Walking for Heritage; HMV Institute

The next stop on the route is the HMV Institute, just down the high street from the police station. Walk away from the city centre and you’ll see it!

The HMV Institute is now a music venue (and quite a good one at that), but it was originally built to be a Methodist chapel in the early 1900s.

The exterior of the building is very ornate – red brick and stone work – and there are some carved stone figures, all of which are different. More can be read on the Wiki page.

You can read more about Digbeth here. This is stop 5 of the Walking for Heritage route.
