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.

I was amazed at the sheer number of bikes on display, along with the extensive information about each one and the quality of the restoration. Very well presented and laid out. One small frustration was that the writing on many of the wall posters was obscured by the bikes. I found the posters really interesting so would love to have... More

Good location as it was easy to get to train to Birmingham International station then taxi to venue £5. Met by very polite reception and a trip to the cafe also worth a visit .Very nice presentation of motorcycles. Many old motorcycles I had never heard of. There were many old things like tricycles, bicycles, and other memorabilia bikes from... More

Massive collection of some rare bikes, wonderful atmosphere, really friendly staff and delighted to say we were there from Newcastle after winning a bike in one of their regular raffles! We were treated like royalty, found loads of great memorabilia to buy in the shop, and were impressed by the fact that this venue is so much more than a... More

Easy to find, situated off the A45 near the junction with the M42. A pleasant quiet site with adequate parking for bikes and cars and wheelchair accessible. A sumptuous feel to 5 halls packed with vehicles from 1890s to 1980s, all in fabulous condition from Brough Superior to Norton Commander. Helpful, friendly well informed staff and as a bonus, a...

A great day out, great hospitality. My friend and I signed up as Friends of the Museum and did the Classic Bike Training Day. The guys really looked after us and made sure we rode every bike available. It was my first time and I was a tad nervous but I was soon put at ease by the staff.

My partner is a motorbike enthusiast and rider in days long gone!!! We had lunched close by and since it was his birthday it would have been cruel not to visit. He had been here in the past but not since the terrible fire of a few years ago. What an amazing collection of bikes from the very early to... More

Despite not caring for motorcycles, my partner took me to the National Motorcycle Museum as my birthday treat. What a brilliant day out and she was nearly as thrilled as I was. From 1902 through to the 1980's, there is a mind boggling range of exquisite machinery to keep you enthralled for hours. But best of all are the welcoming... More

This has so many prototypes and other weird and wonderful British bikes, it's unbelievable in range and diversity. Very, very much worth a visit. The food in the 1st floor café was also great - sandwiches with so much filling I couldn't eat it all - and nice and tasty, too. The REALLY bad thing about this museum is actually... More
