Follow the A45 inwards to Birmingham centre from Airport area
Take the A4040 left turn (Acocks Green posted)
Follow Lorry Park Signs, slowly, as the route is posted but not intelligently as it could be
The final turn in is VAGUE on your first visit, so watch for it
Also it requires the driver to centre the vehicle for the right turn on an area where it is marked for oncoming traffic to turn across your front
The Lorry park has a gatekeeper so you can arrive at any time, day or night.
The cafe is down a sort of alley  and up some stairs, no signs inside.

I stayed there and was horrified by the dirty and very poorly maintained showers and washing area. It was smelly and in a poor state of repair. a truly awful place. On the plus side its cheap easy to get to and the food was very nice, just a shame about the toilets etc.

About Transport Cafe was founded and established in 1996 by a businessman who had previously been an HGV driver who started driving in the 1950s whilst an electrician on a Mobile Field Photographic Section in the Royal Air Force. The requirement for all unit personnell to drive led him from troop and equipment carrying trucks, including bowsers, onto articulated photographic laboratories which required manoeuvring in forests to remote intelligence bunkers. His experience is also in industrial electronics, ham radio, website architecture, computers plus business experience over 39 years including catering, accommodation and five times entrepreneurs.
