We can see that Bordesley Park is surrounded by Countryside but how close are you to the motorway?
We are 5 minutes drive from Junction 2 of the M42. Redditch railway station is approximately 1 mile away. We are very lucky to be surrounded by beautiful countryside but still within easy driving distance of lots of major towns. It takes 20 minutes to drive into Birmingham or to Solihull. Birmingham International Airport is 25 minutes drive away.
When Should I Book The Registrar?
We recommend booking your registrar as soon as you book the venue.
The more popular time slots book up quickly. You can now book your ceremony 2 years in advance!
