Parking at the NEC

PRE-BOOK YOUR PARKING AT THE NEC TODAY!

When it comes to event parking, it’s rare to be spoilt for choice. Yet with over 16,500 spaces available you won’t need to search for a spot - once your satnav has brought you to the NEC, follow the signs for the show you're visiting.

You can pre-book your parking space well in advance of your event, simply follow the selected "Book Parking" link below. Don’t forget, some shows include standard parking in the ticket price so always check before booking.

Parking at the NEC is entirely cashless. Only card payment is accepted at our parking machines, but we highly recommend you book your parking space online in advance, saving you time and money!

*Pre-Booked Parking is only valid in NEC operated car parks and not valid in Resorts World operated car parks at the NEC. Follow the signs when you arrive.
