Getting to The Rainbow Courtyard

By car

The Rainbow is located on Digbeth high street, the nearest main road being the A45. Signs towards Digbeth should be available once in the Birmingham city centre area.


There are a few pay & display car parks dotted around the Digbeth area, though none closer than a short walk to The Rainbow. Advance planning is advised for first-time visitors due to Birmingham City Centre’s infamous one-way system.

By public transport

The Rainbow is slightly away from the rest of the town centre, but is a manageable twenty minute walk from Birmingham New Street station. It is also a five minute walk from Bordesley train station.

Many buses stop near The Rainbow, including the 6, 37, 73 and 900 bus routes, and many more stop further up the Digbeth high street or in the centre of town. For more information on public transport in the West Midlands, please visit
