ACCOMMODATION

STAYING OVER

Staying here

If you plan to visit the show for more than one day, or are visiting as part of a long/weekend away in the Midlands then there is an enormous choice of hotels and guest houses in the region.

 

Staying Onsite

There are four hotels directly onsite at the NEC with varying pricing. We have listed the links to their websites for your information.

You could also consider staying offsite as there is so much choice within just 10-20 mins of the NEC. 
 

Onsite Hotels

The Hilton Birmingham Metropole Hotel

0121-780-4242

This is a four star hotel. It’s very convenient for the show, being just a short walk over to the halls. it has a swimming pool and spa.
