Once entering the station concourse, follow the escalators up to the Pallasades Shopping Centre towards New Street. At the bottom of the ramp (next to HSBC) take a left, across the road and continue down New Street until you come to Tesco (right hand side), turn right, and the Cathedral is at the top of the hill.
Birmingham Snow Hill Station
