Birmingham Comic Con 2022: How to get there
Birmingham MCM Comic Con 2022 is fast approaching! Here’s what you need to know to get to the event.
With Comic-Con along the way, people across the land will gear up in their power armor for another weekend of corny fun. Unfortunately, you can’t be teleported by Scotty to the NEC – so what are the best ways to get there?
Fortunately, the NEC has no shortage of useful transportation links to help you get there with your Zelda cosplay intact.
Whether you’re traveling by bus, train or car, we’ll detail the most efficient ways to get to the site as well as where to park.
The NEC has its own car parks, in which you can reserve a space for one day, two days or for the duration of the weekend. While some are full, the standard NEC car park still has room for reservations.
In the meantime, if you come by train, birmingham has two stations from which you can reach the event. Birmingham International Station is a short walk away, while you will need to take a train, bus or taxi from Birmingham New Street.
Comic-Con Birmingham 2022 car park
You can reserve a parking space with NEC on the CEN website. To park for a single day in the standard NEC car park it will cost you £12.85. Two days will cost £25.70, while parking for the full three-day duration of the event costs £38.55.
How to get to Comic Con by train or bus
If you’re going to Comic Con by train, it’s best to book a ticket to Birmingham International Station, which is about a 20-minute walk away, according to Google Maps.
As Birmingham International Station does not have extensive transport links outside of Birmingham, you may need to take a train to Birmingham New Street.
From there you can either take a train to Birmingham International, take the bus or take a taxi. By car, the journey will take you approximately 21 minutes.
There is also a bus stop outside Birmingham International Station. This is the closest bus stop to the NEC – so if you plan to travel to the event by bus, this will be your best option.
