Transportation in Birmingham


Birmingham's city centre is very walkable and usually the quickest way to get about. Around the canals, it's also the most pleasant way to see the sights. Brindleyplace and the Jewellery Quarter are about a kilometre from the city centre.

Birmingham's tangle of roads is scarier than it looks. It is busy but means easy access from most of the country. In the city itself, there are around 25,000 parking spaces, some operated by the park-and-pay-by-phone system. An up-to-date map or GPS does come in handy.

Transportation tips

For unlimited travel on bus, rail and metro, the NWM Daytripper ticket offers the best value. It is valid on weekdays after 9.30am, all weekend and on Bank Holiday Mondays. Travel West Midlands also issue off-peak Metro and bus day tickets. The Dayranger covers the more extensive West Midlands network. Remember that most city centre sights are easy to walk to.
