Public Transport

We have chosen the following route in conjunction with our mobility team.

Our starting point is at the mobility assistance point at Birmingham New Street.

* From the Mobility Assistance Point walk towards WH smith past the ticket office

* At WH smiths turn right and head towards the main entrance

* Walk to Moor Street Station via the pedestrian tunnel under the Bullring and catch a train to Widney Manor Station. Trains run at least every 20 minutes.

* Cross the footbridge at the station and walk to the number 5 bus stop at the end of the station drive. Number 5 busses run every 20 minutes.

* Catch the number 5 from the first stop you come to and get off at Cranmore Park.

* The venue is a short walk from the number 5 bus stop.

A quick note on alternative routes:

* You can get a taxi directly to the venue from Birmingham New Street. In this instance, we hope guides will be available to help you taxi share with other delegates where possible in order to keep individual costs to a minimum.

* You can get trains from Birmingham City Centre to Solihull or Shirley Stations and take a taxi to the venue from either of those.

We will provide guides where possible at the main gateways on route to the venue and of course, you can book travel assistance for some or all or your journey via the usual methods.
