Travel and Accommodation

Travel 

Rail
If you’re jumping on the train you’ll find three stations to choose from, all in the city centre, and all just a short walk from the ICC with New Street Station the closest. And because we’re part of the NEC Group you can get 20% off pre-booked ticket prices thanks to our fantastic partnership with Virgin Trains.

Air
Birmingham Airport is the only UK airport with a train station connected to the terminal, which means it takes just a ten-minute train ride to get into Birmingham New Street. If you’d prefer to jump in a taxi, you’ll find a rank directly outside the airport

Road
If you’re driving to the ICC, you’ll have no problems finding us as Birmingham is at the heart of the UK’s motorway networks, close to the M6, M5 and M42. And when you get here, you’ll find parking’s a walk in the park thanks to the thousands of spaces near to our venue. Our closest spaces are at our sister venue Arena Birmingham (King Edward’s Road, B1 2AA).  Mobile payments can be made upon arrival at the Arena car park via www.parkjockey.com/pay, quoting location code 5020.
