The show is open from 10am to 5pm on Tuesday 17th and Wednesday 18th March 2020. There are a number of ways to get to the NEC, and we’ve got all the key information below to help make your journey as easy as possible. For further information you can visit the NEC Visitor Info page.
How to Get There
The NEC is in the perfect location for car travel (8 miles east of Birmingham city centre) and at the heart of the UK motorway network, with 75% of the UK can get to the NEC within a 3 hour drive. Car parking options are also available.
Many services run direct to Birmingham International and there is a Shuttle Bus running from the Birmingham International Rail Station to the NEC venue entrance. The NEC entrance is on the right hand side as you exit the station, and is clearly signposted. For further information visit National Rail or Network West Midlands.
By Bus & Coach
Coach services are operated by National Express and Megabus from across the UK to Birmingham Airport. From here you can get to the NEC via the free air-rail link, which takes just 90 seconds and runs every two minutes. If you’re travelling from Birmingham City Centre, you’ll want the X1 service or the 97A. Local bus services also run every 30 mins throughout the day to Solihull (service 966) and Coventry (service 900).
NEC has teamed up with TOA Taxis to ensure a safe, friendly service is available to you 24/7 at the NEC. You can book over the phone by calling 0121 427 8888 or 0800 0142 729, online or via their handy app. Alternatively, pick one up at the clearly marked ranks outside the NEC main entrances.
