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.

Being a motorcycle fanatic this is as good as it gets. I have never been a Brit only fan but if you are an enthusiast and follow the history it is a great place to visit. The sad part is to see the innovation within the industry but it was not followed up. All the best to triumph I hope... More

Very interesting collection of motorcycles in the first place, but with some nice pictures through history also. Nice guided tour. We visited the museum for good 3 hours and went to Coventry afterwards with also a very nice transport museum and several places of interest.

We love motorbikes & to see such a mighty collection of British bikes from the very earliest pre-1900 examples to modern era famous racing bikes was an excellent way to spend a day in the Midlands. Deep joy!

Honestly, what can you say about this place? Anyone passing here and not taking the time for it (and it's not far from the motorway) should be ashamed. The most beautiful motorbikes ever built are on display here. The place itself is quite small, and if they once move to a facility three times the size they'd still have enough... More

More than enough to interest a 'Jap' bike fan, even though all British content. If you think you can't see enough bikes, then this will give you your fill. Guided tour also now being run (for free), which points out some of the more interesting exhibits, without having to read the accompanying placard. Being a bike museum, I thought there... More

We went there over Easter. There was a guided tour which we took. As a person who doesn't know a lot about bikes I found it quite interesting but my husband who used to race bikes found it a little limited. There was plenty to look at. Too much for one visit so will go back sometime in the future

I brought my husband here as a surprise day out, which he thoroughly enjoyed. It's a huge place with several rooms exhibiting every type of bike you can think of. I noticed children walking around with a question sheet, which they had to find out information about the bikes, which was keeping them entertained. My disappointment was the cafe, we... More
