Getting here

The NEC is accessible by numerous transport options:

You’ll find the NEC clearly signposted from all motorways and major routes including the M42, M40 and M6 – just pop B40 1NT in your sat nav to get to the NEC Site. Once on site please stop using your Sat Nav and follow the digital screens to direct you to the car park. 

After parking, simply jump on the free shuttle bus, or take a leisurely stroll along the signposted footpaths. 

The post code will not take you to the car park for the event, so please ignore your Sat Nav and follow signage instead. 

Keep up to date with what’s happening on the roads – plan your journey in advance and find out the latest traffic information when you’re here, available on Highways England’s website.

The best and safest way to get to the NEC by your own steam is to use the shared cycle footpath route to Birmingham International Railway Station and then the NEC is a short walk from there, it should take you about 10 minutes.

You won’t even need to brave the elements. Direct services run all day, however if you’re travelling from further afield you may need to catch a connecting train at Birmingham New Street, which is less than a 15-minute journey away. Just enough time to fuel up on caffeine!
