    We are going into brum on Sunday (shopping and football) im considering driving in because the train times are rubbish !!

    Can anyone advise me where best to park and how much it might cost ?

    Mandy reccomended the bullring but says that might be pretty expensive for the whole day

    thanks :)

    Have you checked the times from Nuneaton Nat? Parking at the station is £3.50 per day for Sundays.

    There are direct trains from Nuneaton to Birmingham New Street at 11:01 and 12:01 and return direct trains at 16:22, 17:22, 18:22

    £8.30 return.

    We always use the one near the Hippodrome, easy to get in and back out of city centre.

    I tend to park at the Bull ring (Moor Street car park) as it is easily signposted from the A38 and is easy to get out. If you go up onto level 8 you literally walk across a walk way directly into Selfridges. It isn't anymore expensive than many city centre car parks and from memory it cost about £8 when I parked there all day. I don't know much about any other car parks though - sorry.

    I must say I love Birmingham for shopping and a box of Krispie Kreme's for when I get home.

    :offtopic: What is the new shopping centre in Leicester like Nat, have you been?

    Cadbury World is a bit disappointing in my opinion.
