How to Get To the NEC, Birmingham:


If you’re travelling by car the NEC is situated just off the motorway around 8 miles east of the centre of Birmingham. Don’t forget that you will need to pay for parking at the NEC and a free shuttle bus will take you to the entrance. For disabled visitors, there will be plenty of car parking spots nearer the entrance to the halls. Everything is clearly signposted and there are always plenty of attendants you can ask for directions should you need to.
