NEC, Hall 18, Pendigo Way, Marston Green, Birmingham, West Midlands B40 1NT

How To Get There

If you are travelling by car, the NEC is in the perfect location for car travel – 8 miles east of Birmingham city centre, and at the heart of the UK motorway network. Please note that on Saturday only, junctions 6 to 7 of the M42 will be closed (northbound only) due to HS2 preparatory works. For Sat Nav purposes please use the postcode: B40 1NT. With 16,500 spaces available we’ve got plenty of room for you. Follow the electronic signage or directions provided by the traffic team to get you to the North Car Park which is being used for the event. Parking charges apply. You can pre-book parking to receive a discounted rate by clicking here. Once you’ve parked you can either take a free shuttle bus which will drop you off at Atrium 3 entrance or walk to the halls using our sign posted footpaths. Enter through the Atrium 3 entrance and The Autism Show is in Hall 18 directly in front of you. Disabled parking can be found by Hall 16 or North 1B which is accessible via Gate G3.

If you are travelling by train, the NEC is positioned immediately next to Birmingham International rail station. Once you alight from your train, follow signs for the NEC, and as you exit the station you will see the entrance leading into the venue on your right. Walk along the sky walk and descend the escalators or stairs into the main venue. Carry straight on, opposite 3a turn right where it will be sign posted to go up the escalators or stairs. Follow the skywalk along to the end and then use the escalators or stairs to go down, where the signs will direct you left towards the Autism Show in Hall 18. Many services run direct to Birmingham International. If yours doesn’t, you can catch a connecting train at Birmingham New Street. There are regular services, and the journey only takes 10-15 minutes. Buses to the NEC can be caught at Birmingham Moor Street and Solihull stations. For further information call National Rail enquiries on 08457 484950. National Rail

For a direct bus to the NEC, take the National Express bus X1 towards Coventry from bus stop MS17 beside Selfridges at Moor Street Station (a five minute walk from Birmingham New Street station).
