By Car

You’ll find us clearly signposted from all motorways and major routes including the M42, M40 and M6 - just pop B40 1NT in your sat nav. When you arrive at the NEC don’t follow your sat nav anymore, look out for the show name you're visiting on our signs. Then, simply jump on our free shuttle bus or take a leisurely stroll along the signposted footpaths.

By Train

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. For more information, visit National Rail or call them on 08457 484950

NATIONAL RAIL

By Air

Simply take the free and fast air-rail link to Birmingham International Railway Station located at the upper level of Terminal 1. The train runs every two minutes and only takes 90 seconds. When you arrive just head straight through to the NEC.
