    Use streetview to find neArby housing estates or side roads. If single yellow, read the signs. I very rarely pay for parking round my way

    According to my mate that goes there, there aren't any. It's right in Birmingham city centre and about 5 mins away from the Bullring, you aren't likely to find any free car parks anywhere close.

    There's one at the New Build as you approach Lakeside. Part is under the sports area thing (don't know what else to call it) and part out in the open next to it. I don't think you have to pay for it given how many cars park there, and my dad has never paid to do so.

    have been to the open day, if so the large astro-turfed sports field is situated near and above the car park. I'm not sure if you can officially use it but there is always spaces from what i can see.

    I went there in Sept and at the time there was no onsite parking for students unless you had a disability or important reason for it I don't think. There is Millenium Point car park which I can't even remember if you have to pay for or if its cheap but people told me that was a possibility when I was looking. Downside is, I got told to expect my car to get damaged if I took it to Brum

    Any particular reason you want to take it? Transport is fantastic there I would definitely say people can survive well without cars and the train station is right near the bull ring too
