The Photography Show & The Video Show is just a 5 minute walk from Birmingham International station. Birmingham International is 10 minutes from Birmingham New Street.

London is only 70 minutes away and trains also run direct to many regional towns and cities.

By car

It's really easy to get to the NEC from the M6, M1, M40 and M42.

The NEC has its own car parks, including a disabled parking area. Parking is £12 per day if booked in advance (£16 on the day).

Why not car share? If you belong to a camera club, organisation or institution, or if you're travelling down with friends, save money by travelling in a group.
