By Road:

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 satnav 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 our signposted footpaths.

Keep up to date with what’s happening on the roads – plan your journey in advance and find out the latest traffic information when you’re here, available on Highways England’s website.

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.
