History

Roundhouse Birmingham and moored barge

A hidden gem at the heart of the canal network

The unique style and shape of Roundhouse Birmingham was the result of a design competition organised by the Birmingham Corporation. It was won by famed local architect WH Ward, and in 1874 was completed as stabling for some of the many horses which worked the canals. Its distinctive horseshoe shape was immediately popular.
