Traffic Information

They say that all roads lead to Birmingham: it is the UK's second biggest city and also the hub from which many of the national motorways radiate. As a result, the city is easy to reach, but traffic can be heavy. Regular traffic updates are available online via services such as RAC. Speed restrictions on motorways aim to control traffic flow around the city's orbital motorway during busy periods.

The area also has England's only toll motorway, the M6, which is ideal for anyone travelling north from Birmingham, as less congestion means a faster journey. With 25,000 spaces, city centre parking is readily available, although this is much in demand at the weekend. For anyone who prefers not to drive into the city, three Park and Ride centres are available with regular transport into the centre. For more information on toll roads in Birmingham and the UK, visit our toll road guide.

Sixt Tips

Located in the very heart of England, Birmingham has a proud industrial heritage, but it is also now a vibrant, cosmopolitan city. Boasting two world class universities, an international cricket ground at Edgbaston, two football teams and the National Exhibition Centre, Birmingham is a busy international hub for sport, business, industry and education. With convenient links to the country's arterial motorway network, it is also an ideal city from which to tour all areas of the UK. For night owls, Birmingham offers a dusk till dawn nightlife, including theatres, comedy clubs and half a mile of pubs and bars on Broad Street.
