparks as these will be time restricted and for customers only.
