Arriving at the University of Birmingham
The easiest way to find the Bramall is to locate the clock tower, affectionately known as ‘Old Joe’, which you can see from most locations on the University’s Edgabston campus.
Once you’re at the foot of the clock tower, you’ll notice the semi-circle of red brick buildings ahead of you, known as Aston Webb which the Bramall is part of. The Bramall is the building to the left.
