NEC Center

by zmvc

Hi.

What is the fast and cheapest way of getting from Formula 1 Hotel to the Nec Center?

The hotel is on 3,
Bordesley Park Road
Small Heath Highway
B10 OPD Birmingham

many thanks

Re: NEC Center

by brazzi

58 bus passes small heath and goes to nec,
it is probably the cheapest, shouldnt take more than about 20 mins??

Re: NEC Center

The fastest way will be by taxi, but it won't be the cheapest (that will be the bus).

The journey planner on:

http://www.travelinemidlands.co.uk/JourneyPlanner.jsp?vm_Reset_str=true

suggests that you will need to change buses, whether you search for departures from 'bordesley green road' or 'small heath highway'. The journeyplanner doesn't recognise the postcode, for some reason. The hotel staff should be able to tell you where to catch the 58 bus, if that's the direct option (might involve a walk).

Hi,

Bus 58 stops around the corner from the hotel near the Aldi Supermarket on Coventry Road and runs every 30mins throughout the day.

Faster is Bus 900 but the stop isn't close to the hotel, it travels past the hotel on the Dual Carriageway but doesn't stop so you'll have to walk towards the City Centre for about 10mins to the bus stop it uses.

The timetable can be viewed at

for the 58 service

Travel Tips for Birmingham

I, like many other visitors to...

by gabriellefox

I, like many other visitors to Birmingham arrive to go to one of the many conferences or Exhibitions held at either the International Convention Centre, or the National Exhibition Centre. There are however many other places worth exploring. During the industrial revolution, as the importance of Birmingham grew, the canals became a great feature of the area. These have been extensively refurbished, as part of a massive urban regeneration programme. The centre of the city, and especially the area around the Canals' Gas Street Basin, has become a popular attraction and abounds with bars and restaurants.

Centrally located

by leffe3

Birmingham is slap bang in the middle of England. With an excellent public transport system, there are literally hundreds of locations within a hour or so of the CBD by train or bus. Hiring a car makes the more inaccessible or less well-served-by-public-transport places easily reached.

The immediate vicinity is rich in English history - Shakespeare's Stratford is an hour away, with the historic castle town of Warwick on the same train line, even closer to Birmingham. If castles are your schtick, then a few miles from Warwick is Kenilworth, another stately pile. And in the other direction to the north and west are Dudley and Tamworth castles. The cathedral city of Lichfield is 40 minutes by train to the north and the historic and picturesque city of Worcester (along with Great Malvern and Evesham) is 70 minutes south west. Industrial history is well represented with the Black Country (named after the coal and heavy industries of the Victorian period) - the corridor between Birmingham and Wolverhampton.

And then there's the beautiful, if unspectacular, countryside and the small historic villages and a plethora of National Trust and English Heritage properties. Country pubs, gastronomic restaurants, village greens etc...

I'll add places as I go along with seperate tips as well as create thier own pages.

Bull Ring Open Market

by graeme83 about Bull Ring

This is the main open area behind the Bull Ring Centre. You can buy all the fruit and veg that you want at very low prices compared to the supermarkets. It is open from 9am to 5pm every Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday. The best time to get there is probably just after 4pm. At this time you can pick up all the bargains. The stall holders would rather sell everything they have left for a pound than carry it all home ;)

A blissful hideaway...

by dazhewitt about Orange Studio

This place is hidden away behind an Mobile phone store - it has a roof garden and tends to be quiet even during busy shopping days - as not too many people know about it.

They serve fantastic sandwiches and snacks - great for stopping off after a busy shop - modern surroundings and internet terminals if you want one (for a charge)

The Orange studio also provides meeting and conference services. Anything that comes with parsnip crisps!
