Google Maps coordinates: 52.450361,-1.716415
The Hilton Birmingham Metropole is situated at the very heart of England and is easily accessible by road, rail and air just 200 yards from junction 6 of the M42 motorway and A45; Birmingham International Train Station – 10 minutes, Birmingham Airport – 10 minutes and London – 90 minutes.
Our host city of Birmingham needs little introduction, long being thought of as the UK’s “second city”. Whilst our Conference hotel is located outside of the city centre, there are frequent trains taking you straight into the city centre to explore local attractions. Shopping enthusiasts will enjoy the Bullring and Mailbox centres, chocaholics will surely be tempted by Cadbury’s World in Bournville, and culture vultures will have their work cut out with the galleries, theatre and Symphony Hall. For those wanting a slower pace of life, have a wander around the city’s canals (more miles of canal than Venice, I hear!) as Birmingham’s centre sees the convergence of the Grand Union Canal, Worcester and Birmingham Canal, Stourbridge Canal and Stratford Canal.
