Harborne, a leafy suburb of Birmingham located approx 2 miles outside of the city centre; Otherwise known as the Chelsea of Birmingham . Harborne High Street is in walking distance of The Studio. I have a local gastro pub just down the road which serves good food and has a log fire in the winter or BBQ's in their spacious garden in the summer - and live music then too.
Harborne has a range of restaurants including Michelin starred 'Turners' and other chain restaurants - Pizza Express, Prezzo etc. Waitrose, Boots, Costa, Nero are all a 5 minute walk away. Restaurants range from Thai to Chinese, Italian, Indian, Pizza and fish and chips so there's no need to go into the city centre. Try Harborne Kitchen - our newest restaurant in Harborne. Favourite Pubs are The Plough, The New Inn.
The Studio is a 15 min walk from the University of Birmingham, The Queen Elizabeth Hospital and the University train station. Edgbaston cricket ground is nearby as is the new dental hospital at Pebble mill. The M5 motorway is a 7 minute drive away for access to the south .
Buses run up and down Harborne High Street every few minutes and run into town or to Birmingham University or to The Queen Elizabeth Hospital.
The nearest station is at Birmingham University - a 15/20 min walk from The Studio. New street station (now known as 'Grand Central station') is a 15 minute taxi ride away in the city centre. Buses also go from Harborne to New Street station.
There is a taxi company (TOA) on the same road. Uber taxis are popular if you have the app.
I can assist with bus numbers and bus top locations.
