If you’re driving to the ICC, you’ll have no problems finding it as Birmingham is at the heart of the UK’s motorway networks, close to the M6, M5 and M42. And when you get there, you’ll find parking’s a walk in the park thanks to the thousands of spaces near to the venue. The closest spaces are at Arena Birmingham (King Edward’s Road, B1 2AA). You can reserve your space in advance to save you the hassle of paying when you arrive. Mobile payments can be made via www.parkjockey.com/pay and quote location code 5020.
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 The ICC is part of the NEC Group you can get 25% off pre-booked ticket prices thanks to their fantastic partnership with Virgin Trains.
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.
With a wealth of landmarks to view along the way including the impressive Library of Birmingham, walking to the ICC from the city centre offers the most scenic route to the venue. From New Street head up to Victoria Square and follow the signs to Centenary Square, the ICC and Arena Birmingham. Enter Centenary Square and walk straight towards the ICC, passing the stunning Library of Birmingham and Rep Theatre on your right.
