Roundhouse Birmingham

view of roundhouse and cobbled courtyardThanks to National Lottery players, the National Trust and the Canal & River Trust are about to reimagine an extraordinary historic building in the heart of Birmingham.
Tucked next to the Birmingham New Main Line Canal, the Roundhouse is a horseshoe-shaped building, constructed in 1874. It was designed by architect WH Ward as a stables and stores, serving as the base for the City’s lamplighters and the horses of the Publics Works department.
Building work began in February 2019 to renovate this iconic, Grade II* Listed building, which will include a range of space for office, retail, and a cafe; as well as visitor hub from which to explore the city by foot, by bike and on water.
The Roundhouse will be open for visitors from spring 2020.
