Latest Birmingham Airport parking reviews
It was very full but I managed to find a space!Bilal
Excellent location within short walk of NEC. Great price, would use againFiona
Very easy to book, find, get in and outCLAIRE
Went with this as I had seen other reviews of a 10 minute walk. When we arrived google maps was showing a route along the road of 47 minutes! When we manually entered the location we found the 10 minute route. We headed back out of the car park and turned right only to see a no pedestrian access and fencing blocking the road and pavement. To our right we saw people using a cut through at the side of the hotel. So the route to use was…as you face the hotel, follow it around to the left. There is a wooden fence with a gap (not far after the car park ends). Walk through the unused NEC car parks and it will bring you to the NEC. It is worth noting that this entrance is not for the main halls 1-5 and it is a further 10 minute walk inside the building. Would use again even though it was a little bit of a walk :)Ruth
A quiet, safe space for the car and very friendly owner. Be aware it involves crossing the busy A45 dual carriageway so it wouldn’t suit everyone, but it was perfect for me. Will definitely use again. (avoiding rush hour)Sally
Great place to park if going to the NEC only a few minutes walk to the main entrance. Also costs a lot less to park here than in the NEC car parks. Would definitely use again.Sandi
very easy to book, when we went to The Horse of the Year Show at the NEC on the 10th October 2021 we only had a short walk from the car park to the show, would definitely recommend.Tessa
Very good option for visiting the NEC. Easy to find. Lots of secure parking easy automated process for payment, entry and exist.Lynn
