Driving in Birmingham
Throughout the UK, people drive on the left hand side of the road and overtake on the right, so pay extra care if you’re from a country where this is reversed.
The city centre and surrounding areas can become particularly congested during peak times with traffic normally at its heaviest between 7-9 in the morning and 5-7 at night from Monday to Friday.
Weekends can be busy too but with ample NCP parking available throughout the city, you shouldn’t have a problem finding a safe place to leave your vehicle. If you decide to use on-street parking, be aware of time limits and potential charges.
