Getting to Queen’s: Coming by rail
Arrive at Birmingham New Street, and look for trains stopping at University. This is two stops on the local line toward Longbridge. Trains are normally every 15 minutes. From University it is a 10 minute walk to Queen’s.To get from University exit the station and turn right. At the roundabout, turn right again down Vincent Drive. Go across the next mini roundabout on to Farquhar Road, and at the next T junction turn left into Somerset Road. After 50 yards, the main entrance to Queen’s is on your left. Follow the signs to Reception.

Coming by car:
The Queen’s Foundation is next to the Nuffield Hospital which is quite well signposted once you get close to Edgbaston. Parking at Queen’s is limited, but spaces are usually available in adjacent streets. The address is Somerset Road, Edgbaston, Birmingham B15 2QH.

Coming by bus:

From the City centre next to St Philip's Cathedral the No 21 bus takes you to the corner of Pritchards Road and Farquhar Road, next to the Queen Elizabeth Hospital. Walk 100 yards down Farquhar Road, turn left at the crossroads into Somerset Road, and the entrance to the Queen's Foundation is immediately on your left.
