The Contact Lens Practice is very easy to find as it is situated in 1st floor professional rooms immediately opposite New Street Station in central Birmingham. We are on the first floor over Caffè Nero on the corner of Lower Temple St & Stephenson St.
Birmingham is only difficult for those who think they remember it how it used to be.
Signs are good, both road and pedestrian, so follow these and you’ll find us easily!
For pedestrians with a GPS our co-ordinates are N52-47859 W1.89926 and our postcode is B2 4JD. Please note that you cannot use these when coming by car as we are in a pedestrian area.

Leaving the station, cross the road and follow the signs to the Bullring. Head up the steps to the left. By the large statue of a bull then head slightly right into New Street. Carry straight on past traffic lights by Waterstones Book shop. The next road on the left is Lower Temple Street. The entrance is next to the Shakespeare Pub on the left.
