Travel arrangements and other accommodation options

If you are making your own arrangements for travel
Birmingham Airport welcomes more than 50 airlines from over 100 destinations. Birmingham International station is right next door and from there the Metropole runs frequent shuttle buses for the short journey to the hotel.
For those coming by train, Birmingham New Street, Moor Street and Birmingham International stations connect directly with 84 towns and cities across the UK. Birmingham New Street alone has more direct connections than any other station. Then you just catch one of the frequent shuttle buses for the short journey to the Metropole.
By road, there is easy access to Birmingham from the M6, M6 Toll, M5, M42 and M54, and the final directions can be seen here.  

We will be providing you with a car park code to take advantage of reduced price parking, and there will be parking arrangements for anyone with mobility issues.
And once there, it is easy to get around and visit the region. There are local buses, trams and trains or you could even cycle on one of the dedicated cycle paths.
