Birmingham is right in the middle of the UK, with great connections to the rest of the country. Being in the top 3 cities in the UK, there's range of ways to get to Birmingham from the UK or beyond!


Depending on times of travel Chiltern Trains does London to Birmingham for as little as a £5. An EDay ticket.

It's Marylebone to Birmingham Moor Street (right by the Bull Ring, a short walk from New Street Station).

Travelers to Birmingham by train should be aware that Birmingham International station is located at the airport, around 15 miles away - although there is obviously regular services from here to Birmingham Moor Street and Birmingham New Street Stations.
