Date:1973

Description:Hilton Park opened on the M6 in 1970 and was operated by Toprank, and it is now operated by Moto. In 1998 it was reported to be the busiest service station on the United Kingdom motorway network. Since the opening of the M6 Toll in 2003, which bypasses Hilton Park and diverts traffic north of Birmingham in the direction of Coventry, the amount of trade has dropped and its size has been reduced.
