The National Motorcycle Museums award winning facilities provides a truly unique venue for your conference, seminar, banquet or function. Breathtaking displays of literally hundreds of fully restored British motorcycles are on hand to provide an extra attraction to your delegates. We aim to offer more than a unique venue, however. We know that the success of any function is dependent upon the backing and support of an experienced and caring staff. 13 luxuriously appointed and newly renovated suites, ranging from just 5 to up to 1000 delegates offer the flexibility to suite most requirements. The National Motorcycle Museum is at the hub of the country’s motorway system and rail network, with Birmingham International railway station just five-minutes taxi ride away. Access from everywhere within the UK is direct and overseas visitors praise the excellent international services provided at Birmingham Airport, which is less than two miles in distance away. The National Exhibition Centre is also near the Museum complex and we offer vast car parking facilities.Many of our clients are ‘blue-chip’ companies from home and overseas. They come back to us time after time – we know you will too, and look forward to seeing you to discuss your requirements in the near future.

Excellent display of over 1000 MC's of brittish origin. Great facilities and very friendly staff. They even brought out a MC from 1942 for my son to sit on (-:

The amazing collection of British motorcycles is almost beyond belief. The quality is amazing with superb restorations of well known and obscure makes dating back to the start of motorcycling., a day is not enough to do it justice. All the staff are fantastic, friendly, helpful and knowledgeable. The only disappointment was that, due to a large corporate buffet taking... More

My husband and his friend were absolutely entranced with the place. So many bikes and some he had hardly heard of, let alone seen. Only £9 entrance which s a bargain for an enthusiast, and for the less interested there is a super restaurant/cafe on the top floor staffed by the most friendly and helpful young ladies it has ever...
