Travel & Accommodation
Birmingham is an easily accessible city.
The city centre is a short 30 minute car journey from Birmingham Airport or 15 minutes by rail.
The city is served by three train stations (New Street, Moor Street and Snow Hill), with direct trains running from all major cities cross the UK. Trains running from London Euston are 1 hour 25 minutes and run three times an hour.
The city is well served with black cabs, mini cabs and uber. By road the city can be accessed from the north via the M6, the south via the M40 or M1, M6 and the South West via the M5.
Most venues are walking distance from each other and from the Festival Hub, they are city centre based but do always check the route and leave yourselves plenty of time to get around.
Our Fierce Festival team will be on hand to give you directions and help you find your way around, so ask for help whenever you need it. mac is a couple of miles outside the city centre, and is easily accessible by bus; you can get to mac on buses 1, 35, 45, 47, 62 and 63 (depending on where you’re leaving from).
Hatters Hostel in the Jewellery Quarter is a favourite haunt and near to AE Harris which hosts a number of works.
Birmingham Backpackers Hostel is more basic but just round the corner from our Festival Hub.
Cheap chain hotels include the recently opened Easyhotel on John Bright Street and Bloc on Caroline Street in the trendy Jewellery Quarter area. There’s also an Ibis Budget and depending on who you ask The Paragon Hotel is okay for a couple of nights.
Many of the regular hotel chains can be found in the city including Travelodge, Holiday Inn, Premier Inn, Jury’s Inn, Holiday Inn Express, Ibis, Crown Plaza and Hampton by Hilton.
For a more bougie stay try Penta Hotel, Hotel de la Tour, Hotel de Van, Radission Blu, St Paul’s House or Staying Cool apartments at the top of Birmingham’s iconic Rotunda.
