Driving to and Parking at Birmingham Citadel

Drivers can no longer approach our Building from the Snow Hill/William Booth Centre end of Shadwell Street and will need use Loveday Street/Lower Loveday Street or the A34/Princip Street route. The parking bays on Shadwell Street have been removed.
These road changes will be in effect until at least November 2021.
The postal address is 24, St Chads Queensway, Birmingham B4 6HH. This address is on a busy dual carriageway where there is no parking or drop off unless you have a disabled blue badge. This is also the border between City Centre parking and Outer Area Parking. If you park inside the City Centre area, the charges are currently £3.50 per 1/2 hour.
Google Maps SatNavs will direct you to Little Shadwell St using the postcode B4 6HH.
Other SatNavs will direct you to Little Shadwell St using the postcode B4 6HG.
To park safely please head to Little Shadwell Street and Bath Street.
On Street Parking Bays are marked all around this area, and we are inside a controlled zone where payment is required between 08:00 and 18:00 Monday to Saturday.
You can ONLY park on a SINGLE YELLOW LINE between 18:00 – 08:00 7 DAYS A WEEK.
There is a surface car park on Bath Street. This privately owned car park is payable 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
Here is a list of streets where parking bays are available within walking distance:
Little Shadwell St, Bath St, Loveday St, Princip St, Vesey St, Price St, Lower Loveday St, Cliveland St.
There is a secure parking car park accessed from Weaman St, Birmingham B4 6DG. This is a 5 minute walk from the Hall. If you sign up for free online before going to this car park then you benefit from discounted parking fees.
Once again we wish to remind you that single Yellow Line parking is vociferously enforced by Birmingham City Council Parking Wardens, even on Sunday, so parking on these lines before 18:00 will risk a Penalty Charge being attached to your car.
We hope and pray that this note will help you find safe parking when you visit Birmingham Citadel and not spoil your experience by receiving a parking ticket due to not being aware of the parking rules enforced around our building.
By Train/Tram
There are three main train stations in the City Centre, New Street, Moor Street and Snow Hill. Our building is a 10-15 minute walk from all of these stations. You can also take the Tram from New Street  Station to the St Chads stop and then walk from there. At present the Tram (Metro) runs from Wolverhampton to New Street, but will soon continue to Five Ways (Broad Street).
The City Centre Bus services drop off passengers all around the outside of the City Centre, so depending on where the bus stop is situated means anything from 5 – 15 minutes to walk to our Building.
