Plan Your Travel Ahead of Limmud Festival
Flying into Birmingham International Airport
If you are flying into a London-based Airport, please look at our coach options from either Heathrow, Luton or London Victoria. You can also take the train from London Euston to Birmingham International Station.
Limmud Festival is within easy walking distance of Birmingham International Airport. The airport has a free monorail service between the airport and the train station, which is also connected to the NEC Building, and you can walk through during opening hours.
Taking the train to Birmingham International Station
If you are coming by train, we recommend you check the National Rail website for updates on planned engineering works and any strike action that could affect services to and from Birmingham International. When booking your train, make sure you buy tickets for Birmingham International, not Birmingham New Street, which is further away.
This year we’re partnering with our friends at Train Hugger. As well as encouraging festival goers to travel to Limmud by train, Train Hugger also plant a climate resilient tree, here in the UK every time you book a ticket. If everyone travelling to the festival booked through Train Hugger we’d help plant 1800 trees!
Pendigo Lake is conveniently situated near the M6 and M42, making the drive simple from either the north or south. Parking is available on-site at the Hilton hotel.
