Owner description: 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.

“A mecca for any British motorcycle enthusiast”
Reviewed 27 December 2010

The museum is well advertised and has a good website, but nothing can replace a visit to this haven for any biker who grew up with this country's two-wheeled products. Like the Heritage Collection at Gaydon, Warwickshire, some of the motorcycles are prototypes, and one wonders what if .......; sadly the case for so much of British industry - cars, aircraft .... need I go on?
From the website I thought that just over 100 bikes were displayed - but in fact there are in excess of 800! From the earliest right up to the final offerings from the original Triumph company in Meriden, just down the road. The condition of all the bikes is better than showroom - a credit to the two engineers who look after the collection. There is one exception - three bikes are displayed in the condition they were left in after the disastrous fire in 2003, and I gather that there are still many bikes still waiting to be restored.
The collection is a credit to the private owners; car (and bike) parking is easy, there's a restaurant, and it's on the roundabout of junction 6 of the M42, on the opposite side to Birmingham International Airport and the National Exhibition Centre, and it's UNMISSABLE!
