Traffic Information

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.

Stratford-upon-Avon

To visit to the area would be complete without a trip to Stratford-upon-Avon, home to England's greatest playwright, William Shakespeare. Absorb the atmosphere of the Tudor town as you visit his birthplace, the school which he attended, and Ann Hathaway's Cottage, his wife's family home. End the day by taking in a production at the world famous theatre which is home to the Royal Shakespeare Company.

Like many English cities Birmingham comes alive during the summer. Based in the middle of England there are a lot of outdoor activities and events to enjoy. The sea might be far away but the beaches aren’t. Take the family to an exciting water park located on lakes and sandy beaches. The Cotswold Water Park is beautifully located and has a floating obstacle course. Of course, other amusements are nearby such as Alton Towers, filled with country’s best roller-coasters, an incredible hotel and all-round great place to spend summer days and evenings with shows and spectacles.
