Being the UK's second largest city, Birmingham has a comprehensive road network. However, city driving can be more challenging here than in smaller cities or rural areas of the UK, due to the volume of traffic, particularly at peak times.

Driving is on the left-hand side, just like the rest of the country, and the speed limits are as follows:

  • 30 mph (48 km/h) in built-up areas
  • 60 mph (97 km/h) on single carriageways
  • 70 mph (112 km/h) on dual carriageways and motorways

Remember to always watch out for speed cameras and changing speed limits.

Parking in Birmingham

Finding a parking space in Birmingham city centre can be quite a challenge, especially during peak times. Many car parks and some street parking are available but can get busy. It's advisable to use the city's park and ride facilities.

Car Class Recommendations

Choosing the right car can enhance your Birmingham experience. A compact car is perfect for zipping around the city. If you plan to explore the lush countryside, a SUV or larger family car could be more comfortable.

Attractions

Birmingham is packed with historical landmarks, beautiful parks, and vibrant shopping districts. Don’t miss the Bullring Shopping Centre, the Birmingham Museum and Art Gallery, and the city's iconic Cadbury World. If you prefer green spaces, visit the Birmingham Botanical Gardens or drive out to the Clent Hills for stunning views.

Birmingham and Beyond

Renting a car offers the freedom to explore Birmingham's surroundings. The picturesque towns of Warwick and Stratford-upon-Avon, the birthplace of William Shakespeare, are just a drive away.

Climate

Birmingham has a temperate maritime climate just like most of the UK, with moderate temperatures all year round. Remember to pack an umbrella as rain is quite common!

No matter which part of the city or the surrounding area you're heading to, having a rental car at your disposal will make your stay in Birmingham all the more enjoyable. Drive safe and enjoy!
